Kendall Jenner Denies Punching a Paparazzo: ‘All I Ask For Is Just a Bubble of Space’
Leave KenGi alone!
ICYMI, Kendall Jenner was accused of punching a paparazzo in defense of her bestie Gigi Hadid during Paris Fashion Week when she was leaving L’Arc nightclub. Now, Jenner is taking to her website and app to offer her side of the story to the public and deny all claims that she physically assaulted the photographer.
Jenner writes that she, Hadid and her security guards were walking out of the club in “conga-line formation” and that she was covering her face because she was “super sweaty after dancing in the club all night”.
“The last thing on earth I wanted was to have my photo taken at that moment!” she adds.
“All of a sudden, this paparazzi took his camera and started taking pictures right below my face,” Jenner continues. “It was in my personal space, like centimeters from my body. I was so annoyed.”
“All I ask for is just a bubble of space to breathe, and he disrespected that.”
The model explains that she attempted to push and pull the camera out of the photographer’s hand at the same time and that this motion gave the illusion in photos that she was trying to hit him.
“They totally weren’t! I just wanted him and his camera out of my face!” she writes.
Jenner says that her security guard Mason had to step in to intervene when the paparazzo denied her request for the photos to be deleted. Mason confirmed that the photos were trashed and even asked the photographer to apologize.
“He definitely deleted them, which I’m thankful for,” says Jenner. “Violence is never my thing. I get that they have a job to do, too—but I’d love it if they gave me a break every now and then.”
