Blac Chyna has revealed she was ‘distraught’ to learn her daughter Dream Kardashian flew on a helicopter which later crashed, killing basketball star Kobe Bryant and eight others.
In an angry statement via her lawyer, the 31-year-old explained she only learnt of Dream’s November birthday flight after it happened, and immediately complained to her ex, Rob Kardashian.
Following on from Kylie’s revelation that she had flown on the doomed helicopter, Chyna expressed her anger at not being consulted before Dream joined her aunt and father on the flight.

‘Chyna has become aware that Kylie Jenner is using the tragic deaths of Kobe Bryant, his beautiful daughter, and seven other precious souls to profess her ‘distress’ that she and Dream had ridden on the same helicopter with the same pilot prior to Sunday’s horrific crash,’ Chyna’s lawyer Lynne Ciana, wrote in a statement.
‘No parents should find out after the fact that their child has participated in a dangerous activity without their permission. Chyna was distraught to learn that Kylie had taken Dream on that helicopter ride in November 2019. Chyna voiced her strong objections to Rob [Kardashian] and insisted that it never happen again.’
Kylie had not mentioned her niece in her statement, instead sharing pictures of the nine tragic passengers.
