The drama continues. Blac Chyna claims that daughter Dream was injured while in Rob Kardashian’s care. The alleged injuries occurred while the 3-year-old was being looked after by a nanny who is no longer employed by Kardashian. The claim spurred an investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.
On Wednesday, Blac Chyna’s legal team claimed that dream had suffered “severe” burns on her legs on two separate occasions in February and March.
Blac Chyna Claims Daughter was Burned in Rob Kardashian’s Custody.
“In late February, Dream returned to Chyna’s home after visiting her father, Rob Kardashian, with a first degree burn on her leg. Rob admitted that Dream had received the severe burn at his home and promised it would never happen again. Chyna immediately sought out and obtained appropriate medical treatment for Dream’s burn,” the statement reads.
The statement said that Dream returned home after visiting Kardashian, 33, with another burn “very near the first burn on her leg.”
She Claims This Is the Second Time Dream Was Returned with Burns.
“When Chyna reached out to Rob to find out what had happened to their daughter, Rob initially lied to Chyna and denied that Dream’s second burn happened at his home,” Chyna’s attorney explained.

Rob Kardashian Said the Burns Came from a Hot Lightbulb.
“Rob then changed his story and had his nanny send a text message admitting that Dream received the second burn at Rob’s house from a hot lightbulb,” the statement alleged. “Chyna again sought medical care for Dream and learned that the most recent burn on her leg was a second degree burn.”
This is just the latest incident in an ugly custody battle between Kardashian and Chyna. Chyna said that she requested an investigation by police to look into “the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn.”
Chyna Contacted Authorities and DCFS Investigated.
“To protect her daughter’s physical and emotional well-being, Chyna contacted Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and the police to request an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn. Any responsible parent would do the same,” the statement went on.
“Chyna has since learned that the nanny who was allegedly watching Dream when she was burned both times will no longer work for Rob,” the statement said.
Chyna Wants to Approve Future Childcare for Dream While She’s Staying with Kardashian.
Chyna now wants the right to approve Kardashian’s next nanny to ensure her daughter’s safety.
“While that development is a good start, Chyna will do everything within her power to ensure Dream’s safety during her visitations with her father,” her attorney said. “At a minimum, this will include Chyna’s approval of Rob’s new nanny. Chyna still wants her daughter to be allowed visitations with her father.”
“However, she also of course wants to ensure that Dream is never burned again (or injured by other neglectful conduct) while visiting her father,” the statement said. “It is very important for the American public to know that our brave law enforcement and DCFS personnel are still working to protect children during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Following these claims, Kardashian’s attorney, Marty Singer, issued a statement to People.
Kardashian’s Attorney Claimed Dream is Well-Cared for and Chyna was Informed About the Injury.
“First and foremost, the health, safety and well-being of Dream is and has always been Rob’s top priority. Rob’s current nanny of the last two years has a high risk pregnancy and in the process of leaving his employment at will. Unfortunately Dream has had two accidents in the last month while with this nanny,” Singer wrote.
“Rob treated Dream appropriately and Chyna was informed. Following an investigation by the DCFS and the police, in which Rob fully cooperated, he has every reason to believe that there will be no findings of any safety issues in his home,” Kardashian’s attorney asserted.
The Attorney Notes That DCFS Have Been Contacted Multiple Times to Investigate Claims Made Against Chyna.
“It should be noted that on multiple occasions third parties have called on DCFS to visit Chyna’s home for treatment of Dream and within the last month, Dream has arrived to Rob from Chyna with many unexplained injuries including rashes, cuts, bruises and a dislocated arm,” Singer alleged. “Just this past Saturday while Chyna was claiming that she was so concerned about Dream’s safety, Chyna posted a video on Instagram depicting 3-year-old Dream on her 7-year-old brother’s back while he was jumping on a trampoline.”
Singer didn’t stop there and further explained the situation, “It is unfortunate that Chyna feels the need to publicly miscommunicate the situation and has once again wasted valuable public resources by calling first responders in a desperate attempt to smear Rob’s name in response to his ongoing lawsuit against her for full custody of their daughter.”
These Claims Are Tangled Up in the Custody Battle for Dream.
“In his ongoing lawsuit for full custody of Dream, Rob has had grave concerns about his daughter’s safety in Chyna’s care, and is grateful for the brave witnesses who have come forward to testify regarding the danger which Chyna presents their daughter in her home. His motion was set to be heard yesterday March 24 but will be moved due to the Coronavirus pandemic. He eagerly awaits the opportunity to present the available evidence at the earliest opportunity,” Singer concluded. “Neither Rob or Chyna have visitation as both parties have joint legal and physical custody as they have since 2017.”
Kardashian’s attorney is referring to the joint custody agreement the couple reached in September of 2017. It was preceded by their split in February of 2017 and separate lawsuits alleging abuse filed by both Chyna and Kardashian.
Just Last Month, Kardashian Filed an Emergency Motion for Full Custody of Dream.
The latest claims and investigation follow a Kardashian’s request last month to have Chyna stripped of primary custody of Dream. In the request, Kardashian claimed that Chyna was “out of control.” As part of the motion, Khloé Kardashian claimed that Dream was “decidedly more aggressive” after staying with Chyna. The request was denied and a judge rejected the emergency motion.
For Dream’s sake, we are glad that DCFS has been involved with the case to help ensure her safety. Splitting up is extremely difficult for many parents and we hope the matter is resolved soon.
