Kim Kardashian and his family were once again represented in courtroom sketches on Wednesday, as they continued to defend themselves in the $108 million defamation lawsuit brought against them by blac-chyna.
Initial artwork of Kim, Khloe, Kylie Jenner and mom kris jenner went viral earlier this week, with fans thrilled at how unrecognizable the stars were, with some joking that the artist must ‘hate’ them.
In new sketches released Wednesday, the four members of the family, who are all named defendants in the case, were seen in the Los Angeles courtroom.

Kim wore a tan pantsuit, Khloe a beige dress and long coat, with gray suede boots, and Kylie a black pantsuit, while her mom Kris wore a gray pantsuit.
The four watched intently as Chyna, dressed in a black jacket with brass buttons and wide lapels, responded to what is expected to be five hours of cross-examination from her attorney Lynne Ciani and another five hours of cross-examination from the Kardashians’ attorney, Michael Rhodes.
Chyna is seeking $108 million in damages, accusing the Kardashians of defamation and ‘intentional interference with the contract’ that led to Rob and Chyna being canceled.

Chyna, 33, whose real name is Angela White, was on the witness stand for the lawsuit resulting from her $108 million lawsuit that claimed America’s most famous reality TV family had deliberately fired Rob and Chyna.
He was speaking on the third day of the trial in Los Angeles.
Jurors were told on Tuesday that a friend who had been FaceTiming Rob Kardashian saw Chyna point a gun at his head.

The Kardashians’ attorney, Michael Rhodes, was making his opening statement, which began by asking each of his four Kardashian clients to stand as he individually presented them to the jury.
He first mentioned Kris Jenner, whom Rhodes described as the family’s “mother and matriarch” and the “mother who manages the vast empire this family has built from scratch.”
Of Kim Kardashian he said that she is “one of the most famous people in the world, an influencer” as well as a mother of four children.

Khloe Kardashian is a “successful entrepreneur and businesswoman in her own right,” Rhodes said.
And Kylie Jenner, she added, is also an “accomplished businesswoman” with more than 300 million followers on Instagram.
“The evidence will show that Miss White wanted something: She wanted to be one of them (the Kardashians),” said Rhodes, who declined to call reality star Blac Chyna because “that’s a stage name and this is not a stage name.” , this is a courtroom.’
In the defamation part of Chyna’s lawsuit, Rhodes told the jury that the Kardashians “did not defame the plaintiff.”

The attorney said that during the Dec. 14 attack that Chyna denies, “there is no question that she had physical contact with Mr. Kardashian” and also put a phone cord around his neck and pulled.
Rhodes said Chyna was ‘yelling and screaming’, broke a TV and Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble had to physically come between the couple and tell Rob to ‘get my car keys and get out of here’.
The next day, she added, Chyna took her son and left and never lived with Rob again.
Chinese team? However, other fans noted that the courtroom cartoonist may have been a fan of Blac Chyna, as the illustration of him was much more complimentary.
Kris and her daughters found out about the fight between Chyna and Rob and Rhodes added: “They were very upset.” That’s not the kind of thing they want to represent in the shows they produce…’
He told the court that it wasn’t a TV or Rob’s head that was broken on fight night: “What was broken on December 14 was their relationship.”
‘The relationship was over. There is no Rob and Chyna show if there is no Rob and Chyna.
Conversation starter: The sketches, which are the work of illustrator Mona Shafer Edwards, sparked a lively debate on social media.

Rhodes noted that Chyna is “out of contract” with the Kardashians. ‘Her contracts of hers are all with E!.’
But as paid executive producers of Rob and Chyna, Kris and their daughters, canceling the show cost them money, too.
“They were acting against their own financial interests to protect someone they love (Rob),” Rhodes said.
He added that E! paid Chyna a $100,000 cancellation fee when Rob and Chyna’s first season ended and an additional $370,000 to shoot more footage that could be used if Rob and Chyna were to eventually return for a second season. If that didn’t happen, the footage could be used in episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Kim, Kylie Jenner, Khloe and their mother, family matriarch Kris Jenner, are all accused in the case.
