Closing arguments are due to begin Thursday afternoon in a trial that pits former reality TV star Blac Chyna against Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, closed the plaintiff’s case Thursday morning. Chyna is suing the four women, alleging they conspired to frame her as her former fiancé Rob Kardashian’s violent abuser in order to ruin her television career.
Kardashian attorney David G. Rhodes had previously called her key witness, Kris Jenner’s longtime boyfriend Corey Gamble, off duty due to scheduling issues. On Thursday, he declined to call any of the Kardashians back on the stand as a defense witness, as he suggested when he failed to cross-examine them after each testified earlier in the trial.

Before closing arguments began, Judge Gregory W. Alarcon denied a motion by Chyna’s attorney to allow Chyna to take the stand again because during her testimony she was upset after seeing a photo of herself- even naked that was in a restraining order she received against Rob Kardashian. in 2017.
The Kardashians’ attorney showed her the document with the photo during her interrogation. The judge said both parties accepted all exhibits, including the restraining order, before the trial.
Ciani said she disagreed in this form.
“I insisted that the nude photo not be shown to the complainant,” she said.
