Rob Kardashian Accused of Stealing Photog's Memory Card Containing Shirtless Pics of Him
Temper, temper! Reality TV personality Rob Kardashian is under investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department after allegedly swiping the memory card right out of a photographer's camera on the street Wednesday.The "token male" Kardashian was fingered as the perp after a female paparazzo photographer said he grabbed her camera and yanked out the memory card while she was photographing him in the area of South Santa Monica Boulevard and Moreno Drive, according to the BHPD.
The photographer says Kardashian struck her in the face.
You mad, (little) bro?
TMZ reports the photos being taken showed Kardashian shirtless. The gossip site points out Kardashian is "in the middle of a big weight loss program ... and he's obviously trying to keep his bulge under wraps." (Not to be confused with "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm's bulge, mmmkay?)
The photo agency says Kardashian took off, but promised to pay for the memory card later.
