Let’s hope Blac Chyna’s club appearance fees increase because she is set to face another lawsuit.
According to Page Six, the family of Lorena Hernandez — Chyna’s assistant — will take legal action against the 30-year-old after they say Chyna abused Hernandez before her untimely death. They also allege Chyna failed to provide worker’s compensation.
Back in January, Hernandez suffered a seizure while working at Lashed — a salon owned by Chyna — and has been hospitalized ever since. Hernandez was declared brain dead on Wednesday, and in the coming days her family will remove her from life support and donate her organs.
After the medical scare, Chyna’s sole focus was protecting herself, claims a source familiar with the Hernandez family.
“[Chyna] has never ever been [to the hospital],” the source said. “She was only there the first day when they found her at Lashed, but the only reason she came to the hospital was to tell the doctors and everyone not to give out any information to anybody. When I got there they didn’t even want to give me information because she gave them the order not to say anything. After that she never came back.”
The source added that Chyna has abandoned Hernandez during this trying time, which would dispute the statement Chyna released shortly after the incident. In the statement, Chyna, whose given name is Angela Renee White, stated she was caring for Hernandez’s children.
“Remember when the news broke and she said she was helping [Hernandez] and she was helping the kids and everything? She never did,” the source said. “I mean all she pretty much did was spread the word and reach out to her baby daddies, so she felt like, “‘That’s how I helped.'”
The fathers — Tyga and Rob Kardashian — of Chyna’s children each donated $5,000 and $10,000, respectively to a GoFundMe campaign launched to offset medical costs and everyday spending.
Chyna is said to have contacted the family to prevent a legal battle, to no avail.
Chyna “did reach out to try to work something out, but the lawyers said not to go along with it and just to let them handle everything. So I guess she just got really upset and called and she was just being horrible,” the source said.
This will be one of several lawsuits involving Blac Chyna, including a complaint against the Kardashians.
