In November 2017, Chyna filed a separate action against Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kylie alleging that they lied about the model assaulting Rob to E! executives to prevent her from obtaining a second season of the former couple’s reality television show, Rob & Chyna.
According to court documents, Chyna’s attorney deposed the four Kardashian-Jenner members in 2019 and received a combined 25 hours of testimony on the record.
This week, the Kardashian-Jenner lawyers argued that additional depositions will not reasonably lead to “admissible evidence.” They argued the testimony would simply repeat their previous testimony and be given more than five years after the alleged incident.
In comparison, the prior depositions were taken in 2019, “years closer to the underlying events in 2016,” the Kardashian-Jenner attorneys argued in court documents. “If the Non-Parties’ depositions were relevant to Ms. White’s defense, she would not have waited four years after the suit was filed and weeks before the close of discovery to seek them.”
