As if the media storm following the tragic death of superstar athlete and cultural personality Kobe Bryant could not get more filled with information, it seems as though even Kylie Jenner isn’t immune from the fallout of the event.
After sharing a memorial post for the fallen athlete to her Instagram page, Blac Chyna, ex-girlfriend of Jenner’s half brother, Rob Kardashian, took to her legal representation to voice her disapproval of Jenner’s verbiage as well as taking her daughter, Dream, on an unsanctioned ride in the same helicopter Bryant died in.
After a messy break up between Chyna and Rob Kardashian, the pair have been in the news time and time again as they seemingly try to sort through the fallout of their tumultuous relationship, which seemingly also includes who calls the shots for daughter, Dream Kardashian.
Aside from disagreeing with her choice of words, Chyna’s main argument against Jenner was that she took young Dream on a ride in the same helicopter, manned by the same pilot, as the one that just went down in Calabasas killing Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven other passengers.
In a statement issued by her legal representation, as reported by People, “Chyna has become aware that Kylie Jenner is using the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant, his beautiful daughter, and seven other precious souls to profess her ‘distress’ that she and Dream had ridden on the same helicopter with the same pilot prior to Sunday’s horrific crash.”
The statement continued with, “What Kylie failed to disclose was that Chyna never gave Kylie permission to take her precious daughter Dream on a helicopter ride and that Chyna never would have given Kylie that permission.”
“No parents should find out after-the-fact that their child has participated in a dangerous activity without their permission. Chyna voiced her strong objections to Rob and insisted that it never happen again,” the legal statement concluded.
Jenner has not issued a response statement in any way to Chyna and her lawyer’s accusations, but it would not be surprising if she ignored it entirely, given the murky legal waters that would surround any claim of wrongdoing Chyna attempts to pursue in regards to this event.
Jenner has since slightly changed the caption of her memorial post for Bryant, but aside from that has not addressed the issue directly whatsoever.
The fatal crash that took the lives of the basketball star and eight others occurred on Sunday, January 26, 2020. An outpouring of condolences and words of strength in this rough time have come from significant faces in every aspect of pop culture, all of which have claimed deep personal effects caused by the tragic loss of one of sport’s biggest names.
