Celebrities are often the target of paparazzi and stalkers. Some keep their distance although remain annoying all the same. Yet others prove to be a nuisance and are threatening, as the Kim Kardashian attacker showed.
The reality TV star is no stranger to the spotlight. She stars in Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she is a sought-after product endorser and she is the wife of Kanye West. Hence, it is not surprising for people to follow her. However, one celebrity prankster got too close for comfort.
Who is this infamous Kim Kardashian attacker?
1. What is his name?
The celebrity prankster who thought he could get up close and personal with Kim Kardashian is Vitalii Sediuk.
2. What does he do?
Vitalii Sediuk is a Ukrainian journalist. He is infamous for his unsavory stunts involving some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities.
3. Who has he victimized?
His list of victims would be impressive if not for his undesirable actions. US Weekly counted Miranda Kerr, Will Smith and Bradley Cooper among them. However, his worst encounters involved America Ferrera and Brad Pitt in 2014.
At that time, he made his way underneath America’s gown at the Cannes Film Festival. According to him it was a bad experience. Moreover, it taught him a lesson. However, it was apparently not enough reason for him to stop.
“I was very cautious because I know she is a woman — so I kind of hugged her legs. I already had a bad experience with America Ferrera. It’s different with men,” Sediuk said.
At the premiere of Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, he punched Brad Pitt, hence his ban from any Hollywood event.
4. How did he fare with model Gigi Hadid?
The Kim Kardashian attacker likely met his match when the supermodel fought back. Though caught by surprise, Gigi Hadid managed to throw in a few hits his way.
5. Not his first time with Kim Kardashian
This is his second round with the reality TV star. Apparently, they had an earlier run-in back in 2014 at Paris Fashion Week. Thus, it would seem Kim won this round.
