They’ve been doing their best to keep a low profile in Blac Chyna’s $108 million lawsuit against them, and the Kardashian family has yet to be photographed in court.
But thanks to some unflattering court sketches, appearances by Kim Kardashian and her sisters Khloe and Kylie, as well as mom Kris Jenner, have now become a topic of conversation online, with social media users They have been left speechless by the portraits of the famous brothers.
“Blac Chyna court case court sketches are brutal,” one fan wrote, as the illustrations set Twitter ablaze on Tuesday.
“Kim is going to sue this courtroom cartoonist,” another Twitter user joked, while one person commented that the artist must “hate” Kylie for her harsh portrayal in the sketch.
‘Brutal’: Social media users have been gasped by unrecognizable courtroom sketches showing (left to right) Khloe, Kylie, Kim and Kris, who are currently involved in legal proceedings with the ex brother Rob’s girlfriend, Blac Chyna.
Others suggested that the reality stars’ court drawings indicate how much their faces have changed over the years, with one person describing them as “showing how warped they’ve become.”
“The court cartoonist is clearly NOT a Kardashian fan,” the Twitter user wrote, adding, “These ugly renderings of Kim, Khloe and Kylie are hysterical and speak to how they have been warped in a very unappealing way.” . Good for Chris. She looks good!’
Meanwhile, some joked that the courtroom artist “must be Team Chyna” as the reality star did so much better at illustrations.
Chyna, whose real name is Angela White, is seeking $108 million in damages, according to court documents: $44 million for “past economic damages” and $64 million for “future economic damages.”
Kris, Kylie, Kim and Khoe are the defendants in the case, accused by Chyna, ex-fiancée of Kim’s brother Rob, of causing her and Rob’s hit show to be cancelled.
Backlash: Many fans felt the court cartoonist had dirty the famous family in the drawings that were released this week.
They have yet to be photographed in court in Los Angeles, and the sketches serve as the only visible representation of their attendance at legal proceedings, much to the delight of social media.
The sketches are the work of illustrator Mona Shafer Edwards, who states on her website that her work has spanned everything from “court drama” to “fashion.”
Previous courtroom sketches included on his site feature the likes of Michael Jackson and OJ Simpson.
The illustrator describes herself as “bringing a fluid, graceful and evocative style” to her work, though her latest drawings of the Kardashians don’t seem to have impressed social media.
Last week, Kardashian’s attorney, Michael Rhodes, submitted a massive list of evidence (42 pages with more than 540 items) that he intends to take to court.

Comparisons: The artist’s impressions of the famous family, including matriarch Kris Jenner (seen on the left last year and on the right in her court illustration), left many fans scratching their heads over who was who on Tuesday
The list includes dozens of aired and unaired video clips of Rob and Chyna, excerpts from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, text messages and social media posts between various members of the Kardashian family and others involved in the case.
It also includes Chyna’s pay stubs, photos of Chyna with Kim and other Kardashians, YouTube videos, and news reports.
Chyna claims the $44 million was the amount she could have made from her TV show, club appearances and the internet over the last five years if Rob and Chyna hadn’t been canceled in 2017.
Chinese team? However, other fans noted that the courtroom cartoonist may have been a fan of Blac Chyna, as the illustration of him was much more complimentary.

And the $64 million is her estimate of what she could have made in the future, her attorney, Lynne Ciani, said in court papers, if Chyna hadn’t been ‘basically censored by Hollywood after they (the Kardashians) defamed her. and got their No. 1 hit show cancelled.’
The Kardashians’ attorney, Michael Rhodes, scoffed at Chyna’s $108 million damage estimate, calling it “speculation and conjecture,” in court papers.
Rhodes filed a motion to bar Chyna’s defense team from mentioning the Kardashians’ wealth during the trial, saying it could sway the jury.
Conversation starter: The sketches, which are the work of illustrator Mona Shafer Edwards, sparked a lively debate on social media.
“The sole purpose of making reference to the wealth and financial status of the defendants is to unduly inflame and prejudice the jury against the defendants,” he wrote in his motion.
But Chyna’s attorney, Ciani, objected to that motion, saying, “Defendants routinely flaunt their wealth in their business dealings and on their reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
“It simply will not be feasible to ‘warn’ witnesses not to refer to Defendants’ wealth because their wealth pervades their very essence.”
The Kardashians tried to settle out of court with Chyna last week to avoid going to trial, it was revealed at a pre-trial hearing last Friday. But she refused her offer.
Find the difference! Cartoonist Edwards describes herself as “bringing a flowing, elegant and evocative style to the illustrations.”
Kim, Kylie Jenner, Khloe and their mother, family matriarch Kris Jenner, are all accused in the case.
