Kim Kardashian posts topless photo after narrowly avoiding serial prankster

Kim Kardashian brushed off being targeted by serial celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk by posting a topless photo just hours after the incident.

The reality TV star, 35, had a run-in with former Ukrainian television reporter Vitalii, who appeared to try and kiss her bottom after approaching her in Paris.

The incident, which happened outside a restaurant during Paris Fashion Week, came just days after Vitalii grabbed model Gigi Hadid in Milan.

In a post on Twitter, Kim shared the image of her body with the caption: “Parisian Vibes”

Kim’s make-up artist posted a video of the incident near the L’Avenue restaurant on Wednesday to his Instagram account.

It shows Kim making her way through a crowd of paparazzi past her black car as Vitalii swoops in and appears to attempt to kiss Kim’s bottom.

Security staff are seen reacting immediately and pulling the prankster to the floor.

Paris police said they had no immediate indication that a formal complaint had been filed.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Vitalii confirmed he perpetrated the attack as a protest “to popularise natural beauty among teenage girls”.

He also claimed that it was not premeditated — and it was a “coincidence” that both he and Kim happened to be at the same spot.

Vitalii grabbed model Gigi at Milan Fashion Week, saying it was a form of protest against the use of celebrity models.
