Last month, Kim Kardashian was attacked on the red carpet at Paris Fashion Week—notorious prankster Vitalii Sediuk grabbed her legs as she exited her vehicle, pulling her to the ground, the Independent reports. "I hope Kim is OK and won't be mad at me," the former Ukrainian TV presenter said afterward. Other stars who've been targeted on the red carpet:

  • The same prankster attacked Brad Pitt as he walked the Maleficent red carpet in Hollywood in May, reportedly hitting Pitt in the face. Pitt later called him a "nutter."
  • Also in May, Sediuk dove under America Ferrera's dress on the Cannes red carpet.
  • In January, the ex-reporter thrust his face into Bradley Cooper's crotch at the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, E! reports.
  • And in 2012, he kissed Will Smith at the Men in Black 3 premiere in Moscow, which resulted in Smith slapping him.
