Kendall Jenner comforts young fan after paparazzi clash
Model Kendall Jenner helped to console a young fan after he was pushed over in a crowd in New York City.
Kim Kardashian's younger sister was enjoying a day out with her runway pal Gigi Hadid on Tuesday (29Mar16), when they were spotted admiring puppies at a pet store in Manhattan's trendy Chelsea neighbourhood.
A large crowd of onlookers and paparazzi gathered outside the store to catch a glimpse of the models, and as they tried to exit the shop, those in the scrum began pushing and shoving, and a little boy was knocked over.
Kendall saw the drama unfold and promptly kneeled down to check on the kid, and in video footage obtained by TMZ.com, she can be seen talking to the tot and smiling before taking a photo with him.
The 20-year-old beauty then tried to make her way to a waiting car, but as she did, she was pictured raising her right arm, appearing to push one overzealous snapper's camera away from her face as he got a little too close for comfort.
Kendall, who has regularly expressed her disdain for the paparazzi, has yet to comment on her latest photographer run-in, but news of the incident emerges days after she defended herself for apparently punching another photographer while in Paris in early March (16).
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who was also accompanied by Gigi on that occasion, was accused of lashing out at the cameraman before one of her bodyguards intervened, holding the girls back as he scolded the shutterbug.
"Even though you know about my anger towards the paparazzi - I didn't touch him," she wrote in a recent post on her app as she addressed the Paris encounter. "Gigi, security and I were walking out together in a conga-line formation. All of a sudden, this paparazzi (sic) took his camera and started taking pictures right below my face. It was in my personal space, like centimeters from my body. I was so annoyed. All I ask for is just a bubble of space to breathe, and he disrespected that."
"So, I grabbed his camera and pushed it away across my body, sort of trying to push and pull it out of his hand at the same time," she continued. "Of course, that side motion with my arm is why all of the pictures look like punches were flying. They totally weren't! I just wanted him and his camera out of my face!"
