Kylie Jenner revealed in court on Monday how her ex-boyfriend, rapper Tyga, once showed her a six-inch long scar on his arm he said was inflicted by reality star Blac Chyna when she attacked him with a knife.
Chyna and Tyga were once engaged and share a 9-year-old son. But after they split, Kylie started dating the hip-hop star, who told her how Chyna had abused him during their relationship.
‘When we were dating he expressed to me his troubles with Chyna,’ the 24 year-old told jurors at Los Angeles Superior Court. ‘He showed me his arm and said Chyna had slashed him with a knife.
‘He expressed to me her abuse of alcohol and drugs. She may have been high or intoxicated the night she slashed him.’
Kylie – wearing a dark-brown satin pant suit and heavy black boots – said the scar Tyga showed her had healed and ‘maybe six inches long.’
After hearing that her brother, Rob, had started dating Chyna, Kylie told the court that she and Tyga went to visit Rob and warned him.
‘I was a little bit concerned from the things I had heard from Tyga,’ she said.

During cross-examination, Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, grilled Kylie about a previous deposition she had given in which she said that during her and Tyga’s warning visit to Rob, she had ‘wished him the best.’
‘How could you wish your brother the best when he was with a woman who allegedly slashed your boyfriend’s arm?’ asked Ciani.
‘I don’t recall actually saying that,’ Kylie replied.
Kylie – who said that Tyga had told her he never intended to marry Chyna – first met Chyna when they were on a walk with her sister Kim.
‘I would not have considered us friends,’ she told the court.
When Ciani asked her if she felt animosity toward Chyna, Kylie replied, ‘I don’t know.’
But when Ciani asked, ‘Do you feel anger toward Chyna?’ she answered, ‘Probably, after I heard about the attack on my brother.
The revelations come as Chyna’s $108 million defamation suit entered its second week on Monday.
She is suing the entire Kardashian clan for defamation, claiming they intentionally interfered with her contract on the Keeping up with the Kardashians spin-off Rob and Chyna.
Kim, 41, Khloe Kardashian, 37, Kylie, and their mother, family matriarch Kris Jenner, 66, are all named defendants in the suit.

Also on Monday, Chyna’s lawyers sought to find out just how profitable her show with Rob Kardashian was.
Her attorneys filed a subpoena seeking for the E! network to reveal how much it made in profits from Rob and Chyna during it’s seven-episode run in 2016.
Ciani, maintained that the profits E! made from the show are vital to her claim for damages against the Kardashians, but an attorney for E! countered, telling Judge Gregory Alarcon that the profit amount is a ‘privileged trade secret’ that should not be revealed.
The judge said he will issue a ruling on the subpoena later.
Meanwhile, Ciani called E! Vice President Demondre Edwards to the stand on Monday to testify about the talent agreement Chyna signed for season one of Rob and Chyna and an amendment to that agreement which would pay her a $100,000 ‘kill fee’ if E! did not pick up its option for a second season.
Ciani argued that E! had ‘green-lit’ the second season, meaning it would be made. But Edwards told the court today that he had not heard the second season was greenlit and he had negotiated the $100G ‘kill fee’ deal with Chyna’s attorney, Walter Mosley, who told him Chyna had agreed to it.
Chyna has testified that she was paid the $100,000 but she didn’t realize it was a ‘kill fee’ which meant the second season was dead because E! did not pick up the option.
Less than a week after Chyna and Rob Kardashian’s big December 2016 bust up in which she was accused of pulling a gun on him, Rob’s sisters Kylie and Khloe sent emails to E! executive Jeff Olde, urging him to scrap any plans for a season two of Rob and Chyna, the court heard.

Olde – VP of development and programing for the network – acknowledge receiving Kylie’s email in which she wrote, ‘I feel strongly about canceling Season two of Rob and Chyna. At the time of the incident, Kylie Jenner 17 years old.
‘The show is giving this toxic woman money and exposure….
’She will proceed with using and abusing my brother.’
But Olde denied that the Kardashian family emails were the reason Rob and Chyna 2 was scrapped. He was quoted as saying, ‘I don’t really take direction from 17-year-olds.’
Instead, he said the reason the second season did not go forward was because ‘Our two co-stars were no longer speaking to each other. They were no longer together. ‘
Olde was the E! executive who first recommended Rob and Chyna season one to to parent company NBCUniversal.
When the idea for the show was first pitched to him he, he told jurors, ‘I thought Chyna was great and I thought they had a great natural relationship.’
When the time came up to consider renewing the show for a second season, he added, ‘It looked good, knowing next season would would be planned around a wedding (of Rob and Chyna).’
But then came the couple’s big fight and said Olde, Rob and Chyna 2 ‘didn’t get to the stage’ of being greenlit, he said.
‘It was the Rob and Chyna show – and there was no more Rob and Chyna.’
