Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been at the center of major controversies since, essentially, they first got together. Whether it be from their tumultuous relationship or subsequent breakup, Kardashian and Chyna have been on one rocky and public road.
Now, however, they seem to be on the same side of one thing: A lawsuit.
According to The Wrap, the pair’s former friend, Pilot Jones, is claiming that their incessant “threats” and harassment lead him to attempt suicide.
The suit claims that Jones and Chyna took multiple photographs together in 2015, one of which they were posed kissing each other, “evidencing their closeness,” The Wrap reported.
However, that picture of their locked lips happened to surface in 2016, when Kardashian and Chyna were together, in a gossip magazine. According to the lawsuit, Chyna and Kardashian assumed Jones released the picture himself and, in response, the two allegedly began an onslaught of harassment:
“Defendants intimidated Plaintiff, threatened to physically harm Plaintiff, threatened to beat and kill Plaintiff, threatened to ruin Plaintiff’s reputation, threatened to disseminate private information (such as his sexual orientation) to the public, and threatened to release his private cellular phone number and his email address to the public.”
The suit also claims that Kardashian made “terrorist threats” against him such as, “You are about to get your ass beat by every Mexican in L.A., including me … I promise you that.”
The suit also states that Chyna published Jones’s sexual orientation on her very public Instagram, writing:
“…this young man is ‘GAY’!!! The only reason we took those pictures other than me trying to be a good friend so he could send it to his boyfriend to make him jealous and say that he’s going back to girls!”
Jones stated in the suit that his private information, such as his cellphone number and email address, were released to the public, which led to “scurrilous, disgusting and threatening messages from unidentified members of the public.”
According to The Wrap, the repeated alleged harassment led to Jones’s self-esteem and self-worth being “totally destroyed” and he “eventually attempted suicide, although his effort was not successful and he began therapy to restore himself.”
Specifically, the suit alleges defamation, cyberbullying, public disclosure of private facts, and intentional infliction of emotional distress; it is seeking unspecified damages, according to reports.
Although the suit consists of just allegations at this time, it’s yet another public controversy surrounding Kardashian and Chyna.
