PARIS, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Kim Kardashian filed a complaint against Vitalii Sediuk, the man known for assaulting celebrities, after he attempted to kiss her on the backside in Paris.
Video taken outside L'Avenue restaurant in Paris on Wednesday showed Sediuk running up behind Kardashian as she walked from her car to the restaurant. He bent down behind her and attempted to kiss her on the backside before he was tackled by her security.
In an Instagram post, Sediuk claimed the stunt was in protest to Kardashian's role in setting cultural beauty standards.
"I was protesting Kim for using fake butt implants," Sediuk said. "I encourage her and the rest of Kardashian clan to popularise natural beauty among teenage girls who follow and defend them blindly."
"I was sitting there outside the posh restaurant to use free wifi and eating my ice-cream. When all of a sudden, the pack of paparazzi came out and the car with Kim Kardashian," he added. "I swear I didn't know she was going to be there. So I had to come out with an idea very fast. Does it mean if I don't go to celebrities, they come to me?"
Hadid, who elbowed Sediuk in the head after he ambushed her and lifted her into the air, said afterward that she "had every right to defend myself."
