What's worse: Being Ryan Seacrest and having fake ashes spilled on you at the Oscars or being Kim Kardashian and having someone flour-bomb you on the red carpet during an event?
The reality star was doing interviews at a launch party held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood for her new fragrance True Reflection tonight, when—out of nowhere—a younger female fan (we guess you could call her that) threw an entire bag of flour on Kim.
Was she super P.O.'ed?
Not at all!
"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that's happened to me," Kim told us. "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," she said, laughing off the entire ordeal.
Kris Jenner commented on the "festive" event, telling us, "If anybody comes at me with something, call security."
Khloè Kardashian Odom was not at the event but tweeted, "I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared tried a thing..."
Kourtney Kardashian also chimed in, tweeting, "Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women. I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!"
The mystery woman tried to run away, but Kardashian's rep held her and security escorted her away. According to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Kim did not want to press charges but a non-criminal battery report was still filed. The woman was later released.
Like a lady, Kim walked away calmly after the initial assault, got cleaned up and returned back to the carpet about 10 minutes later.
There's no exact reasoning as to why this woman did what she did, but some media members said they heard her saying something about fur (uh-oh).
Regardless, everyone was cheering and applauding our Kimmy once she returned. What a good sport!
