Rob Kardashian Charged With Battery, TheftBy: Sean Patterson - May 8, 2013
Rob Kardashian, brother of the famous reality TV Kardashian sisters, is now facing legal repercussions from a run-in with a paparazzo earlier this year.
According to an E! News report, Kardashian appeared in court today and plead not guilty to one count of misdemeanor battery and one count of misdemeanor petty theft. The reality TV star was released on his own recognizance.
Back in March, Kardashian was accused of stealing a camera memory card from a photographer’s camera. The incident happened near an L.A. gym, when the paparazzo was reportedly photographing Kardashian with his shirt off. Kardashian had allegedly claimed that he would pay for the memory card at a later date before taking off with it, but it seems the photographer didn’t consider that a fair deal.
The photographer, named Andra Vaik, sued Kardashian earlier this month over the incident.
Kardashian is reportedly being represented in the case by Robert Shapiro, a lawyer famous for being part of O.J. Simpson’s murder trial defense team alongside Kardashian’s father, Robert Kardashian.
Rob Kardashian has not commented directly on his legal troubles through his social media accounts. His last two tweets have been an ad for a friend’s debut album and a short nighty-night message:
The prestige. Goodnight
