According to reports, The foundation is dedicated to providing resources for drug education, prevention and rehabilitation programs and works to support people as they transition from addiction to recovery.

Chyna said that, despite what rumors might have circulated about her relationship with the Kardashian clan, she did not start dating Rob Kardashian, to get back at Jenner for dating her ex.
“It didn’t happen that way. Definitely didn’t happen that way,” she said, adding that she was hesitant to fall for Kardashian because of the drama with Tyga and Kylie.
“After all that stuff, the turmoil and whatnot, Robert, he was hitting me up on Instagram all the time, and I thought it was a setup. Like, they’re trying to set me up to go with the brother — I’m not falling for that,” she continued. But at a New Year’s party in Arkansas, Chyna decided to call him, and they became a couple not long after she returned to Los Angeles.
When pressed by Williams to say whether Tyga or Kardashian was the better “lover,” Chyna finally went with Kardashian.
“Can I choose neither? I’ve got to pick one? Better lover? Rob,” she said — but she did add that she would not get back together with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.
Chyna also said she hopes to remain on good terms with Kylie Jenner, as well.
“You know, that is Dreamy’s auntie,” she said. “And when me and Robert were together, we kind of put those differences aside. From now on, I’m fine on my side and I’m hoping that we’re good.”

On her current relationship with her mom Toyko Toni.
“I mean I feel like family is family she’s always going to be my mom. I love her to death but I feel like another reason why I wanted to like start being more verbal. Because the media and different things she feel as though I have control over that so when I don’t speak up for her. It becomes a problem. At the very end of the day, she isn’t a celebrity, so people like follow her, and talk bad about her. So, with that being said and being like a normal person, being a mom of a celebrity is like it’s hurtful. So, that kinda out a strain also to in our relationship. “
Wendy Williams says to Chyna, “She called you a bad mom. I guess she was doing that to get your attention.”
“So, I scored my own docu-series, and it’s with this network called Zeus. Basically, it’s like Netflix. You subscribe, and you can watch it anywhere, on your phone, on your laptop,” she said. “Right now, we’re still working on it, but it’s a docu-series, so hopefully we’re not counting the episodes. It’s the real Blac Chyna. The good, the bad. All of that.”
