Rob Kardashian Could Possibly Face Jail Time For Posting Nude Pictures Of Blac Chyna

Lawyers say he violated a California law.

Rob Kardashian could face jail time for posted naked photos of Blac Chyna online during his social media meltdown on Wednesday.

Attorney Lisa Bloom — who won a revenge porn case involving actress Mischa Barton last month — told the Daily News that Kardashian violated a revenge porn law, instituted in California in 2013.

"Revenge porn is illegal in CA and it certainly appears to me that Rob has violated this criminal law," Bloom said.

That law defines 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" that is then intentionally distributed with the intention of causing emotional distress.

Kardashian could face six months in jail for misdemeanor charges stemming from the naked pictures, according to the LA Times.

Bloom said that Chyna could also sue for damages.

“Given that he has a large social media following, if the jury was sympathetic to her, she could recover millions.”

One revenge porn expert told the Daily News she doubts law enforcement will pursue criminal charges.

“There’s more of a question when talking about the Kardashians just because of their business plan,” lawyer Erica Johnstone said.
