Rob Kardashian has pled “not guilty” after a female paparazzo accused him of battery and petty theft following her attempt to take a photograph of him shirtless.

The 26-year-old reality star was accused of the two misdemeanour crimes by a female photographer following an incident that took place in March.

According to TMZ, Rob allegedly confiscated and damaged the paparazzo’s camera equipment. Following the incident he apparently told her he would refund the cost of her kit.

He was represented by Robert Shapiro in court, the lawyer partner of his late father Robert Kardashian.

The attorney died of esophageal cancer in 2003 but is famed for helping get sportsman O.J. Simpson off the hook after he was accused of murder.

Rob appeared in a Beverly Hills courtroom with the highly skilled legal representative and stood in front of judge Marsha Revel.

It is the same magistrate who actress Lindsay Lohan faced. During her time in court Lindsay displayed a fingernail with the words “f**k you” inscribed in the design on her middle finger.

According to the website Marsha is known for striking plea deals with her defendants.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is also accused of getting into another violent confrontation at a West Hollywood gym.

According to a robbery report filed by Andra Vaik, Rob was upset when she began taking pictures of him at the facility and a confrontation erupted.

He then allegedly took Ms. Vaik’s camera and removed the memory card.

Rob previously dismissed allegations made by Vaik.

He claims the she was hiding in her car in the gym’s garage and waited to take a snap when Rob took his shirt off. The reality star has struggled with his weight as of late and is believed to be tipping the scales at 240lbs.
