Unless you’ve been holed up in an internet-less place for the past 36 hours, you’ll already know that Rob Kardashian went on a serious social media rampage, and among other things, posted naked, sexual and indecent images of his ex-fiancée Blac Chyna.
Although Blac Chyna – who is also mother to their daughter, Dream – responded by suggesting in a since-deleted snap on Snapchat that Rob had been violently abusive to her, she’s kept fairly quiet on the matter. More quiet than usual, anyway. And certainly more quiet than we would expect, given the situation.
But instead of wasting her time posting bitter social media updates, Blac Chyna has used it wisely to get legal help.
And it looks like she has quite a good case on her hands because there are no way ways about it – she has been the victim of a sex crime. Not to mention the fact that revenge porn was made a crime under the California Penal Code back in 2013.
“I am exploring all legal remedies and protections available to my client at this time in attempts to best advise her on how she may want to proceed,” Blac Chyna’s lawyer Walter Mosley said in a statement to People last night.
Another legal expert, who has no involvement in Blac Chyna’s case, may we add, also weighed in…
“This is sort of the classic, quintessential revenge porn,” said Carrie Goldberg, attorney and founder of Internet abuse and sexual consent firm C. A. Goldberg, PLLC.
“Rob has made the work of a prosecutor or a victim’s attorney quite easy so far as to even post about the very motive behind his outrageous act of posting these private and nude photos of his ex.”
“The allegation of infidelity does not give someone the right to seek revenge in such a devastating way.”
We couldn’t agree more. Outing someone for plastic surgery and ranting about cheating allegations – though bitter – are one thing, but posting indecent, pornographic images without the subject’s consent is definitely another.
We’ll keep you updated as and when we know more.
