He Doesn’t Even Go Here: Who The Eff Is Kim Kardashian Prankster Vitalii Sediuk?
Prankster or pervert, here's hoping his days are numbered…
By Tamara Roper
As Kim Kardashian got out of a car at Balmain's Paris Fashion Week show yesterday - in front of a small army of people with smartphones - she was attacked by Vitalii Sediuk, who appeared out of the crowd and jumped on her.
The guy - who calls himself a journalist - is getting a reputation as a social nuisance, popping up at celebrity events and harassing them to various degrees of irritation. But who else has he targeted?
Madonna and The Hydrangeas
Somehow, Sediuk managed to find out that (of course) Madonna doesn’t like hydrangeas. In a rare feat of hilarity, he managed to wiggle his way into a press conference, and present her with a bunch. Cue THE best side eye and this viral video, which you will now proceed to watch, on a loop, for the rest of the day.
Assaulting Will Smith
Back in 2012 the generally amicable Will Smith rightly backhanded Sediuk when he tried to kiss him on the mouth in Moscow. “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him,” lovely Will Smith retorted, after composing himself. Sediuk merely looked pleased with himself.
Crashing Adele’s Grammy
How Sediuk managed to get himself on stage during Adele’s Grammy-winning announcement is nuts. Sliding in next to J-Lo and Pitbull, he muttered something into the microphone, before being given a no-nonsense shoo off from La Lopez. Though no harm was done, we wouldn’t want to see any more of Jenny from the Block’s wrath than displayed below and neither did he, exiting stage left promptly.
Brad Pitt’s Glasses
After crotch-diving into Brad Pitt during the Maleficent premiere, Sediuk clung on, subsequently knocking Pitt’s glasses from his face and breaking them. On paper, it seems his prank turned quickly into an episode of playground bullying, that was responded to with a restraining order and a ‘crack’ on the head. In an act of irritating defiance, Sediuk went on the wear a T-shirt with Brad Pitt’s face on it during his community service.
America Ferrera’s Dress
Pulling out all the sinister stops on this one, America Ferrera was visibly horrified when Vitalii Sediuk stuck his head under her dress at a film premiere - and rightly so. Speaking after the incident, America Ferrera referred to it as, “shocking and violating”.
