Kendall Jenner ‘Throws Punch’ at Paris Paparazzo
Model Kendall Jenner reportedly lashed out at paparazzo in Paris on Thursday. Kim Kardashian’s younger sister was leaving L’Arc nightclub with her close pal and fellow runway regular Gigi Hadid when one of the photographers got a little too close for comfort, allegedly prompting Jenner to hurl a punch in his direction.
Images of the incident show the 20-year-old star, rocking her new platinum blonde hair color, hitting out at the cameraman, but it’s not clear if she made contact. One of her bodyguards quickly intervened and held Jenner and Hadid back from the raucous scrum, as he scolded the shutterbug, reports The Sun. The scuffle occurred hours after the two models had walked in the Paris Fashion Week Balmain Autumn/Winter 2016 show, which was attended by Jenner’s mother, Kris Jenner, and Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West. Jenner hasn’t been shy of expressing her disdain for the paparazzi, who stalk her family’s every move. “There are definitely moments when the paparazzi scare me,” she wrote in a recent blog post for her app. “I’m always more worried about other people’s safety, especially when they’re driving,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty continued. “For example, if the paps run a red light – all twelve of them – and almost kill someone else, I’ll definitely tell them off. I stop, tell them to pull up next to me and I say, ‘You assholes! Not only are you going to kill yourself, but you’re going to kill innocent people around you.’ I just go off on them. And their responses are, ‘Well, then don’t run away from us.’ I’m not running from anyone – I’m just living my life! I’m not speeding away from them because how can I escape twelve paparazzi? I can’t. It’s kind of impossible.” Jenner has also found it tough to adjust to finding the cameramen waiting outside her home every morning, claiming, “That’s legit (sic) stalking.” “The fact that I don’t have any say in it is frustrating,” she added. “I understand that I’m a public figure, but it becomes very dehumanizing to have zero privacy. No matter what my title is or what I do, I’m still just a normal person who deserves normal privacy.”
