It was recently reported that Blac Chyna‘s goal of transitioning into Angela Renee Kardashian was being blocked by the legal teams of the late Robert Kardashian’s three daughters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe.
Well, only 24 hours after news of the legal block became known has Chyna’s lawyer Walter Mosley spoke with People and expressed his shock with the lawsuit.
“The Kardashians, like Angela and my other clients are very protective of our marks, I think for us this is going to be a clear case win, because it’s actually her name, it’s not a poaching. I would hope that this is just a junior lawyer’s error, who’s just responding to everything and not really looking at who it’s from or why it was filed. There’s a softer side of this where Angela has to have a conversation with her family. But until I hear otherwise, I’m just going to proceed as I normally would with a lawsuit. I have 40 days to respond,” Mosley tells PEOPLE of the suit.
“I have to respond to the notice of opposition, so the way this works is we filed the mark, it was initially unopposed, it was published and then the representatives of the sisters’ companies filed an opposition to Angela owning her name. Sure, it’s not her legal name now, but it is certainly her stage name — her next stage name and her legal name once the wedding is done. In the complaint they are not short or shy as to how they feel about Angela using the trademark. I’m hoping that it’s just a big misunderstanding but I’m just proceeding as if it’s not and am going to do the best work I can for my client,” Mosley says.
It sounds like there will be some interesting family business talk between Chyna and her in-laws-to-be during Christmas dinner this year…….
