Notorious celebrity pest Vitalii Sediuk has struck again. His latest victim? Justin Timberlake, whom Sediuk tried to tackle outside of the prizefighter Vuitton fashion show in Paris on Tuesday.
Justin Timberlake’s wife Jessica Biel held his hand and looked shocked when Sediuk made his move, grabbing the “Mirror” singer’s ankle before security dragged him away.
This is not Sediuk’s 1st time creating headlines for harassing a star; he’s also physically attacked and tried to hug, kiss or stick his head up to the skirts of many celebs like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, America Ferrera, Brad Pitt and more at movie premieres, fashion shows, and other red carpet events.
Justin Timberlake was pulled to the ground by a notorious celebrity prankster as he made his entrance at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday evening.
The singer, 38, was heading into the Louis Vuitton show with wife Jessica Biel, 37 when he was grabbed by a man wearing glasses. The ‘fan’ broke through security and grabbed hold of Justin’s leg and refused to let go. Biel, who kept a hold of her husband, helped pull Justin away from the scuffle and the pair did the best to continue.
Hadid infamously landed AN elbow in his face when Sediuk tried to raise her off from the bottom outside of a fashion show in 2016. The Ukranian self-described “prankster” hinted that he would target Timberlake earlier within the day; before the show, he took to Instagram Stories to share a photo of the star and his spouse at the Grammys, in which Sediuk can be seen in the background.
It seems that Justin Timberlake was able to get his equanimity back for the style show. He gamely posed with creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere as well as Jennifer Connelly, Alicia Vikander, Mark Ronson and more in the front row.
