Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are doing whatever they can to stay safe while at Paris Fashion Week. And that means paying more francs for extra security.
The couple is reportedly nervous after Kim was nearly knocked to the floor on Thursday, the innocent victim of a kerfuffle outside the Balmain show.
Video of the event, claimed by celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk, went viral. In it, Kardashian appears to stumble briefly after a person lunges toward her feet, when bodyguards push her out of the way. They neutralize someone who remains off camera. Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, can be heard yelling “Stop it!” Sediuk, a former Ukrainian television reporter, told The Associated Press in an email that he is the person in the video, and that he’d only been trying to hug the reality star.
Sediuk has gained a reputation for outlandish pranks. In May, he was arrested and spent two days in jail after jostling with Brad Pitt at a film premiere in Los Angeles. He also crawled underneath America Ferrera’s dress at a film premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
