Blac Chyna Attempted To Trademark ‘Kardashian’ Name & Was Rejected, Now Kardashians Have Trademarks In Her Daughter’s Name

Blac Chyna and The Kardashian’s History Dates Back To Her Relationship With Tyga

The Kardashians have a long history with social media star Blac Chyna. They began as friends way back when Kanye first joined the Kardashian tribe. He was good friends with Tyga, who was dating Blac Chyna. Chyna and Tyga share a son together, King Cairo. She quickly forged a friendship with Kim and Khloe in 2013 and could be spotted in several pictures with them on socials.  Unfortunately, things went south when Tyga began dating the youngest Kardashian, Kylie Jenner. The pair became a power couple, and Chyna was quickly pushed out of the family circle. Chyna tried to expose Tyga at one point after he’d sent her text messages claiming to miss his family and wanting to get back. Tyga claims the messages were fake. She also openly mocked Kyle online with a video donning fake lips. 

Chyna later swooped in on Kardashian brother Rob in 2016. The pair dated and eventually had a daughter together, Dream. They documented their union with E! spin-off Rob & Chyna. Everyone believed the new baby would bring peace between the Kardashians and Black Chyna, but she and Rob would eventually split, and all the drama would kick off again. 

Blac Chyna Continues To Lose To The Kardashian- Jenner Family

Blac Chyna has been in court fighting against the Kardashian-Jenner tribe. She sued the reality stars for defamation back in 2017 after speculating that the sisters got her show Rob & Chyna canceled and were trying to ruin her career. The family fired back, saying that Chyna is the one who has been in the wrong, frequently threatening to take Rob Kardashian and Kylie Jenner’s lives. The family also alleges that Chyna attacked Rob while pregnant in December of 2016. However, Chyna claims that her actions were done “jokingly.”  Rob and Blac Chyna are still in court in connection to “revenge porn” Rob posted online around the time of their split. Once she lost, Chyna tried to claim the judge was biased against her but did not file the appropriate paperwork to get a different judge appointed to her case while it was still open. 

Kardashians’ History Of Trademarking Baby Names

Blac Chyna also lost big when she attempted to trademark her daughter Dream Kardashian’s name. However, it appears that a year after filing her lawsuit against the family, the Kardashians went ahead and issued five trademarks for Dream Kardashian, beating Chyna to the punch. These trademarks cover everything from clothing to skincare to toys. The tot is even trademarked for “entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a celebrity.” Rob Kardashian signed off on these as her parent and gave his family permission to put them all in, listing Rob as CEO and President of the trademarks. 

The Kardashians have a history of this and even some drama in the past. Kim famously tried to trademark “Kimono” when initially branding her shapewear line but got negative feedback from those who felt it was appropriation. She would eventually move on with Skims instead.  Kylie Jenner ran into some issues trying to Trademark the name Kylie after it was revealed that Australian Pop star Kylie Minogue already had the rights to the name. They had a lengthy battle that ended in Minogue’s favor due to her having a longer career in the public and already owning Kylie branded products as well as the website kylie.com.  According to Forbes, “Jana Gouchev, a Manhattan-based trademark attorney, said the Kardashians have a large number of trademarks in order to cover all potential business ventures.”

The trademarks are typically general ones since, a lot of times the family does not know what kind of businesses they might get involved in. They have historically taken them out for ever new addition to the family, and have even trademarked their married names like Kim Kardashian-West or Khloe Kardashian-Odom.

Blac Chyna Attempted to Trademark Her Kardashian Name In 2017

When she was engaged to Rob Kardashian, Chyna had plans to trademark her own name. Her real name, Angela White, was set to become Angela Kardashian. She submitted the request in May of 2016 while still pregnant. Eldest sisters Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney filed to block this claim, sighting how it conflicted with their existing trademarks and branding. Chyna did not challenge their petition, so her request would ultimately be denied. The family also made sure that even if she and Rob did get back together, they could never trademark the name and filed documents to block her permanently.
