Blac Chyna says she was “devastated” by the explicit photos that her ex, Rob Kardashian, posted on social media last week.
In an interview with ABC News that aired Monday before she asked a judge in downtown Los Angeles to grant her temporary restraining order against Kardashian, Chyna also said she felt betrayed.
“I was devastated,” she said. “Of course. I’m like, 'How could somebody post these pictures of me?' This is a person that I trusted.”
Chyna appeared alongside her attorney, Lisa Bloom, who has said the social media tirade on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, broke California's revenge porn law and wants a judge to order Kardashian to stop cyber-bullying her client.
One graphic post included a screenshot of an alleged text conversation between Kardashian and Chyna that contained a photo of her exposed genital area.
Violating California's revenge-porn law, which makes it illegal to post explicit photos of someone without their permission as a form of revenge, is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine and up to six months in jail.
Bloom told ABC she thinks Kardashian, who did not appear in court, broke that law when he lashed out at his ex and mother of his child on social media last week.
“It is a crime to post pictures like this,” she said. “And if you do it, I hope that the full impact of the law rains down on you.”
Chyna added: “The moral of the story is he doesn’t respect me, so if you can't respect me, you have to respect the law.”

A judge was expected to decide Monday on whether to grant Chyna the temporary restraining order.
Kardashian and Chyna went public in January 2016, then got engaged a few months later, weeks before announcing that they were expecting a baby. Their daughter, Dream Renée, was born in November.
But their relationship, featured in their own reality show, Rob & Chyna, faltered, and in February they reportedly called off their engagement.
Still, Kardashian last week accused Chyna of taking drugs and cheating on him with multiple men. She, in turn, accused him on Snapchat of being physically abusive.
