Where Kim Kardashian goes — or for that matter ANY of the Kardashians go — a stampede of pushy paparazzi are sure to follow.
That certainly was the case Thursday as Kardashian, hubby Kanye West and momanger Kris Jenner arrived at a Paris Fashion Week show. But it appears that rather than a legit photographer, Kim K. was tackled by notorious Ukrainian red carpet nut-case and prankster Vitalii Sediuk — who tried to pull the reality TV queen to the ground.
Security quickly subdued the guy and hustled the Kardashian party into the building, but not before it obviously shook up both Kim and her mother.
Sediuk, who claimed credit for the stunt, is famous for previous similar incidents — one of which I personally witnessed on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. That was when he dove over the barricade and slipped underneath actress America Ferrara’s gown, as she arrived for the premiere of “How To Train Your Dragon 2.”
Sediuk’s other weird red carpet moves have included kissing Will Smith and grabbing the crotch of Bradley Cooper.
