After troubling celebrities like Adele and Will Smith in the past, serial prankster Vitalli Seduik is back in action. This time around the notorious Ukrainian journalist targeted reality star Kim Kardashian during the Balmian show at the Paris Fashion Week (PFW).

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star had stepped out of her car onto the red carpet at the Balmian show when Sediuk grabbed her, reported TMZ.

As he tried to shove her down, she clutched on to her bodyguard and asked for help from her mom Kris Jenner and husband Kanye West. However, the photographers held Sediuk down until Kardashian went inside. No arrests were made. 

Later on, Sediuk posted a selfie from the scene of the attack on his Instagram account with a caption, "Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a Goddess!"

When approached by the media, he revealed that he played the prank as a protest against the US. "The prank with Kim was my protest that US banned me from entering the country," Sediuk told E! News.

"I hope Kim is ok and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm. Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a Goddess!" he added.

The Ukrainian prankster was banned from entering the US early this month after he approached Brad Pitt during the premiere of "Maleficent" in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, a source close to Sediuk revealed that he had no intention of attacking Kardashian. "The information about Vitalii pulling Kim's hair is untrue. Vitalii hugged Kim which caused a big crowding with the security that pulled him down to the ground. Because of the mess, Kim may have lost her balance. But Vitalii didn't mean any harm," the source told MailOnline.
