Blac Chyna Suing Over Reports of Cocaine Abuse

Over the past year messy details from Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian's bitter child custody battle have been steadily leaked to media outlets [click here here and here if you missed that]. 

Now Chyna is suing for defamation of character and invasion of privacy...
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Chyna has filed a lawsuit against TMZ and American Media for defamation, conversion, public disclosure of private facts, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
In the suit, Chyna accuses the defendants of violating her rights by publishing stories based on alleged confidential documents filed in her custody battle with Rob Kardashian over their daughter Dream.
On January 3, 2020, Rob filed court documents in the custody battle accusing Chyna of neglecting Dream and endangering her health and safety. She says the documents contained false and defamatory accusations against her.
In the documents filed by Rob, he accused her of using illegal drugs like cocaine, that she taught their daughter to twerk, neglected Dream’s basic hygiene and that she was repeatedly drunk in front of their kid. Chyna says all of this is a lie.
She says TMZ somehow obtained the confidential document and published the false statements to the world. She says the document is sealed under California law. Chyna is unsure how the documents were leaked to the outlet.
To make matters worse, she says her custody agreement was also leaked to US Weekly (owned by American Media) last month. Chyna says she was trying to hash out things with Rob privately but “that peace was short-lived.”
Chyna is seeking unspecified damages
