Los Angeles — A court commissioner on Monday issued a temporary restraining order against Rob Kardashian in response to the reality television star's posting of explicit images of his ex-fiancée on social media last week.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner James E. Blancarte granted the order based on filings by Kardashian's ex Blac Chyna, who also claims he hit her in the thigh earlier this year, knocking her down and leaving her bruised.
"Rob has been violent with me in the past and I am afraid to be around him," Chyna, whose real name is Angela White, wrote in court documents filed on Monday in LA.
The order bars Kardashian from contacting Chyna or coming within 100 yards (91 metres) of her home, car or workplace. The order also prohibits him from posting images online of Chyna or the infant daughter they share.
Chyna's attorney Lisa Bloom called the hearing "a complete and total victory."
"The judge gave us everything we asked for," she said.
Total and complete court victory this morning. We worked hard on this all weekend. Revenge porn is domestic abuse. https://t.co/OK91xV1f10— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) July 10, 2017
The order will remain in effect until an 8 August hearing.
Chyna sought a temporary restraining order on Monday, less than a week after Kardashian went on a tirade against her on Instagram and Twitter, including posting explicit images of her.
Blancarte sealed exhibits in the case, citing their explicit nature. Bloom has accused Kardashian of cyber bullying.
Blancarte said his primary concern was the former couple's infant child. Bloom said in court that nannies would handle custody transfers while the order is in place.
Outside the courthouse, Chyna said: "First and foremost, I want to thank the judge for granting me this restraining order to protect me and I want to (get) back to co-parenting Dream."
ROB WILL NOT FIGHT CHYNA
Kardashian did not appear at Monday's hearing. His lawyer Robert Shapiro apologised on his client's behalf outside the courthouse.
"We apologise and have offered our regrets for what has taken place over the past couple of days," Shapiro said. "And now we move forward to do one thing and one thing only: Whatever's in the best interest of the child."
He said the former couple remains focused on their daughter, who he said is currently being cared for by Kardashian.
"They're working this out among themselves as good parents," Shapiro said.
He said Kardashian agreed to the issuance of a temporary restraining order.
Ahead of her court appearance, Blac Chyna appeared on Good Morning America on Monday to talk about Rob's actions.
Speaking to GMA's Linsey Davis, Chyna said she was completely "devastated" when she saw what Rob had shared on Instagram and Twitter.
"I was devastated, of course, I'm like how could someone post these pictures of me. Like this is someone I trusted, I just felt [betrayed]."
When asked what made her decide to take legal action Chyna responded that it comes down to the fact that Rob may not respect her but he does have to respect the law.
Chyna ended her interview with a message for women who may be going what she is going through. She said: "You're not the only one that's probably going through something, so I feel as though if one person speaks up hopefully it will be a domino effect."
