As Kris Jenner recalled the emotional episode between her son Rob Kardashian and his then-girlfriend Blac Chyna in 2016, she became emotional.
Jenner testified for the second day from the witness stand in a Los Angeles courtroom on Friday that she believed Chyna attempted to murder her son. At the time, she said she was told that Chyna pointed a gun at Kardashian’s head, tried to strangle him with a phone cord, and hit him with a metal pole while intoxicated.
Her testimony will be the first of four defendants, including her daughters Kim, Khloe, and Kylie, to appear in Blac Chyna’s $100 million lawsuit alleging the women conspired to have her reality show Rob & Chyna canceled and damage her celebrity status. “It was complete chaos. It was scary,” said Jenner, the 66-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians matriarch.
Chyna’s testimony earlier this week mostly dealt with the fight and the anniversary of the show’s renewal the night before. She revealed that she had joked with her fiance when she wrapped a phone cable around his neck and grabbed the gun he had left on the nightstand.
But Jenner said putting a gun to her son’s head was “not a joke.” “He was a mess,” she recalled while talking to her son after the incident on December 15, 2016. “I could only imagine how he felt. This was a horrible situation. I was heartbroken.”
Jenner began to shed tears while remembering the Rob Kardashian-Chyna spat, which happened months after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. She said knowing that both her children had a gun pointed at them within the same year was traumatizing for her.

As a stand-by witness, Jenner said that her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, separated her son and Chyna – who, according to Jenner, damaged an expensive TV in the master bedroom. But after Gamble pulled the two apart and asked Rob Kardashian to leave, Jenner was told that Chyna smashed a chair on the windshield of her son’s car.
Lynne Ciani, Chyna’s lawyer, asked why Jenner or anyone else did not call the police. Jenner said her security team helped diffuse the intense ordeal. Jenner claimed she wanted to help Chyna. “We didn’t put Chyna on the show and give her this fabulous life to be taken away,” she said. “We created other opportunities. I was hopeful that it would be OK. That’s why I didn’t call (the police).”
Ciani tried to gain clarity about a text message sent from Kris Jenner to Rob & Chyna showrunner that read Chyna “beat the (expletive) out of Rob’s face.” She said the phrase was used as a figure of speech.
Ciani asked about another text she sent to the showrunner that read “We need to ditch this (expletive)” after her son’s altercation with the Chyna. Jenner said she was very angry and upset at the time. However, she claims she never had any involvement in hampering Chyna’s time on the show.
Chyna’s lawsuit, filed in 2017, alleges defamation and interference with contracts. It accuses Jenner of being a ringleader who used her daughters in a campaign to defame Chyna as abusive to Rob Kardashian. Chyna and Rob Kardashian share a daughter named Dream.
