Wow. When Rob Kardashian decided to lawyer up for his revenge porn case against Blac Chyna, he kept it in the family. Rob hired Robert Shapiro, who worked with his father on the OJ Simpson murder trial!
Considering that Robert Shapiro, 74, worked side-by-side with the late Robert Kardashian Sr. as part of the “dream team” that got OJ Simpson, 70, acquitted for murder, it makes sense that Rob Kardashian, 30, would hire Mr. Shapiro to represent him in his legal battle against Blac Chyna, 29. Robert will speak on behalf of Rob during a July 10 court hearing, sources tell TMZ. Blac’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, 55, will request a temporary restraining order at this hearing, one that Robert will not oppose (as they are routinely granted to alleged victims when he or she claims they have been abused, according to TMZ.)
Robert’s main role in this hearing is to convince the judge that Rob would no longer attack Blac on social media, sources tell TMZ. Robert will also assure the judge that his client will refrain from posting “intimate pics of Chyna.” Rob will also stop sharing medical information or engage in any future slut shaming. Rob better hope that Robert works his legal magic, because this hearing will likely have an impact on his future custody battle over 8-month-old Dream Kardashian.
A temporary restraining order will likely keep Rob and Dream apart for “at least three weeks,” David Pisarra, a California Divorce Attorney EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. Blac could request “Supervised Visitation” for Rob, meaning that he would need an approved professional or an additional family member to be with him whenever he sees his baby girl. Yet, due to his behavior online, “Rob may lose any custody he has of Dream as a result,” David tells HollywoodLife.com. Rob better hope Robert can work his legal magic or it may be a while before he sees his daughter again.
Though Rob might have gotten some good news ahead of this hearing. Blac said she was going to continue her joint custody arrangement with Rob during a sit-down interview with Good Morning America. “I talked to Rob about everything, I talked to him,” she told GMA, adding that it doesn’t matter if Rob doesn’t respect her – he still has to “respect the law.” Will the law force Rob to pay Chyna millions of dollars for publishing her nudes? Will he get punished even more for publishing “revenge porn?” Only time will tell.
What do you think about Rob hiring Robert Shapiro, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it’s a good move? Do you think he’ll go to jail for posting “revenge porn?”
