Rob Kardashian Reportedly Suing Blac Chyna For Allegedly Strangling Him With An iPhone Charger

Damn, Chyna!

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian may have ended their romance months ago, but apparently their messy relationship isn’t over yet. According to a new report, Rob is suing Chyna for allegedly trying to strangle him with an iPhone charger in Dec. 2016. He also alleges that the mother of his daughter was abusing significant amounts of drugs and alcohol, Page Six reports.

Kardashian is reportedly seeking compensation for “damages” in the lawsuit, according to Page Six. The only son of the Kardashian family alleges that on the night of Dec. 14, 2016, his ex-fiancée began playing his gun after an altercation, “unaware if the gun was loaded of if the safety was on.” And at one point, she allegedly point the weapon at him, Page Six reports.

Later that night, things got worse, when Blac allegedly lunged at him with a phone charging cord in hand to strangle him. Chyna was reportedly unsuccessful, as Kardashian was able to escape her grasp. But the social media vixen allegedly began striking him in the face instead. Rob reportedly suffered from injuries to the neck and head, which he reportedly documented on social media, according to reports. Chyna also allegedly trashed the home Rob was renting, which resulted in $100,000 in damages.

Despite various reports, Blac Chyna’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, told Page Six that they have “not received such lawsuit” at this time.

Earlier this month, Chyna was awarded $20,000 a month for child support for their daughter Dream Kardashian. The news followed several months after the couple made headlines when Kardashian exposed nude photos and videos of his ex online.

Jamie Foxx Recalls Convincing Idris Elba To Decline 'Django Unchained' Role

Jamie Foxx is a determined man. During a recent talk at the Toronto International Film Festival alongside Michael B. Jordan, Foxx revealed he did everything in his power to land the role of Django in Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 Django Unchained. When he received word that Idris Elba was one of the actors considered for the role, he made it a point to tell him he should look the other way.

According to Foxx, his management informed him that he wasn’t on the short list of actors that were considered for the film. At the time, Elba had all eyes on him. When Foxx randomly bumped into Elba, he brought up the topic of Django Unchained and told him he was too good looking for the character

"Your beautiful black a** riding up on a horse, there’s going to be some problems for everyone," he said.

Ultimately, the decision was made to nix Elba from the role because Tarantino thought it wouldn’t make sense to cast a British actor for an American story.

"Yeah, Idris is British and this is an American story," Tarantino told The Sun. "I think a problem with a lot of movies that deal with this issue is they cast British actors to play the Southerners and it goes a long way to distancing the movie. They put on their gargoyle masks and they do their accents and you are not telling an American story anymore."

In a 2012 interview with VIBE, Kerry Washington discussed the turbulent history Foxx helped bring to life about slavery in the film. “This is not a doc. This is a Quentin Tarantino film," Washington said. "But I remember there was this one moment in the script where Jamie's character was put in an awful crazy medieval metal mask. I said, ‘'That's some sick thing Quentin thought up.'"

“And when I went to the production office to meet about my wardrobe, I saw into the research office,” she continued. “Twenty photos of real masks like that. It made me sad. I realized as much as my degrees and everything I've read on slave narratives [should have informed me], I didn't even know that they wore masks like that, that people did that to us. It took a Tarantino movie for me to know that that's not some crazy thing out of his imagination. That's how it went down.”

Foxx and Jordan star in Just Mercy, a film about civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) who's on a quest to release an inmate on death row. The movie debuts on Dec. 25.
