Kim Kardashian became the latest victim of Russian prankster Vitalii Sediuk on Wednesday when he planted a kiss on her famous rear in Paris, France.
The practical joker slipped past security as Kardashian stepped out of a car in the city to a throng of paparazzi, bent down and kissed her backside.
In footage posted online, Kardashian was clearly worried as she was jostled about while her entourage quickly pounced on the prankster, pinning him to the floor.

Kardashian, her husband Kanye West and her mom Kris Jenner quickly left the scene of the drama.
It’s not clear if Sediuk was arrested.
The Russian mayhem maker, who was once arrested for lunging at Brad Pitt during a Hollywood premiere, pulled off a similar prank in Milan, Italy earlier this month when he grabbed model Gigi Hadid’s bottom.
The 21-year-old model was filmed elbowing a man, who was later confirmed as Sediuk, after he lifted her off the ground as she made her way to a car. In video footage of the encounter, Hadid can be heard shouting at the man, demanding he let her go.
Opening up about the scary Milan moment in a piece she wrote for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter, Hadid wrote: “I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that. Since then, I hadn’t been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed me – it wasn’t a choice. I do have that fighter in me.
“Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did. If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation.”
