Her attorney Lisa Bloom said she and her client will appear in court to request “the appropriate restraining orders”.

Reality star Rob, a California resident, has yet to address the announcement, and his representative reportedly did not respond to media queries.

Bloom’s statement reads: “Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal. Cyberbullying your ex is harassment. Chyna and I both believe that this is an important women’s rights issue, as too many women and girls have been slut-shamed by exes. It stops now. Your attempts to shame and control her are hereby rejected. Her body, her choice. Her life, her choice. Back off.”

On Wednesday, he shared graphic images on Instagram of Chyna - real name Angela Renée White - which may have violated California law that prohibits the distribution of what’s commonly referred to as “revenge porn”.

Even though his Instagram profile was disabled, social media went bos as the pictures were uploaded to Twitter. In a series of tweets, Rob allegedly accused Chyna of jolling.

According to Bloom, Chyna ended her relationship with Rob earlier this year. They were first linked in early 2016, and that April, they announced their engagement. They share a daughter, Dream.
