Blac Chyna rocks a black midi dress in LA… after her attorney claimed Kris Jenner is trying to ‘financially ruin’ her
Blac Chyna stepped out rocking a figure-hugging black dress while visiting a pal in Beverly Hills, weeks after losing her lawsuit against the Kardashians.
Just five days after her attorney claimed the famous family’s matriarch Kris Jenner is attempting to ‘financially ruin’ the reality star, 34, the mom-of-two appeared in high spirits as she flashed a friendly smile at onlookers.
The model (born Angela Renée White), who sued several of the Kardashians over the cancellation of her 2016 show Rob & Chyna, accessorized her chic ensemble with a pair of open-toed heels with gold accents.

In addition to displaying major sideboob while going braless underneath her frock, the ex of Rob Kardashian sported Dolce & Gabbana earrings and colorful manicure.
Last week, Chyna’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani, told DailyMail.com that Jenner — the grandmother of Chyna’s daughter — is trying to ‘financially ruin’ her client.
At a two-week trial in April, Chyna had sought $108 million in damages, accusing Kim Kardashian, her sisters Khloé and Kylie Jenner and their mom, Kris, of defaming her and plotting to get her reality series axed.

While the jury did not completely exonerate the billionaire clan from blame, they did not feel Chyna deserved any damages and awarded her zero.
It was a massive defeat for the one-time model and now — rubbing salt into her her wounds — the Kardashians are demanding that she pay the $391,000 they say they spent fighting her lawsuit. And that doesn’t include their lawyers’ fees.
Attorney Ciani hit back Wednesday, telling DailyMail.com, ‘Kris Jenner’s attempt to financially ruin Angela White, the mother of her granddaughter Dream Kardashian, will not work.’
Dream’s father is Kris’ son Rob Kardashian, Chyna’s former fiancé and her co-star on Rob & Chyna.

‘Under California law, costs are awarded to defendants only when they are without fault.
‘In this case, a Los Angeles jury reached a verdict that defendant Kris Jenner falsely claimed that “Chyna beat the s*** out of Rob’s face” and that defendant Kylie Jenner falsely claimed that Chyna would “proceed with using and physically abusing my brother.”
‘The same Los Angeles jury reached a verdict that defendants Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner did not act reasonably and in good faith to protect their own economic interests in the Rob & Chyna show.
‘Angela White’s objectives in the litigation were to prove that Kris and Kylie Jenner’s statements were false and that all four defendants did not act reasonably and in good faith regarding Season 2 of Rob & Chyna.
‘Because Ms. White achieved these litigation objectives, defendants cannot be considered “prevailing parties” under California law and they cannot recover their exorbitant litigation costs of $391,000 from Ms. White.’

According to a list of the purported expenses obtained by TMZ, the Kardashian–Jenner clan says Chyna owes enormous sums for a variety of trial costs including more than $9,000 for service of process, over $7,000 to host electronic documents, nearly $20,000 to pay the court reporter and $63,000 to cover depositions.
The single largest item was nearly $185,000 for ‘models, enlargements, and photocopies of exhibits.’
The family didn’t even bother listing a purpose for a final charge for almost $97,000, which they merely labeled as ‘Other.’
In addition to those expense, Chyna will be on the hook for the Kardashian–Jenners’ attorney fees.
According to the outlet, the judge who oversaw the lawsuit will have to sign off on the charges before Chyna will be required to cough up the money.
In response to the fees, the reality star’s mother Tokyo Toni is attempting to fundraise $400,000 to cover them.

Chyna had accused Kris and her daughters Kim, Khloé and Kylie of making statements to ruin or defame her reputation, along with trying to get her reality series canceled.
Though the jury ruled that the Kardashian–Jenners were at fault in some instances, Chyna was not awarded any damages.
Rob Kardashian’s ex was in the courtroom and showed off a seemingly emotionless face as the verdict was read, but the defendants, who had attended nearly all of the court sessions, skipped it to attend the Met Gala in New York City.
Although the jury did find that the Kardashians were not justified in telling Rob & Chyna producers that she had abused Rob, they didn’t believe that contributed to the cancellation of the series.
Kim was out of danger even before the verdict was reached, as the judge threw her out of the suit during deliberations.
Chyna has vowed to file an appeal.
