Blac Chyna‘s request to have a court dismiss Rob Kardashian’s assault and battery lawsuit against her has been denied.

The “Rob & Chyna” star — whose real name is Angela White — had filed a motion in February asking for the case to be dropped on the grounds she “did not intend to inflict injury on Rob and because she did not, in fact, harm him” but a court has ruled that the lawsuit can continue.

Minutes from a court hearing, the motion, obtained by People magazine, stated: “The Motion for Summary Judgement filed by Angela Renee White on 02/20/2020 is Denied. Defendant’s alternative motion for summary adjudication is DENIED as to both issues.”

Kardashian, 33, and his half-sister Kylie Jenner had filed the lawsuit in 2017, in which the sock designer claimed his former fiancée had tried to choke him with an iPhone cord during a fight in December 2016 at a house owned by the beauty mogul.

Kardashian allegedly suffered injuries to his neck, head and face and claimed Chyna also caused more than $100,000 worth of damage to Jenner’s abode.

In response, Chyna submitted a document of “undisputed” evidence, which she claimed showed Kardashian “did not suffer any cognizable” damage, and “the only ‘harm” he suffered was his devastation at the makeup artist leaving their home with their daughter Dream, who is now 3.

The documents also pointed out that the former couple reconciled several days after the argument and that Kardashian — who went on to drop all but two of the original charges against Chyna — didn’t seek medical treatment or “suffer any loss of earnings.”

Jenner “voluntarily dismissed her claims” in March 2018.

Chyna’s lawyer argued in the motion: “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’.

“Chyna was being her very outgoing, colorful and joking self with Rob, not a fiancée who intended to inflict injuries on her fiancé and the father of her beautiful daughter.”

The former couple split for good in February 2017 and have endured an acrimonious relationship since then.
