Kim Kardashian was nearly taken to the ground by a male assailant as she attended a Paris Fashion Week event on Thursday.
The reality star was in the event with husband Kanye West and mother Kris Jenner and were swarmed by paparazzi and fans as they made their way to the Balmain Show from their car.
At a point, a man from the crowd lunged at Kim, grabbing her legs and almost taking her to the ground. But security rushed to her rescue after subduing the dude, safely escorting her and her entourage into the building.
TMZ reports that Kim’s attacker may be Vitalii Sediuk – the Ukrainian TV journalist and prankster who got fired from his job and banned from Hollywood events after attacking Brad Pitt during Maleficient premiere earlier in the year – because his rep is claiming responsibility for tackling her. The site also reported that Sediuk was held down by paparazzi as Kim was being escorted to the building.
Sediuk, for the record, has vowed to stop pranking celebs after his arrest for the Brad Pitt stunt.
