Rob Kardashian violated California’s revenge porn law and could face jail time after he posted nude photos of Blac Chyna online during a social media meltdown, a high-end attorney told the Daily News.


Lisa Bloom — who won a revenge porn case involving actress Mischa Barton last month — believes Kardashian’s actions violated a law that was instituted in California in 2013 that spells out what the court considers to be revenge porn.


“Revenge porn is illegal in CA and it certainly appears to me that Rob has violated this criminal law,” Bloom told the Daily News.

Rob Kardashian posted multiple nude photos he claimed to be of Blac Chyna on Wednesday.

The aforementioned law lists the legal definition of revenge porn as a person having an image of an “intimate body part of another identifiable person, or an image of that person engaged in sexual intercourse, sodomy, oral copulation or masturbation.”

The person then must intentionally distribute the image despite there being an understanding that it be kept private, and do so with the intention of causing emotional distress. The person pictured in the image then must suffer emotional distress.


Bloom believes Kardashian’s actions fit this criteria, and said jail could be on the table.


“The criminal penalty is up to six months in jail,” she said. “If she sued him for money damages, the amount she received would depend on the emotional distress she suffered. Given that he has a large social media following, if the jury was sympathetic to her, she could recover millions.”


Kardashian posted the photos as part of a heated social media tirade Wednesday, during which he accused Chyna of repeatedly cheating on him with multiple men.

The explicit photos have since been removed from his Instagram page.


Bloom recently represented Barton in a case where the actress’ boyfriend was barred from releasing explicit photos and a sex tape he allegedly recorded without her consent while they were dating.
