THE Kardashians have been receiving special treatment in court during the family’s trial against their nemesis Blac Chyna, The Sun can exclusively report.
Court insiders said that Kris Jenner and her daughters Kim, Khloe and Kylie have been given access to private rooms at the courthouse, and use of a staff-only exit to avoid being seen.They are being accompanied by their bodyguards as well as police officers[/caption] Blac Chyna has been seen walking the hallways and has been photographed outside[/caption]
The Kardashians have been battling Chyna in a blockbuster trial since last week, with Rob’s baby mama accusing the family of destroying her reality TV career in a bombshell $100million lawsuit.
She has claimed Kris, Khloe, Kim and Kylie fought to get the Rob & Chyna spinoff show canceled by the E! network, which they all deny, saying they only voiced their concerns about the couple’s “toxic” relationship.
Eyewitnesses in court told The Sun that the family appears to have been afforded privileges the average defendant does not receive, with some insiders insisting the measures are for their “safety.”
They said: “Kris, Khloe, Kim and Kylie have all been given special treatment during the trial to avoid them being approached by fans in the courthouse.

“Every day they arrive with two or three of their bodyguards and during each break and lunch they are escorted into a private room used mostly by officers from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
“You sometimes see their bodyguards in the cafeteria but you certainly don’t see the Kardashians lining up at lunch.”
The witness added: “At the end of each day they are ushered into another private room flanked by officers and their burly security team and head out of a secret exit used by employees to avoid being photographed.”
Another source revealed they do not park all day in the staff-only parking lot, but instead get picked up and dropped off by their drivers who are given special access.

The Sun understands the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Downtown LA has given celebrities VIP treatment in the past amid fears for their safety in the packed building.
There are signs banning photography throughout the courthouse, but it hasn’t stopped some from trying to snatch pics of the stars.
The eyewitness also claims Chyna has been allowed to use a separate smaller private room during breaks and lunch, but she does not bring security with her.
“She walks the halls with a male companion who often carries her handbag,” the source said. “And she has used the public entrance and exit, and has often been photographed outside.”
The Sun has contacted a rep for The Kardashians for comment.
Kim and her family are currently battling Chyna in court in a controversial lawsuit over her “ruined” TV career.
Chyna – who shares daughter Dream, 5, with Rob – is claiming the group was responsible for her show Rob & Chyna getting canceled.
REALITY TV CAREER
Jury selection began last Monday and the trial is expected to last several days, with the origins of the lawsuit stretching back to 2017.
She and Rob starred in the Keeping Up With The Kardashians spin-off Rob & Chyna for one season in 2016, before their relationship and hers with the entire family soured.
The second season was allegedly being shot when the two split after a reportedly violent argument, but was scrapped and never aired on the network.
Producers have given witness testimony claiming it was one of the most successful shows on the network, and a second season was initially greenly and had financial backing, but the creative process never began due to the couple’s breakup.
Throughout the trial, The Sun has reported a number of bombshell claims, including Chyna allegedly holding a gun to Rob’s head and trying to strangle him with a phone cord, which she denies.
On Thursday, emails and texts were read out from Khloe, Kim and Kylie, in which they allegedly demanded Rob & Chyna be axed, and threatened to quit their own show.
In an email to producers, Khloe wrote: “We are even considering not moving forward with our show if theirs continues, that’s how strongly we feel this is damaging to our family.”
Khloe did not deny sending the email as she was questioned by Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani.
The Good American founder told the court today she just “didn’t want to move forward with any such toxicity” and said she was talking about Rob and Chyna’s tumultuous relationship, not necessarily their show.
Further texts from Kim Kardashian to a producer showed she did not want Chyna on their reality show, despite signing a deal to appear in episodes with Rob.
Kim raged: “I’m going to officially take a break because I don’t want to do this anymore because this is so confusing,
“This is just not happening, I can’t believe no one listens to us, no one respects us. It’s just not happening.”
Kim allegedly went on: “Chyna can never be on her show.”

But in court, she insisted that her text messages are often voice-dictated, and she meant “our show,” Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The court heard how Rob was reportedly “crying all day,” as he felt Chyna only showed up to see the family because she wanted to film.The family has been using a private room during breaks and lunch[/caption] They have been using the staff-only underground parking, whereas Chyna is using the main court parking lot[/caption]
