It looks like someone has some “true reflecting” to do about her public image…or at least her security team. Yesterday (March 22) in West Hollywood, E!‘s Kim Kardashian was “flour bombed” during a red carpet event for her new fragrance. What happened, and how is Kris Humphries connected to the incident? Keep reading for all the details and to see the video!
Shortly after posing for photographers at an event for her new fragrance, True Reflection, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was approached by a woman carrying a bag of white powder.
“She came from Kim’s left with a Zip-Lock baggie,” an Access Hollywood staffer on the scene reports, adding that the bag seemed to contain about three fists full of a white powder that appeared to be flour. “The girl just kind of showed up on the red carpet.”
By the source’s account, no one stepped in to stop the woman.
“She went in between Kim and her publicist and started dumping the bag on Kim’s head and shoulders,” the staffer recalls.
“She was shocked,” says the witness of Kim’s reaction. “And, as soon as it happened, she put her head down and security grabbed her and they rushed her off into the elevators.”
Apparently, Kim wasn’t too phased by the incident, as she returned for media interviews only 10 minutes later, “very bubbly, very high-spirited,” and cracking jokes.
“She said she wasn’t too upset because the woman didn’t get any on her face,” says the Access staffer. “She made a joke about having told her makeup artist she needed more powder.”
As for the flour bomber, witnesses say that she made an attempt to quickly flee the scene, but was stopped and escorted away by security.
Was this someone who’s just tired of the Kardashian clan in general? Possibly, but this isn’t the first time this has happened.
In 2011, Kim’s BFF Jonathan Cheban was also flour bombed. At the time, the assailant claimed that they did it for Kardashian’s ex, Kris Humphries.
No word yet on whether or not there’s an actual connection between the two incidents.
We guess some fans are having a really difficult time coping with Kim and Kris’ divorce!
