Kim Kardashian’s 'attacker' apologises for his actions
Kim Kardashian’s attacker has apologised for nearly pulling the reality star to the ground when he arrived at the Balmain show during Paris Fashion Week.
The notorious Ukranian prankster Vitalii Sediuk flung himself around Kim’s feet and tackled her as she exited the car, but insisted he “didn’t mean any harm”.
"I hope Kim is OK and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm,” he told MailOnline. “Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a Goddess!'
A video of the incident showed Vitalii waiting at the front of the crowd as Kim and Kanye’s car pulled up in front of the show venue.
As he launched his attack, Kim was seen falling into the arms of a nearby bodyguard as her security team battled to protect her.
The mother-of-one narrowly avoided falling flat on the floor, with her security then quickly ushering her, Kanye and Kim’s mother Kris Jenner into the venue.
Kanye was later seen looking angry and upset by the incident, before comforting his clearly shaken wife.
Vitalii is famous in his native Ukraine for his red carpet pranks.
After being charged with the attack, Vitalii was sentenced to 20 days of community service.
However, Vitalii insists he never threw the alleged punch, saying: “I never hit, I never punched, I never slapped Brad Pitt in the face. This is absolutely false information.”
