Kim Kardashian admitted in court on Tuesday that she refused to film episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians With Black Chyna after allegedly hitting her brother with a metal bar.

The E! Network, which aired both Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Rob and Chyna, paid Chyna $370,000 to direct four episodes of KUWTK after Rob and Chyna’s first season wrapped.

But that deal was signed without consulting the Kardashians, said Kim, who protested in an email that E! “Nobody listens to us… Nobody respects us,” the court heard.

She then reportedly wrote to her sisters, “Today with E! Executives after the fight in December 2016.

“I was upset that Rob was so emotional and upset,” the 41-year-old reality star told a Los Angeles Superior Court jury on Tuesday.

“I remember trying to be supportive of my brother — he was so emotional,” said Kim, who wore a gray pinstriped suit and tied her hair back in a bun, looking very fresh despite a trip to Washington DC and Orlando. Florida, which she missed in court the day before.

“It’s all so blurry,” she said, recalling her brother Rob “looking red and bloated and exhausted and drained.”

Kim added: “It was our show and she’s not family.”

But now Chyna, 33, is suing the entire Kardashian clan for defamation, claiming they intentionally interfered with their contract for Keeping up with the Kardashians spin-off Rob and Chyna.

Kim, 41, Khloe Kardashian, 37, Kylie and her mother, family matriarch Kris Jenner, 66, are all named defendants in the $108 million lawsuit.

In court on Tuesday Chyna’s attorney Lynne Ciani has grilled Kim over the intent of the text message she sent to her sisters – and whether they ever had a family reunion over the cancellation of Rob and Chyna’s second season.

The lawyer pointed this out an email from Kim to the producers of KUWTK, in which she discussed taking a break from the show and warned that “you’re going to lose the rest of the Kardashians and Jenners” if they continue filming with Chyna.

“You already got Chyna off her show (Rob and Chyna) and now you didn’t want her on your show (KUWTK) either?” Ciani asked the reality star.

“Just saying, this is our show,” Kim replied. “We have discretion as to what content we will film.

“Why do you want to put my brother in this situation when he’s going to end up crying and she (Chyna) just shows up to film and isn’t with him?

“Why should we film her on our show? It was our show and she’s not family.’

Kim also told the attorney at least four times that she doesn’t remember why she sent the urgent text message to her sisters.

Former E! Network President Adam Stotsky also testified Tuesday that the spin-off show Rob and Chyna was supposed to be about their “new blossoming relationship,” but when that relationship “started to fall apart… it was kind of gross.”

Also on Tuesday, Kim’s sister Khloe testified that she too is concerned that “something crazy is going to happen down the line” if there were to be a second season of the KUWTK spin-off.

Acknowledging Kim’s comments about the metal wand, she said: “I know it was a metal wand. I saw red nicks on my brother’s neck.”

But, she said, the family has “no control” over whether E! would terminate Chyna’s contract – a claim later corroborated by Adam Stotsky, the network’s former president.

‘With all due respect to [the Kardashians], they don’t have the authority to kill Rob and Chyna, only E! has the power to do so,” Stotsky said in court.

And when the Kardashians’ attorney, Michael Rhodes, asked him, “Did the Kardashians do anything to get you to say, ‘No Season 2,’ Stotsky replied, “No.”

Instead, he said, the original premise for Rob and Chyna was the couple’s “new blossoming relationship” with a light-hearted, romantic comedy vibe.

But when that relationship started to “fall apart” — with Rob and Chyna fighting at first and then not even speaking to each other, he said, “it was kind of gross.”
