Kris Jenner ‘Traumatized’ when Blac Chyna Pulled a Gun on Rob Just 2 Months After Kim Was Robbed at Gunpoint

Kardashian/Jenner matriarch Kris Jenner has just testified in a court case about what it felt like for Blac Chyna to pull a gun on her son, Rob. The domestic row happened just two months after daughter Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint, and Jenner emotionally testified as to what that felt like.
As a mom facing the mortality of a child for the second time in 60 days, "traumatizing" seems like an understatement. Here's what Jenner said about the incident, as well as details on the lawsuit that brought her to the stand in the first place.
Kris Testifies in Court
Jenner was emotional on the stand last Friday as she addressed an experience she hoped to never repeat: finding out that another of her children was held at gunpoint.
Jenner recalled the moment that she learned Blac Chyna had (allegedly) held a gun to son Rob's head.
Buzzfeed reports, "'She put a gun to his head,' Kris said in the courtroom, holding her finger like a gun to her own head. 'And I had to get over that.'
She got choked up as she explained that less than 60 days before this incident, her daughter Kim had been held at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room in a shocking crime that made the reality TV star change the way she presents herself to the public.
'I was traumatized,' Kris said. 'To have another one of my children have a gun [pulled on them.]'"
The incident she testified about is at the center of a lawsuit Blac Chyna filed against Kris and other Kardashian/Jenner family members.
The Lawsuit – Blac Chyna Zeroes in on the Kardashians
According to Blac Chyna, the family killed the future of Blac Chyna and Rob's reality show, Rob & Chyna, and she's looking for millions of dollars in damages specifically from Kris, Kim, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
In December 2016, according to the Kardashian family, Blac Chyna tried to kill Rob – attacking him over the course of a night, trying to strangle him with a cell phone cord, hitting him with a metal rod and pointing a gun at him.
Per Buzzfeed, "Chyna has denied the allegations, saying that while she did hold the cord around his neck 'jokingly,' she was not trying to 'strangle him' and that she did not point the gun — which she said was unloaded — at Rob's head.
Instead, she claimed, she merely raised it in the air next to him while he was FaceTiming friends as a joke.
'I'm being funny like, 'If he ever leaves me, I’ll get him,' ' Chyna testified on Wednesday.
But for Kris, it was not funny.
'[Chyna] said it was funny,' Kris told the court on Friday as she got teary. 'The gun pulled at my son’s head is not a joke.'
'You don't forget something like that,' she continued. 'It's not a joke.'
The incident caused a lot of worry and concern among the Kardashian/Jenner clan about the former couple and led them to call for Rob & Chyna to not be renewed for a second season — though they deny pressuring E! to do so, saying that the decision to pick up a new season lies with the network alone."
In her testimony, Jenner added that Rob was "hysterical" after the events and cannot imagine how scary it was.
It was this "misunderstood" incident, according to Chyna, that caused the Kardashians to pressure the network to cancel the reality show and cut her revenue future.
The Kardahian/Jenners deny putting any real pressure on the network, although a text from Kris does read, "Let's take her off the show and just make it the Rob show, raising his daughter." However, they maintain that they never contacted the network about their hope that the show would cut Chyna out.
Right now, the truth about why the show was canceled is mostly a he-said, she-said back-and-forth about who's to blame for the show's demise. According to the Kardashian/Jenner family, they're not to blame for the show's end. Chyna claims they are.
Regardless of who's to blame, it's an uphill battle for Chyna to prove first that the family caused the show to end and, second, to prove that she deserves damages.
Chyna has faced criticism online in recent months for trying to get more money out of Rob – fans noting that she barely has her children and doesn't deserve any more child support than she already gets. They see the lawsuit as another money grab.
As more and more previously private details about the end of Rob and Chyna's relationship come out through the lawsuit, it's clear that there's more than meets the eye hear – and it will be a complicated case to determine.
