As it turns out, the Kardashians are more than happy to welcome Blac Chyna into the family. After the lawyers representing the companies of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian issued an opposition to Blac Chyna trademarking the name "Angela Kardashian" earlier this week, the three sisters and momager Kris Jenner are reportedly smoothing things over and saying that the legal team messed up.
Apparently, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian all reached out to Blac Chyna after hearing about the legal drama to assure her that their lawyers were just following procedure, and Kris Jenner guaranteed Chyna that there's no ill will between the family and her, TMZ reports. Reportedly, the Kardashian sisters said that their legal teams were simply following their standard operations when filing their opposition, and the sisters themselves weren't aware of what had happened.
Judging from how famous the Kardashian name is in pop culture, I'm guessing that the family's lawyers are basically just filing trademark and copywrite infringement suits left and right every day, and perhaps didn't recognize that one of the petitions was coming from Rob Kardashian's fiancé. They also might not have recognized the name Angela White, which is Blac Chyna's legal name.
The Kardashians' apologetic response confirms the suspicions of Blac Chyna's lawyer, who recently said that he was shocked to receive the opposition and was sure it was a mistake. The lawyer said that it was the first time he's ever received an opposition in his years of filing similar petitions on behalf of Chyna, and pointed out that although Angela Kardashian is not Chyna's legal name yet, she still uses it as a stage name and it will become her legal name soon, once she marries her fiancé Rob Kardashian. Chyna and Kardashian announced their engagement in April after a couple months of dating at the start of 2016. The couple went on to star in a reality miniseries documenting Chyna's pregnancy, and one month ago, Chyna gave birth to their daughter Dream Kardashian. Though they've been engaged for over half a year, the couple still hasn't announced a date for their wedding, so nobody knows yet when Blac Chyna will legally become Angela Kardashian.
Blac Chyna first filed her petition to trademark "Angela Kardashian" for entertainment and social media purposes back in May. Presumably, the Kardashian sisters will retract their oppositions to the petition and the trademarking process will continue unimpeded.
Hopefully with all the messy legal drama behind them, Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna can go back to being friends who take pole dancing classes together like they did on that one episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Remember those good 'ole days?
