The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, was arriving at L'Avenue restaurant when Sediuk, 27, ran over and tried to attack her. At one point, he kissed Kardashian's butt, bending over and puckering up near her famed derrière.

Luckily, Kardashian's longtime bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, quickly stepped in and tackled the prankster to the ground.

Shortly after, the social media mogul tweeted, "My security @PascalDuvier is a G."

This isn't the first time Sediuk, who frequently accosts celebs at film premieres and awards ceremonies, has launched himself at Kardashian. In September 2014, he nearly knocked her to the ground as she headed to a Paris Fashion Week event with husband Kanye West and mom Kris Jenner.

Sediuk (who has also ambushed Bradley Cooper, Miranda Kerr and Will Smith) opened up to The Hollywood Reporter in 2014 to break his silence on the attack. "I was very cautious because I know she is a woman — so I kind of hugged her legs," he explained. "I already had a bad experience with America Ferrera. It's different with men."

The Ukrainian journalist infamously crawled under Ferrera's gown at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Days later, he was arrested by the LAPD after punching Brad Pitt in the face at Angelina Jolie's Maleficent premiere. Sediuk was subsequently banned from Hollywood events.

Last week, Sediuk grabbed Hadid, 21, from behind and lifted her up in yet another frightening incident. In a video captured by nearby photographers, she was heard yelling, "Let go of me! Who the f–k are you? You piece of s–t!"

Hadid later took to Twitter to voice her frustration, writing, "[I] had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick though."
