Blac Chyna and her legal team had apparently thought she would be welcomed into the Kardashian clan with open arms.
While the celeb news world was dominated by rumors of Kim K's plans to divorce Kanye -- which have since been falsified -- there was more drama brewing between the Kardashians and a woman who is hoping to become one of them. Blac Chyna recently had Rob Kardashian's first child, Dream Kardashian, and she is set to wed big Rob, which she hopes will provide her with the name of Angela Renee Kardashian. She has already attempted to trademark the name, which she believes will be essential to protecting her livelihood as a social media celebrity. The three Kardashian sisters, however, are prepared to go to war in an effort to prevent said trademark.
If Chyna is able to get her trademark, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney reportedly believe that they will "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill." In other words, the upstanding Kardashian brand they have worked so hard to build will be tarnished if Chyna gets to profit off of the family name. Legal documents have been filed in an effort to thwart Chyna's efforts to become a trademark-certified Kardashian.
“Everything has been fantastic between her and the family to the best of my knowledge, so this is a shock," Chyna's lawyer, Walter Mosley, told People today. "Thus, I'm under the belief that it's a misunderstanding."
He went on to reveal that he had not foreseen any opposition, and that Angela Renee Kardashian's trademark had apparently been "published" before representatives of the Kardashian sisters filed a lawsuit to void her ownership of the name. As he had thought all was well between Chyna and her future in-laws, he was surprised to find out just how adamantly the three sisters opposed her trademarking their name; "In the complaint they are not short or shy as to how they feel about Angela using the trademark."
Mosely claims he has filed many trademarks on behalf of Blac Chyna, and this is the first one to ever meet any resistance. "There's a softer side of this where Angela has to have a conversation with her family," he said. "But until I hear otherwise, I'm just going to proceed as I normally would with a lawsuit. I have 40 days to respond."
