Blac Chyna is having to answer to the government, after the State of California filed a lien against her for owing benefits to her assistant, who tragically passed away while working for the reality star.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the State of California Department of Industrial Relations filed the lien against Chyna as the majority share holder in 'Lashed.' The company is Blac Chyna's eye lash business and online store in Los Angeles.
The case is in response to claim made by the family of Lorena "Patty" Hernandez who worked for the reality star for 3 years."Please take notice that the Director of Industrial Relations, State of California or the Worker's Compensation Appeals Board, determined Angela White has not secured the payment of compensation as required," the document states.
The government has placed the lien on Blac Chyna's business and property.
