New reports claim that Kim Kardashian wants to make sure her flour assailant gets her just deserts by pressing charges against the anti-fur campaigner.
Kim Kardashian doesn’t want the mystery woman who covered her in flour at a Hollywood red carpet event on Thursday to avoid punishment, and thinks she should be her accountable for her actions.
An insider has claimed that Kim Kardashian decided against press charges that night because she didn’t want to take herself away from the event, which was for charity.
Kim Kardashian, 31, will go to the police in the next few days to inform them formally of her decision to press charges.
The reality star wants to send the message people are entitled to their opinion, but should not resort to violence.
The decision is a major U-turn for Kim Kardashian, who said on Thursday she was wasn’t going to pursue the matter.
However she later told E! News she was considering reversing herself.
Kim Kardashian said: “I said earlier no I wasn’t [going to file 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.”
Kim Kardashian reacted with a surprising amount of calm after being doused in flour by an assailant on a Hollywood red carpet last night.
On Thursday it emerged that the as-yet-unnamed a woman is believed to have shouted the words “fur hag” at Kim Kardashian before dousing her with the cooking powder.
New video footage shows the unidentified woman throwing a bag of the white powder over the reality star, who then stormed off in shock.
Kim Kardashian opted to go back to the event following the fracas, and the assailant – an unidentified Asian woman – was arrested by police who were called to the scene.
The fire department was also called to the scene to inspect the substance, which after several minutes they determined as cooking flour.
According to E! Online, the woman ran off after she threw the flour, but didn’t get very far when Kim Kardashian’s representation intercepted her and held onto her before security took over.
Kim Kardashian was attending the launch of her new perfume True Reflection at The London Hotel in West Hollywood.
TMZ reports that after the attack, Kim Kardashian, who arrived at the hotel with her mother Kris Jenner, was ushered into a private room where she removed her doused jacket and brushed the flour off the rest of her outfit and long brunette locks.
After she returned to the event Kim Kardashian laughed off the ordeal and even made a joke in light of the incident.
“That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me,” Kim Kardashian told E! Online.
“Like I said to my make-up artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.”
Kim Kardashian had earlier arrived dressed-to-the-nines, wearing a black blazer, leather trousers and a bright blue blouse, but within minutes she looked more like a dowdy housewife after a kitchen mishap.
The reality star has not pressed charges over the incident and the unidentified woman has been released, according to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Kim Kardashian’s whole back and shiny hair was covered in the substance, which was later determined as cooking flour.
The attack may have quite possibly have come from a protester opposing Kim Kardashian’s love affair with fur.
Animal rights group PETA denied it was behind the assault – despite the organization’s public campaign against Kim Kardashian’s love of fur clothing.
However, a spokesman noted that whoever did throw the flour may managed to send a message out to the reality star.
A spokesman told TMZ: “PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments.
“Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not.”
Kim Kardashian defended wearing fur as a “personal decision”, telling TMZ: “What I choose to do in my personal life I think is a personal choice.
“We don’t use real fur in our clothing lines anymore.”
Kim Kardashian went on to thank her security team and said she would be “stepping up” her protective detail for future events after labeling the flour assassin a “bully”.
“Whatever your beliefs are, to do something in a violent way, to do something that’s illegal, it’s not okay and it’s bullying,” Kim Kardashian said.
“I don’t promote that. You just have to laugh it off.”
Kim Kardashian also told TMZ why she was not going to press charges against the assailant, joking: “Don’t I have one two many lawsuits going on?”
The reality show star received support from her family, including her mother Kris Jenner who wrote on her blog: “I am so proud of my daughter for handling this situation so professionally and with such poise!
“Kim wasn’t phased (sic) by the attack and simply walked away from the red carpet, brushed herself off and headed right back out!!”
Kim Kardashian’s little sister Khloe immediately took to her Twitter account to express both her outrage and praise for her sister’s dignified reaction after the flour pelting.
Khloe Kardashian wrote: “I’m proud of how Kim handled the situation.”
She then later added in defense: “I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn’t have dared tried a thing…”
