Rob Kardashian's "Worst Case Scenario" For Revenge Porn Accusations? 6 Months In Prison

Rob's in hot water. 

Rob Kardashian could face up to six months in prison, says prominent revenge porn lawyer Omar Gastelum, who owns his own firm in Los Angeles and has been focusing on revenge porn law for years.

Attorney Omar Gastelum says in a worst case scenario, Rob will be charged criminally for posting private, nude pics of his ex fiancée Blac Chyna, and that he also faces a civil suit—whether he goes to jail or not.

“You have to prove specific elements in a revenge porn case,” explains Omar. “And the big issue with Rob’s case is that you have to show distress…The fact that Blac Chyna immediately liked the pictures, the problem is, there goes her argument of emotional distress. If she hadn’t of done that, she could have sued for more monetarily and could prove a criminal case.”

Where Rob faces trouble is twofold—one, he posted parts of Chyna’s body considered private, and two he posted medical issues of hers.

“That’s a big issue, that’s a HIPA violation and revenge porn,” Omar explains.

The problem criminally, is that Rob got pissed and this was to embarrass Chyna, says Omar, adding that that’s what revenge porn laws are meant to prevent.

Omar says that behind the scenes, the Kardashians—and Kris Jenner in particular—and probably working overtime to make this whole thing go away.

“I don’t know if Chyna will have a case criminally, this isn’t a slam dunk for her because she has some skeletons in her closet and she did like the pictures,” he says. “Worst case scenario is criminally Rob would face a misdemeanor and up to six months in country jail and or a fine up to $1,000.”

“Honestly in my opinion they’re going to settle with money, it’s going to be nasty mudslinging and the Kardashians don’t want to get into it. One million [to Chyna] is possible- It depends what they are willing to pay. This is going to settle…Chyna had started doing her media campaign putting pressure on Kris Jenner, because this is a publicity nightmare for them. Then it suddenly got quiet so she could be potentially settling this.”
