Kim Kardashian shaken up by encounter with prankster Vitalii Sediuk
Kim Kardashian became the latest victim of Russian prankster Vitalii Sediuk on Wednesday (28Sep16) when he planted a kiss on her famous rear in Paris, France.
The practical joker star slipped past security as Kim stepped out of a car in the city to a throng of paparazzi, bent down and kissed her bum.
In footage posted online, Kardashian was clearly worried as she was jostled about while her minders quickly pounced on the prankster, pinning him to the floor.
Kim, her husband Kanye West and her mum Kris Jenner quickly left the scene of the drama.
It's not clear if Vitalii was arrested.
The Russian mayhem maker, who was once arrested for lunging at Brad Pitt during a Hollywood premiere, pulled off a similar prank in Milan, Italy earlier this month (Sep16), when he grabbed model Gigi Hadid's bottom.
The 21-year-old model was filmed elbowing a man, who was later confirmed as Sediuk, after he lifted her off the ground as she made her way to a car. In video footage of the encounter, Gigi can be heard shouting at Vitalii, demanding he let her go.
Opening up about the scary Milan moment in a piece she wrote for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter, Gigi wrote: "I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that. Since then, I hadn't been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed me - it wasn't a choice. I do have that fighter in me.
"Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did. If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation."
