Blac Chyna involved the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services to investigate Rob Kardashian after their daughter, Dream Kardashian, suffered numerous “severe” burns while in his care.
Dream, 3, allegedly received a first-degree burn on her leg at the end of February, which prompted 31-year-old Chyna to seek out medical care for her daughter.
“Rob admitted that Dream had received the severe burn at his home and promised it would never happen again,” Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, said in a statement to Page Six. “Chyna immediately sought out and obtained appropriate medical treatment for Dream’s burn.”
The former couple’s daughter then allegedly sustained another burn on Saturday, March 21, after visiting with the reclusive reality star.
“… Chyna was shocked and extremely upset to discover that Dream had suffered a second severe burn very near the first burn on her leg,” the statement continued. “When Chyna reached out to Rob to find out what had happened to their daughter, Rob initially lied to Chyna and denied that Dream’s second burn happened at his home.”
According to Chyna’s attorney, 33-year-old Rob had his then-nanny text Chyna and admit that Dream had received the second burn from a lightbulb.
“Chyna again sought medical care for Dream and learned that the most recent burn on her leg was a second-degree burn,” the statement read, noting it was at that point that Chyna contacted DCFS and the police “to request an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn.”
The nanny in question since has been removed from her position at Rob’s house.
“While that development is a good start, Chyna will do everything within her power to ensure Dream’s safety during her visitations with her father,” continued Ciani’s statement, noting Chyna will now have to approve the new nanny Rob hires.
“Chyna still wants her daughter to be allowed visitations with her father. However, she also of course wants to ensure that Dream is never burned again (or injured by other neglectful conduct) while visiting her father,” the statement concluded.
In a follow-up statement, Ciani added, “It is very important for the American public to know that our brave law enforcement and DCFS personnel are still working to protect children during the coronavirus pandemic.”
In response, Rob’s attorney, Marty Singer, told Page Six that “the health, safety and well-being of Dream is and has always been Rob’s top priority” and explained that the former E! star’s current nanny of the last two years is leaving her job “at-will” because of her high-risk pregnancy and admitted that “unfortunately Dream has had two accidents in the last month while with this nanny.”
“Rob treated Dream appropriately and Chyna was informed. Following an investigation by the DCFS and the police in which Rob fully cooperated, he has every reason to believe that there will be no findings of any safety issues in his home,” Singer’s statement continued, noting that “third parties” have called on DCFS to visit the Lashed salon owner’s home over Dream.
“… Within the last month, Dream has arrived to Rob from Chyna with many unexplained injuries including rashes, cuts, bruises and a dislocated arm,” the statement continued. “Just this past Saturday while Chyna was claiming that she was so concerned about Dream’s safety, Chyna posted a video on Instagram depicting 3-year-old Dream on her 7-year-old brother’s back while he was jumping on a trampoline.”
Rob, via his attorney, chastised Chyna for wasting “valuable public resources” by calling first responders to his home in a “desperate attempt to smear Rob’s name” in their legal battle.
“In his ongoing lawsuit for full custody of Dream, Rob has had grave concerns about his daughter’s safety in Chyna’s care, and is grateful for the brave witnesses who have come forward to testify regarding the danger [with] which Chyna presents their daughter in her home,” the statement read.
Rob and Chyna were set to appear in court on March 24, but the date was postponed because of coronavirus.
“He eagerly awaits the opportunity to present the available evidence at the earliest opportunity,” the statement concluded, noting that neither parties have visitation: They’ve shared joint legal and physical custody of Dream since 2017.
This is the latest in Rob and Chyna’s heated custody battle. In late February, a judge blocked an emergency motion from Rob that would allow Chyna to see Dream only during weekend visits with a monitor present. He claimed his ex’s alleged drug use made her a risk to Dream.
