The ex-couple’s 3-year-old daughter Dream, reportedly received a first-degree burn on her leg at the end of February, which required medical treatment.
“Rob admitted that Dream had received the severe burn at his home and promised it would never happen again,” Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, said in a statement to Page Six. “Chyna immediately sought out and obtained appropriate medical treatment for Dream’s burn.”
Dream allegedly sustained a second burn on March 21, after visiting with her father, the report states.
“… Chyna was shocked and extremely upset to discover that Dream had suffered a second severe burn very near the first burn on her leg,” the statement continued. “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 learned about Dream’s second burn from Rob’s then-nanny, who texted the mother of two and admitted that Dream received the burn from a lightbulb.
“Chyna again sought medical care for Dream and learned that the most recent burn on her leg was a second-degree burn,” the statement read, noting it was at that point that Chyna contacted DCFS and the police “to request an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dream’s second-degree burn.”
The nanny in question no longer works for Rob.
“Chyna will do everything within her power to ensure Dream’s safety during her visitations with her father,” continued Ciani’s statement, noting Blac Chyna will now have to approve the new nanny Rob hires.
“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 concluded.
In a follow-up statement, Ciani added, “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.”
In response, Rob’s attorney, Marty Singer, told Page Six that “Rob treated Dream appropriately and Chyna was informed. Following an investigation by the DCFS and the police in which Rob fully cooperated, he has every reason to believe that there will be no findings of any safety issues in his home,” Singer’s statement also noted thar “third parties” have called on DCFS to visit the Chyna’s’s home over Dream.
“… Within the last month, Dream has arrived to Rob from Chyna with many unexplained injuries including rashes, cuts, bruises and a dislocated arm,” the statement continued. “Just this past Saturday while Chyna was claiming that she was so concerned about Dream’s safety, Chyna posted a video on Instagram depicting 3-year-old Dream on her 7-year-old brother’s back while he was jumping on a trampoline.”
Rob, via his attorney, accuses Chyna of wasting “valuable public resources” by calling first responders to his home in a “desperate attempt to smear Rob’s name” in their legal battle over Dream.
