A week after Gigi Hadid (opens in new tab) was grabbed (opens in new tab) in the street in Milan, Kim Kardashian was just assaulted in the streets of Paris. The reality star was walking from her car and passing by paparazzi when a man (opens in new tab) rushed out of the crowd and appeared to kiss her butt.

Kardashian turned around in surprise, but kept walking as her bodyguards took the man down.

The man appears to be Vitalii Sediuk, a "prankster" known for accosting celebrities at events. Last week, he grabbed 21-year-old Hadid and picked her up as she was walking to her car at Milan Fashion Week. (Though he's ditched the beard since then, he's wearing the same hat and sunglasses for disguise.) He was quickly met with an elbow to the face, an action the model strongly defends.
