“And we’re here tonight to celebrate,” Jenner concluded.

Just hours before the Met Gala, the Los Angeles jury found that none of the members of the Kardashian-Jenner family defamed Chyna, nor interfered with her contract by the E! network to cancel her reality show “Rob & Chyna”.

Following the news on Monday, Michael Rhodes and Michelle Doolin, the famous family’s trial attorney, made a statement.

“On behalf of Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kylie, I would like to express our appreciation to the jury,” the statement reads from Fox News Digital.

Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian were involved in the lawsuit and have not yet spoken publicly about the ruling. Since the Met Gala took place in New York City, no members of the Kardashian-Jenner family attended the ruling.

However, Chyna was in court for the verdict. She had no visible reaction.

After about 10 hours of deliberation, the judges found on the long jury form that the Kardashians often acted in bad faith on the issues raised in the case, but that it had no substantial effect on Chyna’s contract or the fate of the show.

“When they killed my #1 hit show in January 2017, it hurt not only me financially and emotionally, but my beautiful KIDS as well,” the statement read.

“I’m taking them to court to stand up for my legal rights and to set an example to my children that ‘what’s right is right, what’s wrong is wrong,'” she continued. “And what they did was so wrong. I’m so grateful that a jury will finally listen to what really happened behind closed doors – the lies that were told and the damage that was done.”
