A fan was a little too excited to see Justin Timberlake in Paris during fashion week that he got a little too close to the singer!
Paris Fashion Week is underway as celebs flock to various shows in the city. But with that brings some interesting crowds as Justin Timberlake has become the latest celeb to fall victim to an obsessed fan.
Justin and his wife Jessica Biel were headed inside the Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2020 show when a fan took to the floor to grab onto his right leg. This caused a major ruckus as security rushed over to try to pull the man off the singer, but say his grip was tight.
A witness to the event says that Justin looked down at the man in complete shock.
“Justin tried to shake the guy off, but couldn’t pry himself loose. [Jessica] was really scared because they didn’t know if the guy wanted to really hurt Justin or what his intentions were. Justin gave Jessica a reassuring smile, but it was clear he was concerned.”
The witness continued to share that they are unsure how the man got onto the other side of the protective barriers, but that the security guards were eventually able to pull the man off.
“The guy was absolutely glued to Justin’s leg and wouldn’t let go,” the eyewitness said. “The security team couldn’t pull too hard because the man kept squeezing Justin’s leg. After about 20 seconds, they were able to pull him off Justin and took him away. Justin wasn’t hurt and he and Jessica were good sports about it as they went into the event, but you could tell by the look on their faces how freaked out they were.”
While there has been no confirmation as to who the man is, many believe that it was Vitalii Sediuk who is known to be a celebrity prankster. He recently took to his Instagram posting a picture of himself in clothing and sandals that match that of the man photographed tackling Timberlake.
This comes after an earlier incident at s Chanel show on Monday after a French YouTube star crashed the runway before being stopped by Gigi Hadd.
