Kim Kardashian was targeted by prankster Vitalii Sediuk on Thursday, September 29, but now according to US Weekly the reality TV star plans to take legal action against him.
"Kim handled it very well and was initially unaware of what had actually happened. She assumed it was a photographer stepping too close.” the insider explains to Us. “By the time she turned around, her bodyguard had him on the ground.”
The source continues: “She quickly realized it something more serious when she turned around. The first time Vitalii did this to her it was really terrifying. He tried to tackle her and left her feeling very rattled.”
As previously reported, Kardashian, 35, strolled through the crowd of fans and photographers before Sediuk, 27, snuck up on the reality star and appeared to attempt to kiss her on her bottom.
This isn’t the first time Sediuk has targeted Kim, in 2014 he almost knocked her to the ground after the Balmain show during Paris Fashion Week.
While Kardashian took to Twitter following the incident to honour longtime security guard Pascal Duvier, it appears Kardashian is making it a priority to seek legal action against her attacker.
“She plans on pressing charges and has reached out to French authorities to file a complaint,” the source tells Us. “This is the second time he has done this and expect he’ll try again on her or someone else. She has no idea what his motivation is.”
