The Kardashians star, 41, endured another day of court when attorneys from both sides gave their closing arguments in the lawsuit — and Davidson, 28, attended the courthouse for moral support, PEOPLE confirms.
Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Khloé Kardashian also appeared in court on Thursday.
Chyna – born Angela White – is currently suing Kim, mother Kris Jenner and sisters Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner for defamation and willful interference with her contract with E! The 33-year-old model was previously engaged to Kris’ son Rob Kardashian, with whom she shares 5-year-old daughter Dream and starred with E!’s. Rob & Chyna†
In his speech, Kardashian-Jenner family attorney Michael G. Rhodes spoke about Chyna and Rob’s relationship, claiming that “they were happy at one point,” but it just didn’t work out.
Rhodes explained that the crux of the matter was Chyna’s belief that their E! reality show Rob & Chynawhich she claims the family scrapped after one season was about her.
“It was never her show. This is the central issue in this case. She thinks this show was about her. It wasn’t her show. It was a show about a relationship. It was about both of them,” he argued.
“It’s just one of those relationships that didn’t work out. This should have been a light-hearted romantic comedy. Rob and Chyna in love was the working title. It’s what the network was trying to produce. The premise of the show was to be lighthearted, a romantic family comedy,” continued Rhodes.

Referring to the negative press around Chyna, he added: “This was not the kind of content the network wanted to spread. The network wanted the same tone as Keeping up with the Kardashians† And yes, the Kardashians have problems. They are also real people, but at some point it becomes too much. It got dark and heavy.”
“This is a real family. Yes, they are famous, but they are real people,” he added of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
Rhodes noted that there was an option for season 2 of Rob & Chynabut never an obligation or obligation to renew the series.
“The relationship at the heart of Rob & Chyna was unraveling. They were on/off, on/off, but in February it’s gone off the cliffs,” Rhodes said, before noting, “This doesn’t have a happy ending. It’s a bit sad. This is a very sad story. It’s grim.”
“If you’re the network manager, is this the show you want to air?” he added. “Everyone was trying to save the show. They weren’t trying to kill the show. They were trying to buy time to save it; to clear a way to save it.”

Meanwhile, Chyna’s attorney Lynne Ciani disputed the claims of an “assassination attempt” against Rob, 35, arguing that he had no scars on his body and did not call the police or go to a hospital afterward. She also argued that if he truly believed Chyna was planning to kill him, Rob wouldn’t have left their daughter in the house.
“They’re real. They have their ups and downs,” Ciani said.
In addition, Ciani disputes claims of damage to Kylie’s home, saying that “had there been a murderous attack” the damage would have been much worse, and later asked where the security footage was. “Videos are your friend when you’re accused of something you didn’t do,” Ciani said.
Speaking to a gingerbread house that Chyna allegedly destroyed in her fight with Rob, Rhodes asked the model, “Why would you attack a gingerbread house in your rage? What does that mean?”
“It represented everything about the Kardashian brand,” he added. “It’s everything she won’t be. They tried. They tried their best, but everything they worried about came true.”

Chyna has been embroiled in a legal battle with the Kardashians since 2017. She sued Rob and his family in October, accusing them of damaging her brand and abusing her verbally and physically. The lawsuit came after Rob leaked nude photos of Chyna on Instagram. Amid his social media anger, Rob also accused Chyna of substance abuse, alcohol abuse and infidelity.
Chyna claimed this incident and the family’s influence on E! probably led to Rob & Chyna‘s cancellation, despite reports that it has been renewed for a second season. As a result, her legal team has since argued that Chyna likely missed out on millions of dollars in earnings through related appearances and social media posts.
Chyna, in turn, said she sued the famous family “to stand up for” [her] legal rights and to lead by example [her] children.”
“What they did was so wrong. I’m so grateful that a jury will finally listen to what really happened behind closed doors – the lies that were told and the damage that was done,” she tweeted before the trial. “At the end of the trial, I will be proud to tell King and Dream that I have done everything I can to right the wrongs that have been done to me. And that in my life I hope they will do the same.” being able to stand up for themselves when it matters.”
Although Chyna has previously dropped Rob from the lawsuit against his mother and sisters, she is suing him for the revenge porn he posted. That process is expected to start soon.
