A WOMAN threw a mystery powder on Kim Kardashian in the lobby of a West Hollywood hotel where the television personality was hosting an event, police said.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to the unidentified hotel on North San Vicente Boulevard.
Deputy Peter Gomez said the woman who allegedly threw the powder was detained by hotel security and later released at the scene. Mr Gomez said Ms Kardashian (inset) told the deputies she did not want to press charges against the woman and a non-criminal battery report was taken.
Mr Gomez said paramedics were called to the hotel, but reality TV star Ms Kardashian refused medical treatment.
He said she returned to her room, removed the powder from her hair and clothing and returned to the event.
