On Wednesday, Rob Kardashian sent the internet into a tizzy when he went on an explicit rant about his relationship with Blac Chyna, the mother of his infant daughter, Dream.
In addition to leaking nude pictures of his ex-fiancee, the KUTK reality star accused Chyna of stepping out on their relationship, drug use, and much more. While Chyna clapped back on Snapchat, alleging that Kardashian had “beat” her, she has since deleted the story.
Instead, on Friday, Chyna lawyered up and is reportedly headed to court to file a restraining order against her troubled ex. “I represent Blac Chyna. I just gave Rob Kardashian notice that we’ll be in court Monday seeking restraining orders against him,” attorney Lisa Bloom tweeted. “Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal,” Bloom continued in a statement. “Cyberbullying your ex is harassment.”
So, what’s next for Chyna and who is her high-powered attorney? Here’s what we know.
She graduated from Yale:
Lisa Bloom, 55, attended the University of California, Los Angeles before trekking it to the East Coast, where she graduated from Yale Law School. She is the founder and managing partner of the Bloom Firm in LA. She is also licensed to practice in New York.
She comes from a long line of lawyers:
Bloom is the daughter of feminist attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing at least 28 women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault. She is also representing three women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault.
In 2013, Lisa’s daughter, Sarah — a newly minted attorney — graduated from Fordham Law School.
She’s got an impressive client list:
In addition to Chyna, Bloom represents Janice Dickinson, who claimed Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her nearly three decades ago. She also represented Dr. Wendy Walsh, who publicly accused Bill O’Reilly of unwanted sexual advances and a woman who sued Trump for sexual harassment, alleging he groped her at a business dinner.
Most recently, Bloom represented comedian Kathy Griffin after she posted an ill-received image of a faux-bloody head of Trump, resulting in her dismissal from CNN.
In yet another revenge porn case, Bloom represented former “O.C.” star Mischa Barton after an ex-boyfriend threatened to leak videos of them having sex. Bloom won the court case barring Barton’s disgruntled ex from distributing their private sex tape.
As for why she chose to represent Chyna, she said in a statement:
She is “very proud” to represent the reality TV star, as she is standing up for her rights as a woman and a mother. “Chyna and I both believe this is an important women’s rights issue,” she wrote. “As too many women and girls have been slut-shamed by exes.”
