Rob Kardashian says that Blac Chyna tried to choke him with an iPhone cord during a fight last December, according to a new lawsuit filed by the reality star and his sister Kylie Jenner against his ex-fiancé.
Kardashian and Jenner are suing Chyna for battery, assault and vandalism.
The Blast was the first who reported the suit. And in the complaint filed Wednesday, Rob and Kylie claim that they were forced to seek legal recourse against the 29-year-old Chyna as they “endured several months of injuries “after her attempt to extort the Kardashian family for her own monetary gains”.
The complaint that was also obtained by PEOPLE, claims also that Chyna’s relationship with Rob and the decision to have a baby with him was “nothing short of an outright fraud to shake down the Kardashian family.”
Chyna is also branded a stripper that has “created a reputation as a money-hungry, shameless pseudo-celebrity”, in the complaint.
PEOPLE reached out to Chyna’s lawyer and rep and in the court documents, the 30-year-old Rob claims that she “became extremely intoxicated on drugs and alcohol and physically assaulted” him on Dec. 14, 2016. First, Kardashian says, Chyna “conferenced” his friends on FaceTime, “and was carelessly playing with Rob’s gun unaware if the gun was loaded or if the safety was on.”
Later on that night, Chyna also “lunged towards Rob with an iPhone charging cable and attempted to strangle [him] with the cord around his neck.”
The father of one “was able to escape her grasp, however he suffered injuries to his neck” while Chyna “chased after Rob and repeatedly struck him in the head and face,” according to court documents.
The complaint says “Chyna pursued Rob outside the house as [he] tried to escape in his Bentley,” which caused her to throw “a nearby chair at Rob’s car causing damage to the vehicle and also used a metal rod to injure Rob.”
But a close source to Chyna told PEOPLE that the fight was not a “real thing.”
“It makes sense on their part to come up with a counter claim for the very real claim made against him,” the source said.
“Revenge porn, posting naked pictures to 9 million people across the world,” the source continued. “None of that compares to an altercation that they got into at Kylie’s house. They’re so miles apart and it really distracts from the real sexual and domestic abuse that took place.”
The source also added that Rob had been using Snapchat during the time the altercation took place: “Clearly he’s talking about their breakup that he put on Snapchat when she left the house. This all happened before Christmas. If he had an issue in December he should have raised that.”
But the Kardashian claims that she damaged a television, broke down a door, also damaged the walls and destroyed cell phones in the house. Kylie, 20, claims that the damages to her house were in excess of $100,000.
The complaint also says that Chyna “terrorized Kylie by telling her to get tests for sexually transmitted diseases, because Kylie was dating Tyga who was the father of Chyna’s first child, King Cairo” as well as saying she “would threaten to beat up Rob’s sisters and was disrespectful towards Rob’s mother Kris.”
Three days after the incident, Kardashian shared footage of empty rooms in the home and claimed Chyna “took the baby, took the whole nursery we built.”
In the suit, Kardashian and Jenner allege Chyna “became pregnant with Rob’s child, demonstrating one of [her] deliberate actions to cash in on the Kardashians fame.”
Then the couple reunited by Christmas, cuddling in some pictures on social media. The pair lived together after welcoming their daughter, Dream, last November in one of Kylie’s Los Angeles homes.
“About a month after Dream was born, I moved in with Rob at Kylie’s house for about a week. I put my pride aside — and I’m very prideful. I was like, ‘You know what? I actually want to be with this person. So guess what, Chyna, you need to go live in this lady’s house,’ which is his sister,” Chyna told PEOPLE in July. ” ‘There’s no bad blood or whatever, so be a family and figure it out.’ ”
She continued, “I moved in and one week later was like, ‘You know what? I don’t deserve this. I’m out. I’m not going to be disrespected.’ ”
In an April episode in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Jenner explained that Chyna and her brother were staying in one of her homes.
Jenner revealed, “My mom calls me to kind of keep me informed on what was going on in my home, and apparently Chyna threw something at my television that I left there.”
“It’s a little disrespectful, and I wouldn’t do that to someone else’s home,” Jenner said.
The battle started after Rob shared graphic and expletive-ridden content about his ex on Instagram and Twitter including some naked pictures. He also accused her of drug/alcohol abuse in July.
Chyna claimed in court documents filed earlier this year that it is Kardashian who has a history of violence. She alleged that he “punched” her during an altercation in April.
“Chyna is pleased that Rob has agreed to peacefully coparent Dream with her, as she has been requesting all along,” Chyna’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, told PEOPLE. “Because Rob agreed to continue to stay away from Chyna and not contact her, Chyna has agreed to take the domestic abuse hearing scheduled for Monday, Sept. 18, off calendar. She will always have the right to go back into court if further incidents of domestic abuse occur.”
Rob and Kylie are now suing Chyna for damages done to Kylie’s house and punitive damages, Rob’s alleged injuries and an end to Chyna’s talent agreement with E! Network.
