Rob Kardashian said he would be "focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Blac Chyna" after filing to dismiss a lawsuit against his ex.

Rob Kardashian is bettering his co-parenting relationship with ex Blac Chyna after dismissing his lawsuit against her.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star filed to dismiss his assault lawsuit against Dream Kardashian's mom without prejudice. A Los Angeles judge ultimately approved the motion.

"My love for Dream far outweighs my desire to proceed with my claims against her mother in a public trial," Kardashian said in a statement to E! News. "Now that the court has ruled that there is sufficient evidence to warrant a jury trial on my claim for assault, for our daughter's sake, I am dismissing the action and focusing on my co-parenting relationship with Chyna."

However, the 33-year-old model's attorney, Lynne Ciani, later alleged that Kardashian had other motives for dismissing the case.

"Chyna was finally about to have her day in court at a Feb. 23 jury trial in Los Angeles Superior Court where she was prepared to prove with evidence that Rob's claim that she physically attacked and assaulted him was a malicious lie," Ciani said in a statement.
"Instead, Rob dropped his case on the eve of trial, not because he suddenly wanted to drop the case 'for the sake of his daughter,' but because he knew his assault and battery accusations against Chyna were false."

The former couple went public with their relationship in January 2016, welcoming their daughter in November of that same year. While the exes briefly split in December 2016, the Rob & Chyna alums reconciled and ultimately called it quits in the summer of 2017. The duo has been battling for custody of Dream ever since, reaching a new agreement in December 2020.
