On the second day of the trial, the producer of 2016 reality series Rob & Chyna, Jeff Jenkins testified in court that there was no second season for the series.
Jenkins, who is the former co-president of Bunim-Murray and executive producer of the spin-off show claimed in court Friday that the couple never secured a second season for the series.
During his testimony, Jenkins revealed that networks including BET, VH1, Lifetime and MTV were uninterested in picking up a show featuring Blac Chyna alone. He also claimed that he wouldn’t back a second season due to the instability of Rob and Chyna’s relationship.
“I would not pick up this show,” he admitted via Zoom from his home in San Pedro, Calif. “There was no more Rob and Chyna.”
Jenkins recalled that he greenlit the first season of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians series’ spin-off after meeting Chyna and Rob Kardashian, who appeared to be very happy in their relationship.
“That was really exciting,” Jenkins said. “That was the first and the last time I saw the couple happy.”
“She was furious with him… and he was furious with her. It was very negative. It was very difficult to shoot a show ‘Rob & Chyna In Love’ when they were not even talking to each other,” he claimed.
Earlier in the day, Kris Jenner testified that she “did not have any influence” over E!’s decision to drop the second season of Rob & Chyna.
The next hearing of the trial will be held on Monday.
