This is pretty messy so we’ll try to explain it as painlessly and succinctly as possible…
Model/reality star/make-up influencer Blac Chyna was just slapped with a $2 million lawsuit by her former BFF after he says she outed him as gay.
In the lawsuit, Pilot Jones, whose real name is Justin C. Jones, alleges that after a photo of him and Blac Chyna kissing surfaced online, she and her then-fiance? Rob Kardashian accused him of selling the photo to the tabloids. In retaliation, Blac Chyna took to Instagram to out Jones as gay then published his private phone number.
Jones, who denies ever leaking the photo, says that when Blac Chyna gave our his private phone number he began receiving threatening messages. He also claims Blac Chyna ruined his life and nearly drove him to suicide. Now, he wants $2 million in damages.
Specifically, he wants $600k for lost earnings, $500k for emotional distress, $250K for the damage suffered by his family, another $250k for past and future medical expenses, and $7,200 for his rent.
But Blac Chyna tells a different story. She says never outed Jones and that everyone knew he was gay long before they ever met.
In court documents, she alleges: “I met the Plaintiff J.C. Jones in or around 2015. J.C. is also known in the industry and to the public as Pilot Jones. J.C. was introduced to me as a model and an actor from Glee.”
“J.C. and I spent a lot of time together enjoying each other’s company in a friendly/close relationship for not quite two years. We never had a sexual relationship and he was never my boyfriend.”
Blac Chyna added: “At all times during our friendship, J.C. was very open about his sexuality, that he was gay. I witnessed him kiss another man in front of other people on at least one occasion. I also saw him stick his back side in another man’s face at least one time.”
“I recall that his social media posts at the time did not hide the fact that he was gay. Based on everything I knew about J.C., I believed that he was an openly gay man and that his sexuality was well known.”
As for leaking his phone number, Blac Chyna blames that one her ex-fiance? who she says took her phone without her permission to send him threatening texts.
Blac Chyna is asking that the case be tossed out. A judge has yet to decide.
