Arenas says Blac Chyna was wrong for asking 100 million from the Kardashians

Arenas was asked what went wrong for Chyna. He says, ” One, you’re going against one of the most powerful families… If they don’t want their son to be in part 2, you can’t sue… It’s a waste of money. You’re better off asking for 2 million. A 100 million makes them fight and then they’re going to fight because they have the backing to do it, which drains their pocket.”
