He strikes again. Kim Kardashian was nearly pushed to the ground outside of the Balmain fashion show in Paris on Thursday, Sept. 25, after celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk pulled her hair and attempted to shove her down. An eyewitness tells Us Weekly that the scene outside the runway show venue was predictably mayhem.
As seen in footage from the incident, Kardashian, 33, exited her vehicle from the right as her husband Kanye West exited from the left side. Mom Kris Jenner had just stepped out from the front passenger’s seat, when Sediuk, 25, lunged after Kardashian.
Footage taken by x17online shows security immediately rushing in and one guard physically picking up the reality star to get her away from Sediuk.
Photos taken after the incident feature West, 37, protectively leading his shaken-up wife through the crowd and in to the Balmain presentation, where Kendall Jenner was walking.
Sediuk, a former Ukrainian journalist, was fired by his television network 1+1 TV this past June, after physically accosting Brad Pitt at the May 28 premiere of Maleficent in L.A.
Sediuk’s crazy red carpet antics have been well-chronicled throughout the years: He was caught climbing underneath America Ferrera’s gown at Cannes, and in January, he hugged Bradley Cooper around his waist at the SAG Awards. In May 2012, he attempted to kiss Will Smith on the face at the Men In Black 3 premiere, which warranted an angry reaction from the actor.
Following the Pitt incident, Sediuk attempted to reason with Mario Lopez on Extra why he pulls such risky pranks on celebrities. “I don’t think [there’s] something wrong with me,” Sediuk said. “I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before. It’s something different, controversial, extraordinary and it’s hard to explain. I’m normal, at least I believe so.”
