*Today was Ciara’s turn to be pranked by Ukrainian trickster Vitalii Sediuk at Paris Fashion Week.
Days after he bum-rushed Kim Kardashian as she arrived at Balmain’s show and almost caused her to hit the ground, Sediuk bear-hugged Ciara on the white carpet ahead of Valentino’s runway show.
He just popped up out of nowhere – wearing a black thong and sequined shirt, revealing the word “Chanel” painted in white on his right thigh – and threw his arms around her.
Ciara seemed to take it in stride, visibly surprised by the intrusion, but maintaining her composure with a smile.
Earlier this year, Sediuk – who has previously accosted Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith at red carpet events – apologized to his victims and claimed he was planning to carve out a career as a model.
He said: ”Basically, I’m changing my life. I would like to thank Hollywood for having me this two years and a half. It was an experience that taught me a lot in life. Most importantly, I would like to say sorry for celebrities that had to deal with my stunts and thank them for being tolerant to me all this time.”
He added: “The motivation behind all my pranks was always positive even when some of them went wrong and were not understood by the public.”
