The Kardashians and Jenners were less than thrilled to hear about Kim Kardashian’s sex tape scandal during jury selection for the family’s pending trial against Blac Chyna.
Page Six was inside the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday when Kardashian-Jenner attorney Michael Rhodes asked a group of potential jurors if they had strong positive or negative feelings toward reality television.
One potential juror, a man who appeared to be in his 50s or 60s, claimed that he’d never watched “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” but noted, “I have watched [Kim] Kardashian’s sex tape, and I don’t think I can be impartial on this case.”
The response elicited a roar of laughter from the other potential jurors sitting in the audience. After that remark, Khloé Kardashian, 37, was seen fixing Kim’s long, dark locks – as if to comfort her sister.
Kris Jenner, 66, then shook her head after the same man reiterated to the judge that it would be difficult for him to serve as a juror because he would be “replaying that sex tape over and over again” in his head.
While Kim, 41, kept her gaze toward the front of the courtroom, Khloé looked visibly annoyed by the comments and carried that same facial expression with her as she, her sisters and Kris walked out of the courtroom for a break.
Khloé, Kim and Kris sat in the first row of the audience seats alongside Kylie Jenner, 24, and their beefed-up security team. Rob Kardashian, 35, was not present.
Chyna, 33, was also in the courtroom and sat in the front next to her lawyer, Lynne Ciani. Her mother, Tokyo Toni, also attended the meeting.
As of Monday, two groups of potential jurors – totaling 76 people – have been asked questions to determine eligibility in serving unbiasedly on the trial. Attorneys are planning to question a third panel of 24 potential jurors on Tuesday.
Several of the people questioned Monday said they knew about the Kardashians and Jenners because of their kids, who watch their shows and follow them on social media.
One juror admitted it would be difficult for him to be impartial during the trial because he doesn’t like reality TV and wished the show “wasn’t on any longer.”
E!’s “KUWTK” was on for 20 seasons from 2007 to 2021. During that time, several spin-off shows – including “Rob & Chyna” – debuted. Their latest series, “The Kardashians,” premiered just last week on Hulu.
In 2017, Chyna filed a lawsuit against the entire Kardashian-Jenner family – including Kourtney Kardashian, 43, and Kendall Jenner, 26 – over claims of assault, battery, domestic violence, defamation and interference with prospective economic relations.
The reality star, who shares 5-year-old daughter Dream with Rob, accused her ex of being an “abuser” and his family of being “media predators” who pulled the plug on the former couple’s show.
Chyna is seeking more than $40 million for loss of earning damages and more than $60 million in loss of future earning capacity damages.
The Kardashians and Jenners responded to Chyna’s claims with a lawsuit of their own, alleging the influencer violently attacked Rob.
