Rob Kardashian claims that ex-fiancée Blac Chyna beat him with a metal rod and pulled a gun on him during a December 2016 brawl.
In the Kardashian-Jenners’ ongoing legal battle with Chyna, Rob, 35, testified on Wednesday that his relationship with Chyna, 33, was violent from the start, and alleged that the mother of his child beat and threatened to kill him.
Rob — who wore a black button-down, long-sleeve shirt for his court appearance — said the night of Dec. 14, 2016 started off with them joking around on their social media, with both of them posting video footage of them kissing and laughing.
Inside the courtroom, video was shown of Rob waving bands of $100 bills and throwing it at Chyna, with the model looking pleased.
But the night allegedly became violent with the discord lasting until the next morning. Rob alleged that Chyna pulled a gun on him twice, hit him with a metal rod, scratched him and struck him with an iPhone cord.
“She landed several blows to my face, my back,” Rob claimed of the metal pole Chyna allegedly used to hit him.
“She ripped my shirt early in the evening and we were throwing money around in our Snapchat,” he continued. “In the beginning I thought it was playful. I didn’t think it got serious until the second gun encounter … you don’t point a gun on your fiancé’s head whether you think it’s loaded or not.”
When asked by Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, why he didn’t show bruising in videos recorded after the incident, Rob shot back, “She landed several blows on my body (with the metal rod) … but not everyone is going to bruise just because someone hit you. It didn’t leave a mark when I had a gun to my temple. The cord around my neck, I’m sure that left a mark, but no, I didn’t need a band aid.”
“Everything I testified to happened,” Rob continued. “She was on a cocaine and alcohol. She has a history of doing this. Just because I didn’t have marks doesn’t mean it’s not true. Stop putting that out there! It’s not fair.”
The reality star was noticeably agitated during his nearly two-hour testimony, raising his voice several times and taking issue with Ciani repeating questions.
When asked about spending New Year’s Eve together after the fight, Rob responded, “I have social anxiety … and I gained a lot of weight. She forced me to go out of the house. I went to dinner and that was that. I wasn’t happy. Going out of the house after she put a gun to my head. She put that on her Snapchat, but that to me isn’t happy. That’s just fake.”
Rob said he wanted to make his relationship work and supported Chyna — with whom he shares daughter Dream, 5 — even when she repeatedly allegedly abused him. He said he would often sleep in his car until the next morning.
Rob said he was in a “very low” and the “weakest” point of his life when he first started speaking to Chyna, but at the time he was still single and was also messaging other women.
“I was probably at the worst place in my life … She was the one person who brought me in,” he said. “I was just comfortable with her… and I was at my loneliest point. I ignored all the bad things. I have a very loving family but I just gave myself to her.”
He also said he never loved her even when he proposed to her. He said he did that more as a publicity for her and their now-defunct E! reality series, “Rob & Chyna.”
Chyna told the court last week that she was “just joking” when she put a gun to Rob’s head and wrapped an iPhone cord around his neck.
Chyna claimed the threat wasn’t serious and that Rob appeared to find her actions amusing.
“It was not loaded,” she testified. “I would never shoot Rob or anyone at that. It was just joking, like, ‘HA, HA!’”
The Kardashian-Jenners previously rebutted Chyna’s claims that they used their influence to cancel her and Rob’s show. Instead, they argued that they were trying to protect Rob from an abusive relationship.
Chyna is suing the Kardashian-Jenners for $40 million for loss of earnings and more than $60 million in future earnings. She claims they used their power to tarnish her reputation and prevent financial opportunities.
Earlier this week, the family filed a motion to have case against them thrown out.
