Chyna is seeking more than $40m for loss of earning damages and more than $60m in loss of future earning capacity damages, according to court filings.

The family responded to the claims with their own lawsuit, alleging that Chyna had attacked Rob.

What are the allegations being made?

In Chyna’s 2017 lawsuit alleges that her ex-fiancé, Rob, was abusive and that the Kardashian-Jenners were responsible for the cancellation of the former couple’s short-lived show. 

Chyna sued the entire family — Rob Kardashian, his mother Kris Jenner and his sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner — over claims of defamation, assault, battery, domestic violence and interfering with “prospective economic relations”.

According to documents uncovered by Radar Online, the Kardashian-Jenner clan has filed a motion demanding that "any conversation or evidence regarding their wealth or financial condition should be banned from the jury trial."

The request also stated that the mother-of-two only be permitted to discuss their financial state if "the jury returns a verdict awarding damages."

The Kardashians claimed that Chyna has planned to "present evidence of the well-known fact of Defendants' wealth during the liability phase in connection with [Plaintiff's] intentional interference with contract claim.

The Kardashians have denied all claims and have asserted that the model has plenty of income through her other ventures, namely OnlyFans.

Who is expected to testify?

The opening stages of the trial started Monday in Los Angeles Superior Courthouse with jury selection and opening statements.

Kris, Kim, Khloé and Kylie are all expected to take the stand at some point.

Ryan Seacrest, who was an executive producer on Rob & Chyna, is also on the witness list, but might testify by video deposition as he lives in New York.

A number of Hollywood bosses could also be called to take the stand including executives from E! and Bunim Murray Productions, the company behind the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians franchise, as well as Rob and Chyna’s series.
