Blac Chyna was granted a restraining order against Rob Kardashian on Monday, after Chyna’s ex-fiance shared private images of her on Instagram and Twitter last week.
Following the 29-year-old model’s day in court, her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, sat down with ET at her office in Woodland Hills, California, where she opened up about how she says her client feels following her successful bid for a restraining order, and what the future holds for the former couple.
“She walked out with a big smile on her face, she gave me lots of hugs and said, ‘Thank you, Lisa,’ and that was very gratifying to me,” Bloom shared. “I think it was like a huge weight was lifted off of her shoulders.”
While Kardashian was ordered to stay away from Chyna, the two will still be sharing custody of their 8-month-old daughter, Dream.
“Chyna is not concerned about Dream being around Rob. She has said he’s a good father, there are nannies around when the baby is with him and she hasn’t had any reason to be concerned,” Bloom explained. “We did not ask for the baby to be part of the restraining order… We just want him to stay away from her and to stop cyberbullying her.”
Apart from the physical distance Kardashian is obligated to respect, the restraining order forbids him from posting anything online about Chyna that is “of personal nature,” and the judge ordered that Kardashian is not to post any photos of Chyna, Dream or Chyna’s 4-year-old son, King, whom she shares with ex-fiancé Tyga — who later went on to date Kardashian’s sister, Kylie Jenner.
The high-profile attorney, who has represented numerous celebrities in the past, said that, at this moment in time, Chyna will not be pursuing criminal charges against her ex for posting the private photos or her previous allegations of domestic abuse.
“For now, Chyna has said she does not want to go to the police or pursue the criminal route,” Bloom shared. “She hired me to go in and get those domestic violence restraining orders, which we did immediately, and if Rob lives up to them, then it will be OK.”
“Chyna is aware that Rob is the father of her baby. She is not trying to start a war,” she continued. “She just wants herself to be protected and she wants to have some clarity about what the rules are going to be going forward [in regard to] co-parenting.”
According to Bloom, their next step in mitigating the situation between the two parents is to work out a “formalized visitation schedule.”
“They have been [sharing custody] informally, and it’s about 50/50,” Bloom said. “But now, given everything that’s happened, we think now it’s time to have something clear, in writing, about visitation. [But] we want it to stay about the same.”
Last week, Kardashian leveled a number of accusations against Chyna online, and also shared a number of nude photos of his ex to Instagram. The 30-year-old reality star’s Instagram account was suspended in response to his actions. He reposted the photos to Twitter.
According to Bloom, Chyna has received a slew of hate and criticism following Kardashian’s posts.
“Ever since Wednesday, she’s gotten so much ugliness and so many people have posted vile, disgusting things about her online,” Bloom said. “It’s very sad to me that people trash Chyna because she has a past as an exotic dancer. Strippers are human beings. She’s gone on to have a very impressive career. She supports her two children on her own.”
For Bloom, a great deal of this case comes down to Chyna having a right to choose how she lives her life and how she gets to present herself to the world, without being judged or taken advantage of.
“If she wants to choose to be a dancer, she gets to make that choice. If she wants to run a business, that is her choice. If she wants to be sexy and provocative in photos one day, that is her choice, and if she doesn’t want private photos released another day, that is also her choice,” Bloom said. “I’m very tired of all the shaming of women that goes on in this culture because they may have chosen at one time to be sexy or even semi-nude. It is our bodies, it is our choice at all times. I’ve even said that to her when she felt bad about this over the last week.”
With the restraining order in place, and custody negotiations possibly on the horizon, Bloom says Chyna is still hoping to get a real apology from Kardashian.
“Rob’s attorney, on his behalf, said that he’s apologized,” Bloom said. “I think a real man does an apology himself… I think the appropriate place for him to issue that apology would be on the same social media where he attacked her.”
Bloom also said that no one in the Kardashian family has reached out to Chyna or her.
Currently, Kardashian is being represented by attorney Robert Shapiro — who famously worked with Kardashian’s father, Robert Kardashian Sr., as part of O.J. Simpson’s “Dream Team” when he was on trial for murder in 1995.
“We apologize and have offered our regrets for what has taken place in the last few days,” Shapiro said on his client’s behalf while speaking with the press outside the courtroom on Monday. “[Kardashian and Chyna are] working this out among themselves as good parents.”
Shapiro said that his client has agreed to the issuance of the temporary restraining order, which remains in effect until their follow-up hearing scheduled for Aug. 8.
