Rob Kardashian reacted with the fury of a scorned lover in his latest saga with Blac Chyna. Kardashian turned to Instagram and Twitter and claimed that Blac Chyna cheated on him with eight men in the past month. But while Kardashian’s rant on Instagram became a trending topic and inspired responses from Snoop Dogg and T.I., it could have also been illegal and may land him in jail.

While posting several angry posts aimed at Blac Chyna, Kardashian also released several nude photos of her. In the state of California, revenge porn is considered a crime. Revenge porn is classified as nude pics or videos that are released by scorned lovers against an ex-partner’s will. It’s considered an “invasion of privacy.”

Revenge porn includes, an image of the intimate body part of another identifiable person, or an image of that person engaged in sexual intercourse, masturbation,  sodomy, oral copulation or masturbation; You intentionally distribute that image; there was an understanding between you and that person that the image would remain private; and the person depicted suffers serious emotional distress.

If charged and convicted, Kardashian could face six months in jail for his actions. Moreover, Blac Chyna could also file a lawsuit against Kardashian. Her attorney, Walter Mosley, revealed to People that she could seek legal action. It could also affect Kardashian’s ability to see their child, Dream Kardashian, in the future. If Blac Chyna shows that he is an unstable parent, it could affect custody.

The Kardashians always find ways to create social media moments and Rob’s rant could have been a plot for more attention. But he also committed a crime that could eventually land him in jail.
