Rob Kardashian could face charges for revenge porn for posting Blac Chyna pictures.

Social media and reality television star Rob Kardashian could be subject to charges under California’s revenge porn law after posting nude pictures of his ex-fiancee Blac Chyna earlier this week and he’s already facing a temporary restraining order, according to media reports.

The drama started Wednesday when Kardashian, the sole male in the celebrity-family universe headed by sisters Kim, Khloe and Kortney, posted nude photographs of Chyna to his Instagram account and made details about their past relationship public.

Kardashian later claimed his Instagram account had been cut off, and he then took to Twitter to again post some of the images, then claimed Chyna had their child Dream to spite former boyfriend and rapper Tyga, who was dating Kardashian’s sister Kylie.

In response, Chyna hired lawyer Lisa Bloom Thursday and Bloom released a statement Friday, explaining the temporary order had been filed against Kardashian and called out his nude posts of Chyna as “revenge porn.” Bloom framed the issue as a “fight in women’s rights.”

“Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal,” the statement read. “Cyberbullying your ex is harassment.”

Bloom also said that she and Chyna believe “that this is an important women’s rights issue, as too many women and girls have been slut-shamed by exes.”

California’s “revenge porn” law, passed in 2013 and legally known as “nonconsensual pornography,” involves proving that the poster, in this case, Kardashian, did not have the alleged victim’s permission to put the photos up.

 

“This is, in many ways, exactly what the revenge porn law talks about,” criminal defense attorney Louis Shapiro told The Los Angeles Times Thursday. “A prosecutor here could choose to make an example of him even if she doesn’t want to cooperate.”

Shapiro also said that he would encourage Kardashian to delete the posts where he accused Chyna of cheating on him since it could be used as a motive by a prosecutor, who could proceed with a criminal case even if Chyna is not on board.

While California’s law has a “revenge porn” charge listed as a misdemeanor, a jail sentence for a conviction could equal as much as six months in prison, according to The Times.

The first conviction of the law took place in December 2014, when a man was sentenced to one year in jail for posting a topless photo of his ex-girlfriend to her employer’s Facebook page while calling her a “slut” and for her to be fired.
