Justin Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel were understandably shaken up and startled after this stranger jumped out at them at the Louis Vuitton Paris Fashion Week show.
Apparently, the singer-actor was the latest target of the celebrity prankster, Vitalii Seduik’s antics on Tuesday.
Timberlake was walking into the show’s venue with Jessica Biel when Sediuk tried to tackle the singer, grabbing hold of his right ankle. Luckily, the only person who ended up on the ground was Sediuk, who attempted to cover his face while still holding on to Timberlake’s ankle.
The singer and actress both looked down at the situation with concerned and confused looks on their faces as security pulled Sediuk off of Timberlake, but the singer appeared to be unharmed.
Once inside, Jessica was comforting Justin and rubbing his shoulder. Security from the event also checked on Jessica and Justin to check that they were okay.
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.
