On Wednesday, model Gigi Hadid was faced with a scary moment when she was walking to her chauffeured car in Milan.
After strutting her stuff on the runway at the Max Mara fashion show, she posed for selfies with fans as she was making her way to the car. She didn’t see what was happening behind her — notorious prankster Vitalii Sediuk was able to get close enough to grab her and lift her off the ground.
In response to Sediuk’s actions, Gigi elbowed him to free herself from his grasp. In a video, obtained by TMZ, she screamed to Sediuk, “Who the f**k are you? You piece of sh*t.” Sediuk left the scene.
Gigi then asked a man, “Can you go find that guy?” Gigi's sister Bella was also present when the incident took place.
Hadid took to Twitter to explain her actions, tweeting, "and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho 👊🏼😏🐱."
Vitalii has been known for pranking celebs, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian, America Ferrera, and Will Smith on the red carpet over the years.
