Model Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian’s rumored new girlfriend, faces public intoxication, drug charges
Blac Chyna, the rumored new flame of reality star Rob Kardashian, is grabbing newer headlines with a weekend arrest in Texas.
The former exotic dancer, real name Angela Renee White, who got tongues a-waggin’ last week when she was linked to the reclusive E! star, was arrested at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Friday after being booted from a London-bound British Airways flight.
The 27-year-old was booked on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication and a felony charge of possession, according to the Associated Press, and the arrest affidavit shed new light on the incident on Monday.
Rapper Tyga’s ex-fiancee was reportedly ousted from the flight because she smelled like alcohol then made her way to an airport bar where her behavior became “unpredictable” and she went from “extremely angry, cursing at everyone then to crying,” according to the affidavit obtained by Us Weekly. She was said to be “verbally aggressive” to the bartender after he wouldn’t serve her the amount of alcohol she wanted and had to be carried out of the bar by two officers.
Her lawyer posted her $8,000 bail early Saturday morning, and Chyna will have to undergo a drug evaluation and counseling in California, E! News reported.
Kardashian, 28, who has been staying with the model since leaving sister Khloe Kardashian’s mansion, is said to have driven to Austin to pick up his girlfriend just after learning her arrest, TMZ reported, and the couple were spotted in Beverly Hills on Monday morning.
Amid her legal woes, Kardashian posted an image of himself FaceTiming with Chyna on Instagram early Saturday morning. The coupling has reportedly drawn the ire of Kardashian’s famous family, a source told E! News, which airs the family’s reality series, noting that the sisters are “livid about their relationship and not supportive of it at all.”
