Just days after Gigi Hadid faced off with Ukranian "prankster" Vitalii Sediuk during Milan Fashion Week, Kim Kardashian came face to face with him in Paris on Wednesday. The encounter took place during Paris Fashion Week while the reality star was making her way to L'Avenue restaurant when he came up behind her, as you can see in video posted online.

Kim's bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, stepped in quickly and tackled him to the ground before he could bother the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star any further. Kim later applauded her bodyguard for his quick action.

According to Us Weekly, Kim previously came into contact with Vitalii during Paris Fashion Week in 2014 when he nearly knocked her to the ground while she was attending the event with Kris Jenner and Kanye West.
In a statement released last week, Vitalii explained why he set his sights on Gigi in Milan. "While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion. By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram. You can call it a manifest or a protest. This is also a wake-up call for Anna Wintour, who turned Vogue into a tabloid by putting Kardashians and other similar celebrities on a cover of a well respected magazine."
No word yet on why he chose Kim as his most recent target.
