Blac Chyna Attempts to Cash in on Kardashian Name, Gets Shut Down
It’s hard to imagine that anyone named Blac Chyna would feel the need to adopt a more attention-grabbing moniker, but it seems that the 28-year-old feels the combination of Donald Trump’s least favorite color and country has gotten stale.
Or at the very least, Ms. Chyna believes she could there’s a more lucrative surname for her, and she intends to seize it.
Unfortunately for Blac, the folks who were born with said name, aren’t eager to share it.
As you probably already know, Blac broke up with Rob Kardashian again recently, and this time, it looks like the separation will stick.
But that doesn’t mean she’s given up on the idea of cashing in on Rob’s name.
Despite the fact that the two of them never got married or even set a date to do so, Blac took action toward legally changing her name to Angela Kardashian last year.
Now that she’s definitely not marrying Rob, Blac probably won’t be changing her name to Kardashian, but just to be safe, Kim and company have taken steps to prevent her branding herself as a member of the Kard clan.
TMZ is reporting that the Kardashians have asked a judge to block Blac from adopting the Kardashian name and using it license products.
The request was granted, which means Blac won’t be calling herself a Kardashian any time soon.
It makes sense for the sisters to be protective of the name that’s such a huge part of their identities, but there are those who feel that taking legal action was petty and unnecessary.
Not surprisingly, Blac’s mother, Tokyo Toni (whose own name should ALWAYS be followed by “laughing to the point of tears” emoji) is one of those people:
“Blacchyna has my support 110% no matter what! You just can’t stop what God has plans for,” Toni wrote on Instagram.
“Ps People need to relax it’s enough shine money Tv airtime play selfie sticks and camera footage for everyone! Sharing is caring but hold up didn’t they watch Mr. Rogers neighborhood! She grown but I am still her momma and I will go all the way in for mine.”
Yeah, we’re not totally sure what she’s saying, but it seems like she’s pissed.
We’re assuming Tokyo was gonna change her name too, and now she’s got a whole bunch of worthless monogrammed towels laying around.
