Reality star Rob Kardashian could face jail for revenge porn

Blac Chyna’s attorney says he is “considering all legal action” after her ex-fiance Rob Kardashian posted numerous inflammatory messages and explicit images on social media yesterday, as legal experts weigh in on the likelihood that Kardashian could face jail time.

As Crime Online previously reported, Kardashian posted explicit video and photos of Chyna on Instagram yesterday; claiming one photo was of her genitals, and she sent it to him privately. This went on for several hours as Kardashian would re-post images after Instagram had taken them down. Ultimately, the social media platform shut down his account altogether late Wednesday afternoon.

But Kardashian then moved over Twitter, where he posted semi-nude photos of Chyna, claiming they were taken after surgery he paid for following the birth of their daughter. Those images have since been removed — it’s unclear if Twitter or Kardashian removed them — but a video of Chyna kissing another man remains.

Chyna’s attorney Walter Mosley¬†told ABC News that he is considering legal action, as Kardashian’s social media posts may be considered “revenge porn.”

“We are considering all legal options and recourses at this time,” Mosley told the news outlet.

Since 2013, it has been illegal in California to “distribute the image of the intimate body part or parts of another identifiable person,” ABC News reports.

Multiple attorneys told the Daily News that Kardashian could be facing stiff legal penalties, including a possible jail sentence.

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

Bloom said she thinks it is possible Kardashian could be sentenced to jail — and could also be hit with a hefty fine.

“The criminal penalty is up to six months in jail,” Bloom told the newspaper. “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.”

Chyna and Kardashian have had a very public on-again, off-again relationship, and were once engaged. Chyna gave birth to their daughter, Dream, in November.
