■ A court com­mis­sioner on Mon­day is­sued a tem­po­rary rest rain­ing or­der against Rob K ar­dash ian in re­sponse to the re­al­ity tele­vi­sion star’s post­ing of ex­plicit im­ages of his ex-fi­ancee on so­cial me­dia last week. Los An­ge­les Su­pe­rior Court Com­mis­sioner James Blan­carte is­sued the or­der in re­sponse to fil­ings by Kar­dashian’s ex- fi­ancee, Blac Chyna, who also claims he hit her in the thigh ear­lier this year, knock­ing her down and leav­ing her bruised. “Rob has been vi­o­lent with me in the past and I am afraid to be around him,” Chyna, whose real name is An­gela White, wrote in court doc­u­ments filed Mon­day in Los An­ge­les. The or­der bars Kar­dashian from con­tact­ing Chyna or com­ing within 100 yards of her home, car or work­place. The or­der also pro­hibits him from post­ing im­ages on­line of Chyna or the in­fant daugh­ter they share. Chyna’s at­tor­ney Lisa Bloom de­scribed the hear­ing as “a com­plete and to­tal vic­tory.” The or­der will re­main in ef­fect un­til an Aug. 8 hear­ing. Chyna sought a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der on Mon­day, less than a week af­ter Kar­dashian went on a tirade against her on In­sta­gram and Twit­ter, in­clud­ing post­ing ex­plicit im­ages of her. Blan­carte sealed ex­hibits in the case, cit­ing their ex­plicit na­ture. Bloom has ac­cused Kar­dashian of cy­ber­bul­ly­ing. Blan­carte said his pri­mary con­cern was the for­mer cou­ple’s in­fant child. Bloom said in court that nan­nies would han­dle cus­tody trans­fers while the or­der is in place. Kar­dashian did not ap­pear at Mon­day’s hear­ing. His lawyer Robert Shapiro apol­o­gized on his client’s be­half out­side the court­house. “We apol­o­gize and have of­fered our re­grets for what has taken place over the past cou­ple of days,” Shapiro said. “And now we move for­ward to do one thing and one thing only: What­ever’s in the best in­ter­est of the child.” Kar­dashian is the younger brother of Kim Kar­dashian and ap­peared on sev­eral sea­sons of the fam­ily’s re­al­ity se­ries, Keep­ing Up with the Kar­dashi­ans.

■ Pat­ton Oswalt is de­fend­ing his en­gage­ment from on­line crit­ics who say the co­me­dian is get­ting mar­ried too soon af­ter his wife’s death last year. Oswalt shared a link Satur­day to a post de­fend­ing him by Erica Ro­man, a blog­ger who lost her hus­band around the same time that Oswalt’s wife, Michele McNa­mara, died in her sleep in April 2016. Oswalt writes that he felt “rage” over the crit­i­cism. He says he ini­tially de­cided to ig­nore crit­ics he calls “grub worms,” but that Ro­man ar­tic­u­lated his feel­ings bet­ter than he could have. Ro­man wrote in her post that any­one crit­i­ciz­ing Oswalt isn’t en­ti­tled to an opin­ion be­cause they haven’t gone through his ex­pe­ri­ence. Oswalt an­nounced his en­gage­ment to ac­tress Mered­ith Salenger last week.
