Kim Kardashian Planning To Press Charges Against Flour Bomber
Kim Kardashian is having second thoughts about pursuing legal action against the prankster who showered her in flour on the red carpet on Thursday.
The socialite was left red-faced and covered in white powder after a bag of flour was dumped on her while she was chatting to reporters at a glamorous West Hollywood event.
After the incident, Kardashian admitted she had no plans to sue her as-yet-unidentified attacker as she has a number of ongoing legal battles, including disputes over a weight-loss drug and a hair-removal product she endorses.
She quipped, "Don't I have one too many lawsuits going on right now? Do you think I really need to add another one?"
But now the reality TV star is seriously reconsidering pressing charges.
She tells EOnline.com, "I said earlier no I wasn't (going to lodge a complaint). I am just going to think about it, because I don't want someone to think they can really get away with that. So we are going to handle that.
"I was laughing it off earlier and, you know, I think that is the only thing I knew how to do at the time. But I just think it is such a shame that someone like that... would ruin an event, or attempt to ruin an event...
"Now that I think about it and had some time to digest it, I think, 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?' It's scary. And what's even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press. She just came out of nowhere!... I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable."
Kardashian was promoting her new perfume, True Reflection, at the charity launch to benefit the women's organization Dress For Success.
