Vitalii Sediuk strikes again! Paris Fashion Week has been full of surprises. First Gigi Hadid almost got to live out her fantasy of pushing another model off the runway mid-stomp when a comedian crashed that Chanel show. And now E! News reports that Justin Timberlake (almost) fell victim to Vitalii, the Ukrainian prankster with a history of doing dumb shit to celebrities for attention. Vitalii grabbed Justin’s leg from behind as he and Jessica Biel were on their way to the Louis Vuitton show outside of the Louvre in Paris.
Here’s Justin wearing the goofiest little man purse in all of Paris. Does he keep his bird seed in there? His dignity? Oh wait, his son’s vaccination schedule!
I’m guessing Vitalii learned to pick weaker targets after Gigi treated him to an elbow to the face back in 2016. According to E!
Seduik is notorious for crashing red carpets and other star-studded events. He usually pulls his pranks during Paris Fashion Week (which had a new prankster emerge earlier today), although there have been some exceptions, like the time he planted his face in Bradley Cooper‘s crotch on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet in L.A. in 2014.
The list of celebrities Sediuk has managed to ambush is lengthy. He tried to kiss Will Smith on the mouth at the Men In Black III premiere in 2012. He gave Ciara a pants-less hug outside Balmain’s Paris Fashion Week show in 2014. He’s ambushed poor Kim Kardashian three times—two of the pranks happening in one week in 2014, the third in 2016.
This is going to sound crazy but I’m smelling an international conspiracy to make Justin look like a tool (a pointless endeavor as Justin accomplishes just that with every breath that he takes), and I think Ashton Kutcher’s behind it! Sure Vitalli has assailed a whole bunch of other celebrities, but as we just recently learned, Ashton’s a powerful man in Ukraine. What if this was actually a continuation of Ashton’s legendary Punk’d prank that left Justin a sniveling mess way back in 2003? Maybe Ashton was biding his time these past 16 years waiting for just the right moment to release his most valued Ukrainian asset. Of course, I have no proof of this, it’s just a theory I think we should consider.
