Justin Timberlake Attacked by Prankster Vitalii Sediuk at Louis Vuitton Fashion Show

Louis Vuitton : Front Row - Paris Fashion Week - Womenswear Spring Summer 2020

Notorious celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk has struck again.

His latest victim? Justin Timberlake, whom Sediuk attempted to tackle outside of the Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris on Tuesday.

Timberlake’s wife Jessica Biel held his hand and looked shocked when Sediuk made his move, grabbing the singer’s ankle before security dragged him away.

Despite Justin being surrounded by burly security guards, the man managed to crawl along the floor and grab a hold of Justin’s leg.

In the midst of the swarm, Justin appeared to not notice what was happening initially before he and Jessica turned around visibly startled.

Fortunately, Justin avoided being knocked to the ground in the melee.

Security finally managed to prise the man away and Justin, 38, and Jessica, 37, continued walking into the venue completely poised as though nothing had happened.

Once inside, the married couple sat front row and happily posed for photos with actress Alicia Vikander, seemingly not phased by the shocking incident.

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 Kim Kardashian three times—two of the pranks happening in one week in 2014, the third in 2016.
