Kris Jenner’s business partner and talent manager, Corey Gamble, told jurors that he personally witnessed Blac Chyna physically abusing Rob Kardashian on December 15, 2016, and had to step in to stop him, during his testimony in a Los Angeles courtroom. Angels on Tuesday.
Gamble told the court that on the morning of December 15, 2016, Kris Jenner’s phone rang around 7 a.m. and her son Rob was calling. Gamble said that he “could hear Chyna screaming in the background.”
“I was telling Rob, ‘Fuck you, I’m going to kill you, you fat son of a bitch.’ It was a hostile situation, I put on the clothes closest to me and went home,” Gamble said.
At the time, Rob and Chyna lived at Kylie Jenner’s house, which Gamble said was four or five blocks away in the Hidden Hills neighborhood near Calabasas, California. The December 15, 2016 incident took center stage in Chyna’s defamation lawsuit against Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian.
Chyna, whose legal name is Angela White, is seeking $100 million in damages from the Kardashian-Jenners. She claims that she unfairly trash-talked E! Network executives five years ago, claiming the family led to the cancellation of their “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” spin-off series, “Rob & Chyna.”
Last week, Chyna alleged that the physical confrontation was due to the couple “just goofing around” and celebrating the “Rob & Chyna” renewal, but that the mood changed when Rob stole her phone, jealous behavior which, according to her, continued throughout their relationship. The family alleges that Chyna drank heavily that night and then threatened to kill Rob, pointing an unloaded gun to his head at one point.
Gamble was one of the only other people present that day during the confrontation, and the second to testify. (Chyna also discussed the events of that day during her testimony.)
He told the jury that he drove to Kylie’s house “within two minutes” and when he entered he saw Chyna yelling at Rob with a cane in her hand.
“Whatever he had in his hand, he threw it. He grabbed a long charger cord on the ground and started whipping it around and started hitting it,” before Gamble said he inserted himself between the pair.
“I could smell the strong alcohol on her,” he added.
Gamble told the court that he ordered Rob to get his car keys to get out of the premises while he was trying to cordon off Chyna in another room and “realized I had locked Rob out with my car.”
Gamble described trying to leave to move his car quickly without allowing Rob and Chyna to have contact again.
When he moved his car and Rob tried to get into his, Gamble said Chyna “was punching him in the back of the head, threw a chair in front of the car, and then tried to throw a patio table, which I took. her”.
Gamble said that once Rob was able to leave, he temporarily hid Chyna’s keys so she wouldn’t come after him. After Rob left, Gamble said that Chyna, still angry over the incident, said, “I wouldn’t like this fat son of a bitch if he wasn’t part of the family!”
“As far as I know, December 15, 2016 was when the relationship ended. I grew up with that type of behavior, it reminds me of everything. I understood that it was not going to stop,” Gamble said of the alleged mix. of alcohol and physical abuse.
The trial continues Wednesday and is scheduled to last through Friday.
