LAWYERS FOR REALITY TV star Blac Chyna have said she is considering ‘all legal options’ after her former fiancé Rob Kardashian shared explicit photos of her online.

Kardashian’s Instagram account was shut down on Wednesday after a flurry of posts attacking his former fiancée.

In the posts he accused her of infidelity and posted explicit photos of her.

In one post to Instagram, Kardashian shared a screenshot of a conversation purportedly between himself and Chyna in which he urged her to send him an explicit photo.

An explicit photo is sent in response and can be seen in the screenshot. The image was posted to Instagram by Kardashian with the following caption:

This is from Chyna yesterday to me. I never been so disrespected in my life. I just bought her 250k of jewellery yesterday.

Further posts were uploaded to the social media website before they were deleted and his account was suspended.

Kardashian then proceeded to make further claims about Chyna on Twitter and posted further explicit material on that site.

The images were removed about 30 minutes later but his Twitter account remains active.

In a statement to ABC News, a lawyer for Chyna said they are considering their response to the release of the photos.

“We are considering all legal options and recourses at this time,” Walter Mosley said.

So-called revenge porn is a crime under California law after it was criminalised in 2013.

The law states that it is illegal to distribute sexual images or videos of someone without their consent with the knowledge that it will cause them “serious emotional distress”.

The complainant would be required to file a police report for such charges to be brought.

Kardashian and Chyna announced their engagement in April 2016 and starred in a reality show about their relationship. The couple split up a month later.

Their daughter, Dream, was born last November.
