The Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian drama continues with Chyna not only giving an interview but also being granted a restraining order. While this is expected at this point between the two, many are wondering what this means for their baby daughter Dream Kardashian and what could possibly happen next.
It has been less than a week since Rob Kardashian went on a tirade on social media airing all of his and Chyna’s dirty laundry. Not only did he spill all sorts of secrets, but he also posted sexually explicit pictures of the mother of his child. Since then, Chyna—whose real name is Angela White—hired attorney Lisa Bloom, and accused Kardashian of being physically abusive.
Since hiring her attorney, the reality star has been granted a temporary restraining order from Kardashian. According to Fox News, Rob must stay at least 100 feet away from her, her home, car and workplace. The order also prevents him from posting not only pictures of Chyna on social media, but also their daughter Dream. On Aug. 8, 2017, the couple will face off in court to determine if the restraining order should be upheld.
Kardashian was not in attendance at the hearing. However his lawyer Robert Shapiro - yes, the infamous lawyer from the OJ Simpson case - gave a statement to the press outside the courthouse.
“We apologize and have offered our regrets for what has taken place over the past couple of days. And now we move forward to do one thing and one thing only: Whatever's in the best interest of the child.”
Bloom also gave a statement calling this a “complete and total victory” for her client. Chyna was at the court when the restraining order was granted and gave a brief statement to the press.
"First and foremost, I want to thank the judge for granting me this restraining order to protect me and I want to get back to co-parenting Dream," says Chyna.
Speaking of 8-month old Dream, all this legal drama complicates how her parents will share custody. Right now, there is no official custody agreement between Chyna and Kardashian. The two have an unofficial arrangement where she spends half the week with her mom and the other half with her dad, and according to documents filed by Bloom that will remain the same, with the nannies taking care of the pick-up and drop-off of the baby girl.
However, it is not the legal drama that could be most harmful to youngest Kardashian, it is the craziness between her parents. Since the beginning of their relationship, Chyna and Kardashian have been plagued with drama. They were constantly breaking up and making up. Anyone who watched their reality show, Rob and Chyna, has seen the explosive former couple at its worst. Even though they are no longer together, the drama just keeps coming, and that can’t be good for their daughter. It doesn’t matter how many times either of them say Dream comes first actions speak louder than words.
Now that Chyna has a restraining order against Kardashian, and given her first official interview since his tirade, what is next legally depends on how she decides to proceed. There could still be criminal charges against Kardashian as revenge porn is a crime in California, and since their daughter is being shuttled back and forth by nannies, it might just be best if they cut off all communication. Now that Kardashian can’t post on social media about Chyna or Dream as long as Chyna doesn’t post about him, things just might calm down with these two.
Sadly, it is unlikely either Kardashian or Chyna will ever totally put their differences aside. However, since Kardashian has not posted on social media or given an official statement—other than the one given by Shapiro since his tirade—maybe there is hope. Based on the interview she gave earlier, it does seem like Chyna has learned a lesson and just wants to move on. However, with their tempered past, it might be difficult for these two to stop all their crazy antics.
Only time will tell if Kardashian and Chyna can move forward with their lives while putting the needs of Dream first. What do you think about the latest saga of involving the reality stars?
