Rob Kardashian
stole a photog's camera memory card Wednesday because she dared to trespass on private property where he was changing his clothes ... at least that's what Rob is telling friends.

TMZ broke the story ... Rob manhandled the photog and snatched her camera's memory card from her.  The cops have launched a robbery investigation.

As for why Rob did it ... he's telling people he had just gone to a private, West Hollywood gym owned by famed trainer Gunnar Peterson

Rob is telling friends he was changing into his gym clothes inside the garage ... in an area that is not visible from the street. Rob claims the photog somehow entered the garage -- which is caged off to the public -- members must get out of their car and enter the code to get inside. 

Rob says as he was changing, he noticed the photog inside the garage, snapping pics. It's unclear how the photog got through the cage.

Someone who manages the gym told TMZ ... they train big celebs and the photogs have a custom of waiting on public property to get their shot. That makes sense, because the code to the cage presumably keeps non-members out.

FYI ... Rob's story almost certainly does not create a defense to robbery, but prosecutors may back off if a jury would be inclined to hate the victim.

Its funny how everyone is saying he could have changed in the locker room. He could have but since it's obvious after the fact that the paparazzi was waiting she would have still tried to get her shot. They're stalkers and it's ridiculous. The celebrities can't even leave their house without being swarmed.

I guess his sisters are getting too much attention. Such a FANCY, PRIVATE gym that one has to change their clothes in the parking garage?? Attention getter, loose some weight fat ass. Did the article say he manhandled a female photog?

I bet Kris Jenner is smacking her lips & grinning that smirk she always has,at all the media coverage, gossip sites, magazine covers, her brood has been dominating the last couple of weeks. All I can say is,Americans must have awfully boring lives to have to glorify this bunch! LOL!

Boycott anything and everything Kardashian and bring this reign of terror to a halt.

So...prosecutors back off if they think the jury would hate the victim? Doesn't it really mean prosecutors back off if there is a celebrity (and I use the term loosely) involved?

Best part of this is HARVEY said on TMZ live that the pap was "laying in wait for Rob" which leads one to believe the pap was in the garage BEFORE Rob.
.
So let's ask the obvious: HOW did the pap know to be in THAT garage at THAT time to get pix of BLOB changing? Smells like a poorly crafted PR stunt if you ask me.
.
Another FAILURE by The Pimp to stay relevant. Is Rob the BLOB the newest KASH-KOW?

So if you are a disgusting human being you dont get held accoutnable for things like assault and robbery? All the KArdashians need to learn that if you decide to make your entire life a publicity stunt that you then can't go bezerk when you dont like the publicity. Rob cant decide what pictures of himself get released anymore then Kimmy can stop people froms aying she is FAT. Grow up children sometimes the truth hurts.
