Blac Chyna has found herself in the news a lot lately. But even before her latest claim to fame, she was making a name for herself.
From clothing to cosmetics, she actually does have more than a bit of money on her own thanks to her savvy business moves. Also, Blac Chyna has two lovely children — a son named King Cairo with rapper Tyga, and a daughter named Dream with Rob Kardashian. So, claims that she’s suing the Kardashian-Jenner clan because she doesn’t have money of her own falls more than a little flat, to say the least.
However, the woman born Angela White claims she has been sabotaged by the omnipresent entertainment family. She claims that her hit reality show with Rob Kardashian was pulled from E! at their behest — and this is just the first of many claims she’s made against the family.
Her lawyer, Lynne Ciani, told Us Weekly says that Blac Chyna isn’t just suing for the loss of her hit reality show, “Rob & Chyna.”
“Blac Chyna will seek millions in compensatory and punitive damages from Kris [Jenner], Kim [Kardashian], Khloé [Kardashian], and Kylie [Jenner] for defamation, intentional interference with contract, and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage,” Ciani said in a statement to Us Weekly. “Chyna is beyond thrilled that she will have her day in court.”
But whether or not she’s successful in court, Blac Chyna still has more than a few ventures to fall back on. Plus, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Blac Chyna has a net worth of $10 million.
Here, then, are ten things we know about her business moves.
Editorial note: The net worth listed in this piece is a speculative estimate drawn from a variety of online sources.
In The Beginning
It’s not about where you came from — it’s about where you’re going. And it’s no secret that Blac Chyna’s origin story begins in Miami, FL, where she worked as a dancer at King of Diamonds.
Incidentally, King of Diamonds went out of business in 2018. According to OK! Magazine, the place was shut down when the owners failed to make their rent payments.
Blac Chyna was able to break out of the nightlife and into the mainstream when Tyga recorded “Rack City” — his biggest hit to date — at the club, and featured her in the video.
Blac Chyna’s biggest success post-King of Diamonds has come from her television career. According to her IMDb page, she’s appeared in a wide variety of reality shows, including “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” But she’s also appeared in a number of professional productions as an actress, including “The Black Hamptons,” where she plays “Karrin.” Her biggest success to date, however, is her reality show “The Real Blac Chyna” on The Zeus Network.
Blac Chyna opened up a beauty salon called Lashed By Blac Chyna on the trendy Ventura Boulevard in the Encino district of Los Angeles.
Blac Chyna also expanded her Lashed by Blac Chyna beauty brand to include a line of cosmetics and swimwear.
Over the years, Blac Chyna has opened up a wide variety of online stores. In addition to her cosmetics line, she also has an online clothing store called Blac Chyna’s Closet.
