  • Kris Jenner's partner told an LA courtroom that he witnessed Blac Chyna abuse Rob Kardashian.

  • Corey Gamble said he had to physically intervene to stop her on December 15, 2016.

  • Gamble said that afterward, she said she wouldn't like Kardashian "if he wasn't part of the family."

Kris Jenner's partner, Corey Gamble, told jurors during his testimony in Los Angeles court on Tuesday that he personally witnessed Blac Chyna physically abuse Rob Kardashian on December 15, 2016, and had to intervene to stop it.

Gamble, an entrepreneur and talent manager, was testifying at the trial for Chyna's defamation lawsuit against Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian. He said that on the morning of December 15, 2016, Kris Jenner's phone rang about 7 a.m. and her son, Rob Kardashian, was calling. Gamble said he "could hear Chyna screaming in the background."

"She was telling Rob, 'Fuck you. I'm going to kill you, you fat motherfucker.' It was a hostile situation. I put on whatever clothes were closest to me and left to the house," Gamble said.

At the time, Kardashian and Chyna were living in Kylie Jenner's house, which Gamble said was four to five blocks away in the Hidden Hills neighborhood near Calabasas, California. The incident has taken a center stage in Chyna's defamation suit.

Chyna, whose legal name is Angela White, is seeking $100 million in damages from the Kardashian-Jenner family. She alleges the family unfairly trash-talked her to E! network executives five years ago and that led to her "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" spinoff, "Rob & Chyna," being canceled.

Last week, Chyna said the physical confrontation was the pair "just being silly" and celebrating the renewal of "Rob & Chyna" but that the mood turned when Rob Kardashian stole her phone, which she said was part of jealous behavior that was present throughout their relationship. The family alleged that Chyna drank heavily that night and later threatened to kill Kardashian and held an unloaded gun to his head at one point.

Gamble was one of the only other people present during the confrontation — and the second to testify. (Chyna also discussed the events of that day during her testimony.)

He told jurors he drove over to Kylie Jenner's house "within two minutes" and that when he entered, he saw Chyna screaming at Kardashian with a rod in her hand.

"Whatever was in her hand, she threw down. She grabbed a long charger cord on the ground and started whipping it at him and started hitting him" before Gamble said he inserted himself between the pair.

"I could smell the alcohol heavy on her," he added.

Gamble told the court that he instructed Kardashian to get his car keys to leave the premises as he attempted to cordon Chyna off in another room and "realized I had blocked Rob in with my car."

Gamble described trying to leave to move his car quickly without letting Kardashian and Chyna have contact again.

When he moved his car and Kardashian tried to get into his, Gamble said Chyna "was punching him in the back of the head and threw a chair at the front of the car, and then tried to throw a patio table, which I took from her."

Gamble said that once Kardashian was able to drive away, he temporarily hid Chyna's keys so that she wouldn't drive after him. After Kardashian left, Gamble said that Chyna, still angry from the incident, said: "I wouldn't like this fat fucker if he wasn't part of the family."

"As far as I know, December 15, 2016, that's when the relationship was over. I grew up around that kind of behavior. It reminds me of everything. I understood it was not going to stop," Gamble said, referring to a mix of alcohol and physical abuse.

The trial continued Wednesday and is set to last through Friday.
