According to court documents obtained by People, Blac Chyna filed a motion to dismiss her ex’s claims on the grounds that she “did not intent to inflict injury on Rob and because she did not in fact harm him". 

The case against the 32-year-old reality star was filed by her ex Rob Kardashian and his half-sister, Kylie Jenner in 2017.

Among the charges, Rob claimed that Chyna had attempted to choke him with an iPhone cord during a fight the previous December in Kylie's home. In the motion, Rob also claimed that extensive damage was done to Kylie's home by Chyna during the altercation amounting to $100 000 (about R137 0870 in 2017).

According to the Daily Mail UK, Blac Chyna's motion to dismiss the lawsuit included a document detailing undisputed evidence that allegedly showed that Rob 'did not suffer any cognizable' damage and that the 'only harm' he suffered was related to his heartbreak due to Chyna moving out with their now 3-year-old child, Dream Kardashian. 

The court documents submitted by Chyna also point out that the pair reconciled a few days after the altercation and that Rob did not 'seek any medical treatment' or 'suffer any loss of earnings'. 

Rob did, however, drop all but two of the charges he initially filed and Kylie also 'voluntarily dismissed her claims' in 2018. 

Chyna's lawyers in court papers stated that other than admitted damage to a T.V. set, Chyna did not cause any physical destruction to Kylie Jenner's home during the alleged assault. 

The pair split in February 2017 and even after agreeing to joint custody of their daughter, have been followed by a myriad of drama and separate lawsuits alleging abuse.
