Kim Kardashian was flour-bombed. The reality star diva was hit with a bag of flour on the red carpet.
It happened in West Hollywood at the launch of Kim's new perfume. Just after she posed with her mom Kris, the attacker emerged from behind and threw a bag of flour all over Kim.
Kim's bodyguards quickly whisked her away. Her mom was visibly concerned. The red carpet was covered with the flour residue. Hotel workers had to vacuum the carpet. After a few minutes Kim re-emerged.
The paparazzi applauded Kim and she showed a lot of class by laughing it off.
"I told my make-up artist, I wanted to get some powder," joked Kim.
Kim looked picture-perfect-almost like it didn't happen.
Kim's sisters are very upset. Khloe tweeted: "I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared [to try] a thing... "
Los Angeles sheriff's deputies put the flour lady in handcuffs and took her into custody. Kim isn't pressing charges so the woman was released.
Kim said, "It's the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that's happened to me."
