Justin Timberlake jokes about ‘human anklet’ attacker after Paris Fashion Week show ambush.
FRANCE – Justin Timberlake has been accosted by a serial prankster while arriving at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week. Vitalii Sediuk grabbed the singer’s right leg as he arrived the show with wife Jessica Biel, held in the courtyard of the Louvre.
Security guards quickly pulled Sediuk away, and Timberlake and Biel appeared to laugh off the incident as they continued walking.
Sediuk has pulled numerous similar stunts before, including attempting to kiss Will Smith on a Moscow red carpet in 2012, crashing the stage during Adele’s acceptance speech at the 2013 Grammys and grabbing both Leonardo di Caprio and Bradley Cooper around the legs at separate red carpet events in 2014.
HIS EUROVISION HISTORY
Singing during the interval between the countries’ performances and the results section was Jamala, who won Eurovision last year for Ukraine, with a world exclusive premiere of her new track ‘I Believe In U’.
Within seconds of her performance starting, a man wearing an Australian flag climbed onto the stage, danced around for a few seconds, before baring his buttocks for everyone in the audience in Kyiv (and an estimated global audience of 200 million watching at home) to see.
But before you crack out the giant boot, Simpsons-style, it seems Australia had nothing to do with it. Instead, media reports claim that the individual was none other than notorious prankster/troublemaker Vitalii Sediuk.
Australia’s SBS News correspondent Brett Mason revealed on Twitter: “Can now confirm the #Eurovision streaker was NOT Australian – but Vitalii Sediuk.”
