Ciara 'attacked by prankster'
Ciara is the latest victim of Ukranian television personality Vitalii Sediuk.
The Goodies hitmaker is in the City of Lights for Paris Fashion Week.
But her stylish entrance to the Valentino show on Tuesday was botched when the notorious red carpet crasher stripped down to a thong and sequin top and rushed in front of her, going in for a hug.
Ciara handled the situation with grace, posing for photographers as he approached her.
The star posted several photos of herself getting ready for the event and at the Paris venue, but hadn’t commented about the incident at press time.
Vitalii is famous in his native Ukraine for his red carpet pranks.
Last week, he rushed Kim Kardashian on the way to Balmain’s fashion show in the city.
A video obtained by E! News showed him diving for her legs before Kim nearly falls to the ground as she holds onto a nearby bodyguard.
Earlier this year, Vitalii also attacked and allegedly punched Brad Pitt at the Los Angeles premiere of wife Angelina Jolie’s movie Maleficent.
He was sentenced to 20 days of community service in that case but insisted he never threw the punch.
“I never hit, I never punched, I never slapped Brad Pitt in the face. This is absolutely false information,” he stated after the incident.
TMZ reports Vitalii remains on three years probation for crashing last year’s Grammys after appearing on stage and attempting to accept an award presented to Adele.
He has also surprised celebrities including Will Smith, Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio by running at them on the red carpet.
