Blac Chyna’s Lawyer Calls Revenge Porn an ‘Assault’

0

There could be serious legal ramifications for Rob Kardashian after he released revenge porn of ex-fiancée Blac Chyna.

“We are taking this assault against Chyna very seriously and still exploring all available legal remedies to her at this time,” Chyna’s attorney, Walter Mosley, told Page Six on Thursday.

California, which both reality stars call home, has had an anti-revenge porn (or cyber exploitation) law on the books since 2013. According to a state website specifically set up for victims, the crime is defined as “the non-consensual distribution and publication of intimate photos or videos. … These photos or videos are then posted on websites or sold for profit to humiliate, degrade, harass, physically endanger, or extort the victim.”

At the time the website was launched in 2015, then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris promised the state would aggressively go after any person who posted the photos or videos and the website that hosts them.

Punishment could be up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.

Attorney Lisa Bloom, who is representing Mischa Barton in her revenge porn case against an ex-boyfriend, explained to us that what Rob, 30, published on his Instagram and Twitter accounts may constitute a crime. Bloom also said that Chyna, 29, “likely has a private right of action against [Rob] for money damages for the emotional distress he has surely caused her.”

Both Rob and Chyna have gone radio silent since the Arthur George sock designer posted his final tweet, but the Kardashian-Jenner clan has been busy trying to distract everyone from the drama surrounding the former couple.

The pair are parents to a baby girl named Dream.
