Kendall Jenner has said in the past that the paparazzi “legit” stalk her, and it seems the reality star finally had enough when she punched a photographer who got too close to her. Jenner, who was in Paris to walk in Fashion Week, was partying at L’Arc nightclub in Paris after attending an after-party hosted by the Balmain fashion house at Restaurant Lapérouse when a paparazzo got too aggressive trying to get a snap of the model. A bodyguard interfered, preventing Jenner from harming the photographer more, as well as keeping the paparazzo away from Kendall.
It’s not the first run-in Kendall has had with a photographer, and her dislike of the paparazzi is well-documented. On her website, Kendall told fans all about it, writing that there are “definitely moments when the paparazzi scare me,” adding that she is also afraid they might hurt other people.
Kendall confessed on her website that she is “always more worried about other people’s safety, especially when they’re driving.” To highlight her point, Jenner explained that every day, several photographers wait for her outside her house and follow her everywhere, even when she’s driving. To make matters worse, the photographers will “run a red light” to keep up with her, and “and almost kill someone else” in the process.
On her website, Jenner explained that when that happens, she will “definitely tell them off. I stop, tell them to pull up next to me and I say, ‘You a–holes! Not only are you going to kill yourself, but you’re going to kill innocent people around you.’ I just go off on them.”
Unfortunately, according to Kendall, the photographers aren’t that concerned about it. Jenner explained that they argue “then don’t run away from us.”
Calling their behavior “overly invasive,” Kendall described that it “becomes very dehumanizing to have zero privacy,” reminding her readers that “[n]o matter what my title is or what I do, I’m still just a normal person who deserves normal privacy.”
At the Balmain party and at L’Arc nightclub in Paris, Kendall wore a blonde wig, something she does not do very often, but she was asked to wear it earlier in the day as she walked down the runway for the Balmain Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Her mother, Kris Jenner, had nothing but high praise for her daughter, telling reporters that she is “so proud of Kendall.”
Remarking that the blonde wig “was a surprise,”Jenner also said she didn’t know Kendall “was going to open and close the show.” Naturally, her mother “thought she looked great,” confessing that when Kendall walked away, Kris Jenner “didn’t realize how tiny [Kendall’s] waist was. I said to Kanye [West] ‘Look at her waist. It’s so tiny. She’s definitely a Balmain girl.'”
In addition to walking the runway, Kendall has been romantically linked to footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, who invited the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty to watch one of his matches with his club, Real Madrid.
Although Kendall didn’t have time to go, with her busy Paris schedule that had her walking in nearly every major fashion show in Paris, according to a source close to Jenner, “Kendall was totally flattered that [Ronaldo] ‘liked’ her photo on Instagram,” and Jenner “thinks Cristiano is gorgeous.”
Although there’s no word that the pair are dating, according to the insider, if Ronaldo asked Kendall out, the reality star “would accept with no hesitation.”
Kendall had been romantically linked to One Direction rocker Harry Styles, but not anymore. While Kendall is rumored to be looking for a serious relationship, Harry is definitely not the one. An insider confessed that Jenner “thought she could just go with the flow with Harry,” but the on again, off again nature of their relationship was “just not making her happy.”
