Blac Chyna’s mother, Tokyo Toni, is asking fans for financial help for her daughter’s ongoing crusade against the Kardashian-Jenner clan after Chyna lost a multimillion-dollar libel lawsuit against the reality TV stars.

Toni – whose legal name is Shalana Hunter – started a GoFundMe to raise $400,000 to financially support Chyna’s appeal after a jury ruled in favor of the Kardashians on Monday and did not award Chyna any restitution in the ‘affair.

A since-expired Instagram story shared on Chyna’s platform promoted the crowdfunding campaign with a direct link to the account, according to reports.

Fox News Digital has reached out to representatives for Chyna for comment.

Chyna’s mother had previously been banned from the courtroom after posting a rant on social media about the defendants. At one point, she said the Kardashians “looked like they were dead” in person.

She called Kris Jenner “old and decrepit” and mocked Khloe for “shaking her head for everything every juror said.” She added, “Are you okay, b—-? Did you have Xanax or something before you arrived, b—-?”

Shortly after, Toni was dropped from the proceedings after the Kardashian-Jenner family attorney argued in court that Kris “was worried about her physical safety.”

Chyna, who was born Angela Renée White, accused Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and momager Kris in the lawsuit of ruining her reputation, in addition to convincing E! network to end “Rob & Chyna,” her 2016 reality show with ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian.

The show aired for one season and followed the former couple as they prepared for the birth of their daughter Dream, who is now five years old.

One of the main focuses of the nine-day trial was an alleged physical fight between the exes in December 2016 when Rob claimed Chyna hit him with a metal pole during a particularly violent episode.

“She landed multiple blows on my face, my back,” Rob said of the incident, which began the night of December 14, 2016, and continued the next morning.

“She ripped my shirt off early in the evening and we threw money in our Snapchat,” he added. “At first I thought it was playful. I didn’t think it got serious until the second gun encounter…you don’t point a gun at your fiancé’s head, you think. whether it is charged or not.”

Months later, Rob posted explicit photographs of Chyna online and accused his child’s mother of drug and alcohol abuse.

E! network executives testified that “Rob & Chyna” ended because the relationship ended, not because of the defendants’ actions.

Chyna first sued Kim, Khloe, Kylie and Kris for $40 million in lost profits and more than $60 million in future earnings and claimed the family ‘conspired’ to get the show canceled, charges which the family denied.

The jury did not award Chyna damages, but found the “Keeping Up with the Kardashian” stars acted to protect their own interests.

Following Monday’s news, Michael Rhodes and Michelle Doolin, attorneys for the famous family, released a statement.

“On behalf of Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kylie, I would like to express our gratitude to the jury,” read the statement obtained by Fox News Digital.

“We are also grateful for Judge Alarcon’s steady hand in ensuring this trial was fair. The jury sent a clear message to Ms White and her lawyer – I hope they are listening. Justice prevailed. “

Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, spoke to Page Six and other reporters after the verdict was announced.

“Two things. First, the jury found that Chyna did not physically abuse Rob Kardashian,” Ciani said.

“Second, the jury found that all four defendants intentionally interfered with [Chyna’s] contracts with E! Network. We will appeal the rest of the verdict.”
