Four years on, a judge has ordered the Kardashian-Jenners to be deposed once again in their brother Rob Kardashian's domestic violence case against ex, Blac Chyna.

Rob and Chyna, who had an E! reality show of the same name during their short-lived romance, share daughter Dream Kardashian. Things turned sour between the two, however, and a custody battle followed.

In 2017, Rob also filed a lawsuit against Chyna, alleging she committed domestic violence against him in December 2016 in the home they once shared.

In November 2017, Chyna filed a separate action against the Kardashian-Jenners, namely Kris, Kim, Khloé and Kylie, saying they lied about her assaulting Rob, to prevent the couple from getting another season of their TV series.

A judge deposed the famous family at the time.

Now, though they've fought against being deposed in the case, a judge has ordered all four to speak again.

"Chyna will be permitted to question all four individuals, despite their objection to the trial court that they are 'too busy running billion-dollar companies' to comply with Chyna's subpoenas," Chyna's attorney Lynne Ciani said in a statement to E! News. "The trial court agreed with Chyna that Kris, Kim, Khloe, and Kylie are not above the law and they must respond under oath to questions by her attorney."

The trial is scheduled to start on 23 February.
