Rob Kardashian has reportedly been charged with battery and petty theft following an alleged altercation with a photographer at a Los Angeles gym back in March.

According to TMZ, the reality star has been charged with one count of each crime, both of which are misdemeanours.

E! News reports that the photographer, Andra Viak, filed a civil suit against Kardashian last month after claiming the TV personality struck her when she tried to take snaps of him in a public parking lot. She claims Rob also took off with the memory card from her camera.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, George Gallegos, told TMZ: “While this case is still in the preliminary stage, it is clear from our investigation that Robert Kardashian’s violent behavior and his use of force towards Ms. Viak was completely unjustified.”

According to the website, Rob claims that he lashed out because Viak was trespassing on private property in order to get a shirtless snap.
