What Is Revenge Porn?

There are a lot of emotions that couples go through when they are on the brink of a divorce. Feelings of hurt and betrayal by one spouse can often times lead to a desire to retaliate. We recently saw an example of this on the internet when Rob Kardashian posted pictures of his ex-fiancé Blac Chyna online. This apparently was due to an allegation that Blac Chyna had cheated on him. The media frenzy and backlash that followed occupied headlines for the remainder of the day.

The term revenge porn refers to a new and disturbing trend of people distributing naked or compromising photos of their ex-partners. Besides being an invasion of someone's privacy, some states, including Georgia, have made it a criminal act to do so. The problem has become so common that in May there were a reported 50,000 potential cases of revenge porn where disgruntled exes had posted naked pictures on Facebook.

It is not known at this time whether Rob Kardashian will face criminal charges for posting pictures of Blac Chyna. As of know, it appears as though the only repercussion has been the shutting down of his Instagram account. The important thing to remember, especially if the custody of children or possession of marital assets is at stake, is that cases of revenge or retaliation of any kind aren't looked at favorably by the court. In fact, bad behavior can often make a family and divorce lawyer's job difficult when presenting your case to the court.
