Kim Kardashian is praising her bodyguard today, after a man ran up to her on the streets of Paris and attempted to kiss her famous derriere.
The assault went down moments ago, after the reality TV star visited Balmain headquarters ahead of tomorrow's Paris Fashion Week show.

In a video of the incident shared by Kardashian's makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, Kim is seen exiting her vehicle and walking into L'Avenue restaurant ... when a stranger comes out of nowhere and makes a beeline for her booty.
The man is quickly subdued by security, who Kim later thanked for his services:
Turns out the guy is Vitali Sediuk, the same guy who got an elbow to the face from Gigi Hadid after he attacked her in the street in Milan last week.
"I remember taking the time, as it all felt slo-mo, to look at him, a stranger, and my first reaction was: 'Get me out of this situation,'" Gigi said of the altercation in this week's Lenny Letter. "I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that. Since then, I hadn't been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed me — it wasn't a choice. I do have that fighter in me."
While her totally badass reaction is worthy of applause, Hadid made it clear she truly thought she was in real peril.
"Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did. If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation," she tells Dunham. "Practicing self-defense is important so that when you're in the moment, reacting from muscle memory comes more naturally to you than freezing up. Confidence in your own ability to defend yourself comes with educating yourself about it, and is a massive advantage when in an unsafe situation."
