The reality star's attorney announced on Friday that she will be seeking a temporary restraining order against Kardashian. Celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom told Buzzfeed News that she will be in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday filing paperwork to that the order in place so that Kardashian "will be forced to conform his conduct to the law."
"Revenge porn is illegal in California," Bloom said. "We are seeking an order barring him from future cyber bullying and harassment of Chyna."
Bloom confirmed this information in a tweet, writing, "I represent Blac Chyna. I just gave Rob Kardashian notice that we'll be in the court Monday seeking restraining orders against him. More to come."

A former federal prosecutor said Kardashian's post could be a violation of California's revenge-porn law, especially if Chyna states the photos were for personal use only and that she suffered distress as a result.
If Kardashian is charged with revenge-porn, he can face a fine and up to six months in jail.
