Blac Chyna – with the support of her lawyer, Lisa Bloom – has spoken out about her ex Rob Kardashian’s recent “social media meltdown”, which saw him post private and explicit photos of Chyna on his Instagram account.

“I was devastated,” she said on Good Morning America. “How could somebody post these photos of me?

“Like, this is a person I trusted. I felt… betrayed.”

Chyna went on to address reports that she herself had ‘liked’ a handful of the images from her own social media account.

“I didn’t like none of the photos,” she said.

“I actually have Rob Kardashian blocked from my Instagram.”

At this point in the interview GMA presenter Linsey Davis thought it relevant to flag up the fact that Chyna has posted explicit photos of herself in the past – and even asked the model and reality star where she draws the line.

“I'm going to draw the line at I'm Angela White [Chyna’s real name]. I'm Blac Chyna. I can do whatever I want,” said Chyna. “It's my body.”

Kardashian claimed that Chyna had sent him the explicit images – as well as a video of her being intimate with another man – in an attempt to make him jealous. Earlier this week, the reality star told his 9.9 million followers that he was making them public to show how badly she had treated him.

Referring to Kardashian’s claims, Davis asked Chyna: “Why did you send Rob a video of you with another man?”

Chyna responded: “I've been broken up with Rob since December.

“It's like, if somebody keeps poking at you and poking at you and poking at you, and keep poking at you, eventually you're going to pop. I was just like, ‘Maybe if I send this video to him, then he'll just leave me alone.’”

Chyna has since been awarded a temporary restraining order against Kardashian – and her attorney Bloom, speaking outside the courthouse, thanked the court for imposing “very strong and enforceable orders” that bar Kardashian from coming near her client, cyberbullying her or posting anything about her online of a personal nature, including photos and videos.

“Revenge porn is a form of domestic abuse and it is also a crime in California and 38 other states. It is wrong,” said Bloom, who also represents actor Mischa Barton.

“We are just delighted about the victory we had this morning.”

Bloom went on to confirm that, on behalf of Chyna, she will be taking Kardashian to court on charges of “non-consensual pornography” – for which he could face up to six months in prison.

In a statement, Bloom warned Kardashian: “Chyna ended your relationship months ago and she has the right to live as she chooses, work as she chooses, dress as she chooses, and be intimate with who she chooses.

“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.”
