Blac Chyna is claiming that her daughter Dream suffered multiple burns while in Rob Kardashian‘s custody. The alleged incidents took place when the 3-year-old was being cared for by a nanny, with whom Kardashian is now parting ways.
In a lengthy statement to PEOPLE on Wednesday, Chyna’s attorney alleged that Dream suffered burns on her legs on two separate occasions — in February and March — while at her father’s home.
“In late February, Dream returned to Chyna’s home after visiting her father, Rob Kardashian, with a first degree burn on her leg. Rob admitted that Dream had received the severe burn at his home and promised it would never happen again. Chyna immediately sought out and obtained appropriate medical treatment for Dream’s burn,” the statement begins.
Chyna (née Angela Renée White) claims in the statement that on Saturday, Dream returned home after visiting Kardashian, 33, with yet another burn “very near the first burn on her leg.”

“When Chyna reached out to Rob to find out what had happened to their daughter, Rob initially lied to Chyna and denied that Dream’s second burn happened at his home,” Chyna’s attorney says.
“Rob then changed his story and had his nanny send a text message admitting that Dream received the second burn at Rob’s house from a hot lightbulb,” the statement continues. “Chyna again sought medical care for Dream and learned that the most recent burn on her leg was a second degree burn.”
Currently, Chyna, 31, who is also mom to 7-year-old son King Cairo (with ex Tyga), is in a custody battle with Kardashian. As a result of the alleged incidents, Chyna says she requested that police investigate “the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn.”
“To protect her daughter’s physical and emotional well-being, Chyna contacted Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and the police to request an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn. Any responsible parent would do the same,” the statement continues.
“Chyna has since learned that the nanny who was allegedly watching Dream when she was burned both times will no longer work for Rob,” the statement reads.
Chyna is now requesting the right to approve Kardashian’s next nanny.
“While that development is a good start, Chyna will do everything within her power to ensure Dream’s safety during her visitations with her father,” her attorney says in the statement. “At a minimum, this will include Chyna’s approval of Rob’s new nanny. Chyna still wants her daughter to be allowed visitations with her father.”
“However, she also of course wants to ensure that Dream is never burned again (or injured by other neglectful conduct) while visiting her father,” the statement says. “It is very important for the American public to know that our brave law enforcement and DCFS personnel are still working to protect children during the coronavirus pandemic.”
