Blac Chyna’s Best Friend Accused Of Striking Two Women In Reality Star’s Car
You’ll never hear what happened in a hit-and-run case involving Blac Chyna if the reality star has her way.
Chyna has argued in court papers for a gag order in her upcoming civil negligence trial, saying that media coverage could negatively affect the outcome of the case.
A judge will decide whether to grant Chyna’s – real name Angela Renee White – motion to close the upcoming trial to the public – especially the press. She asked the judge to issue a protective order around the case to seal records and hearings, arguing that the publicity around the case created a “clear and present danger of a serious and imminent threat to the administration of justice,” according to court papers.
Chyna was named as a defendant in a lawsuit accusing her of negligence after her friend and assistant, Charmeika “Paige” Addison allegedly borrowed her car and hit two women before fleeing the scene two years ago.
The alleged victims, Zohar Misrahi and Michaela Masica, said Paige struck them in Chyna’s car, causing serious injuries, and took off before cops arrived. They want money damages from Paige and Chyna, claiming that it was the pair’s carelessness that caused them to get hurt in the car accident.
However, Paige and Chyna fired back at the case, denying every allegation and adding that the alleged victims’ injuries were caused by their own careless driving. Chyna and Paige said the women’s injuries occurred because of others actions and was not their problem.
Misrahi and Masica, the alleged victims, said in court papers that they opposed Chyna’s gag order motion. They said the move violated their first amendment rights and that there was no evidence that media coverage would impact the case.
A judge is set to rule on the issue next month. The case is scheduled to head to trial June 4, 2018.
