A Los Angeles ruled Friday to dismiss Blac Chyna’s defamation claim against Kim Kardashian.

Judge Gregory W. Alarcon said he reached the decision because no evidence was presented during the trial that Kardashian defamed the model and socialite, according to ABC News.

Kardashian still faces a contract interference claim, along with her famous family members, Kris Jenner, Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, who remain accused of defamation in the case.

Chyna, real name Angela Renee White, filed a $100 million lawsuit alleging members of the Kardashian-Jenner family made false statements that she physically assaulted former fiancé Rob Kardashian, leading to the cancellation of the couple’s E! reality series Rob & Chyna.

An attorney for Chyna told the court Thursday that his client lost money because of defamatory remarks by the Kardashian-Jenner clan. But a lawyer for the family countered that Chyna has made millions of dollars since the show last aired and that his clients did nothing wrong.

A day earlier, Rob took the stand and alleged Chyna was violent throughout their relationship, saying she pulled a gun on him, hit him with a metal rod, scratched him and used an iPhone cord to assault him.

Chyna told the court she was “just joking” when she pointed a gun at Rob’s head and wrapped a phone cord around his neck.

Rob & Chyna was canceled as the couple split amid a series of back-and-forth accusations. Rob said his then fiancée was cheating on him, and Chyna accused Rob of refusing to get help for his mental health issues. As the situation between them spiraled, Rob posted nude photos of Chyna on social media, and she took out a temporary restraining order against him in response.

Jeff Jenkins, former executive producer of the series, testified last week that BET, VH1, Lifetime and MTV all declined to pick up Rob & Chyna.

The jury in the defamation case is currently in deliberations.
