Justin Timberlake attacked by serial prankster at fashion show

Justin Timberlake has been ambushed by serial prankster Vitalii Sediuk at the Louis Vuitton presentation for Paris Fashion Week.

The singer was walking into the stylish event alongside his wife, Jessica Biel, when Vitalii grabbed onto his lower right leg and tried to pull him down.

Security for the 38-year-old moved fast, grabbing Vitalii and pulling him from the star’s leg within seconds, as Jessica Biel looked on in shock.

The Can’t Stop the Feeling singer seemed to be in fine form after the incident, joking around and posing for photographers inside.

If Vitalii ’s name sounds familiar, it’s because, over the past few years, he’s pulled similar so-called pranks on Kim Kardashian, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Gigi Hadid, and other celebs, at events around the world.

The Ukrainian entertainment journalist has continued to work his way into VIP events.

There have been some serious consequences for Vitalii.

Brad Pitt punched him, when he confronted the actor and his then-wife, Angelina Jolie, on the red carpet at the 2014 Hollywood premiere of her movie Maleficent.

At Milan Fashion Week in 2016, Hadid elbowed him in the face.

Just before the attack on Timberlake, Biel shared several photos taken at the couple’s opulent hotel room.
