Kris Jenner joked that she needed a drink after the Kardashian-Jenner family won their defamation lawsuit against Blac Chyna.

Chyna – whose real name is Angela White – sued 67-year-old Jenner and her daughters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner for defamation and willful interference with her E! contract.

The trial, which began in April, came five years after Rob Kardashian’s ex-girlfriend filed her lawsuit against them.

Chyna, 34, and Rob Kardashian, 35, were first linked in January 2016 when they shared a much-loved photo on Instagram. Their engagement was confirmed months later in April, and in May, the owner of Lashed Bar announced she was expecting the couple’s first child together. Dream Renée Kardashian was born in November.

The pair dated on and off while raising Dream, but eventually broke up for good in 2017.

Following their split, Arthur George’s sock designer leaked nude photos of the mother of two – who shares son King Cairo with Kylie Jenner’s ex Tyga. He also accused her of cheating on him, neglecting their daughter and more.

Later that same day, Chyna took to Snapchat to spread her own accusations against Rob Kardashian.

“Rob, you’ve done all this, but you beat me up and you’re trying to act [like] it never happens!!” she claimed at the time. “You capture me, I swear to god!!!!! About my kids, but I’m supposed to be quiet because you’re a Kardashian.”

In the end, the father of one was banned from the platform. According to the bio of his current Instagram account, it is now operated by Jenner Communications.

Chyna believed that the nude photo incident, as well as the influence of the Kardashian-Jenner clan on E!resulted in the couple’s show Rob & Chyna dropped by the network. A second season had been announced prior to its cancellation.

In the most recent episode of The Kardashians titled “It’s Met Monday!” – pre-obtained by News week— the famous family was open about the fear they felt while waiting for the verdict hours before the Met Gala.

“Today is a beautiful day, but it’s still… we’re waiting for the verdict and I’m trying not to get distracted by this, but it’s weighing on my mind,” said Kris Jenner.

In the next scene, Kim Kardashian, getting her hair and makeup done for the biggest fashion night, told the room, “Guys, the verdict is in. The verdict is in! We’ve got 30 minutes. Let’s all pray , OKAY?”

Khloé Kardashian, who sat next to her big sister, said she felt like she was “hyperventilating.”

“We didn’t do anything,” the Good American co-founder insisted. “The bad guys can’t always win. It will just set the tone that anyone can sue anyone.”

Kim Kardashian, who is studying to become a lawyer, admitted she was “nervous” about the outcome.

“It’s a jury trial, and in so many cases I’ve seen, I’ve seen things go really wrong. But I also want confidence in the jury and our legal representation, and it’s just a really scary position to be in.”

Khloé’s phone started ringing, and when she answered it, she heard Kris Jenner and her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, yell, “We won!”

“I want to cry. We’re winners across the board,” Kris Jenner said in the car, seemingly on his way to the gala. ‘I need something to drink. All praise be to God. It’s taken six years to get here.’

A jury ruled that the Kardashian-Jenners were not liable for damages in the defamation lawsuit and were not liable for pressuring the network to drop the show.

“I’m so excited. Thank you, Lord,” Kris Jenner said in a separate confessional. “I’ve never prayed so hard in my life. I’m happy for Rob. I’m happy for my girls. I’m happy that we can put this chapter of our lives behind us and move on to more joyful things in life . .”

The Kardashians airs weekly episodes on Thursdays on Hulu.
