Blac Chyna has left Rob Kardashian after he posted sexually explicit pictures of her on Instagram in an angry tirade. She hired Lisa Bloom to defend her in court, and help seek a restraining order which was granted as of Monday. The lawyer released the following statement;
“I am very proud to represent Blac Chyna as she stands up for her rights as a woman and as a mother against her ex, Rob Kardashian. Yesterday Chyna retained me, and today we filed for temporary restraining orders to protect her rights. Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal. Cyberbullying your ex is harassment. Chyna ended your relationship months ago and she has the right to live as she chooses, work as she chooses, dress as she chooses, date who she chooses, and be intimate with who she chooses. Chyna and I both believe that this is an important women’s rights issues, as too many women and girls have been slut-shamed by exes. It stops now. Your attempts to shame and control her body are hereby rejected. Her body, her choice. Her life, her choice. Back off. ”
A source close to the couple said that the two had a rocky relationship to date, and they had had a lot of difficulties since around late December. They state that, “Rob and Chyna haven’t really been together since Christmas, not really properly. They are looking forward to co-parenting.” As per the source, the former couple are putting their daughter first. They continue by stating, “In a romantic relationship, Rob doesn’t trust Chyna at all. They both had major trust issues, and they grew apart. The fighting is over for now.” In regards to the Kardashian, Jenner clan the source says, “Rob’s family isn’t happy or sad about it; they just want Rob to be happy and that relationship wasn’t making either of them happy anymore. Rob and Chyna know and understand that they aren’t meant to be together.”
Caitlyn Jenner, who was recently a guest on The View, discussed the topic. She stated “Rob was stupid for doing that, and he kind of apologized but I really have not had much of a relationship I haven’t met Blac Chyna, never met the kid. Rob, I haven’t really had a serious conversation with in years so I have kind of been out of that scene so I really can’t comment on what’s going on there.”
When she was asked if she expected Rob to do something like that she responded, “Yes. Guys I know I used to be over on that side. They can be really stupid, and do really stupid things. You really have to pick your friends. It’s tough to do. You can be tremendously deceived. ”
Lisa Bloom was also interviewed on the show. When asked if Blac Chyna willingly taking the photos that were published without her consent effected the legal situation she responded, “They are different. In Blac Chyna’s case she says Rob Kardashian asked her for photos months ago, and she never imagined that he would put them up publically. ” She continued, “I want women out there to know that regardless of whether or not it was done secretly, or even sent the photos yourself privately, we still have the right to say ‘no.’ You can go into court, and get domestic violence restraining orders.”
We have yet to hear anything from Rob Kardashian, and we continue to wish Blac Chyna all the best in this trying time. Her efforts to persecute Rob, who may face up to six months in jail as well as fines, would serve as a huge milestone for victims on non-consensually leaked sexually explicit images everywhere.
