“I saw what I saw,” Corey Gamble said. “It would not say that, but it surely occurred.”
Kris Jenner, 66, is a defendant together with three of her daughters — Kim Kardashian, 41, Khloe Kardashian, 37, and Kylie Jenner, 24 — within the trial of the 33-year-old Chyna’s Los Angeles Superior Court docket defamation lawsuit.
Khloe and Kylie weren’t current in court docket Wednesday.
The criticism alleges the quartet lied when telling E! community executives that Chyna assaulted Rob Kardashian, now 34, as a result of they needed the community to cancel a second season of “Rob & Chyna,” which dealt with the ups and downs of the formerly engaged couple and had already begun filming before the plug was indeed pulled.
Chyna, whose real name is Angela Renee White, maintains the relationship ended in the summer of 2017, but the defendants say Chyna acknowledged in a written declaration that the two split in December 2016, meaning the second season could not have gone forward because of the breakup.
Gamble, 41, told jurors Tuesday that he received a call indicating Rob Kardashian’s number on the phone and that he could hear Chyna in the background shouting epithets at Rob.
Gamble said he drove the short distance to the home, which was provided to the former couple rent free by then-teen Kylie Jenner.
When he arrived at about 7 a.m. Chyna was standing about eight feet away from Rob with a metal rod that she dropped when she saw that he arrived, but Chyna then began whipping the phone cord at Rob, Gamble testified Tuesday.
Chyna then jumped on Rob’s back and punched him on the back of his head, Gamble testified Tuesday.
Questioned by Kardashian/Jenner attorney Michael Rhodes, Gamble said he did not remember every precise detail of what he did on a day more than five years ago.
“Did Ms. White beat the (epithet) out of Rob Kardashian?” Rhodes requested.
“Yes,” Gamble replied.
Chyna maintains she did nothing more that night than damage a television that belonged to Kylie Jenner and two gingerbread house decorations.
In February 2020, Judge Randolph Hammock severed from the current suit Chyna’s revenge porn claim against Rob Kardashian and directed that it be tried separately. The claim involves what Chyna’s court papers call “humiliating and degrading” photographs that Rob Kardashian allegedly posted of Chyna in July 2017. A separate jury will hear that case after the conclusion of the present proceedings.
The present trial is being presided over by Decide Gregory Alarcon.
