Justin Timberlake was pulled to the ground by a notorious celebrity prankster as he made his entrance at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday evening.
The singer, 38, was heading into the Louis Vuitton show with wife Jessica Biel, 37, when he was grabbed by a man wearing glasses.
The 'fan' broke through security and grabbed hold of Justin's leg and refused to let go.
Biel, who kept a hold of her husband, helped pull Justin away from the scuffle and the pair did the best to continue on.
Appearing unharmed, Justin managed a smile as he continued through the walk way which was now cornered off by mental barriers.
The 'overzealous fan' has since been revealed as celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk.
Sediuk's previous stunts include trying to kiss Kim Kardashian's bottom in Paris back in 2014 and picking up Gigi Hadid as she left Milan Fashion Week in 2016.
Sediuk teased his plan on Instagram hours before by sharing a picture of Justin and Jessica at the Grammy's with him sat in the background – adding the devil emoji to his post.
He later admitted to committing the prank and said he had done so in order to raise awareness of homophobic attacks.
"I hope now something will change so LGBTG community in my country and all over the world feels safe," said Sediuk.
The scuffle involving Timberlake came just hours after comedian Marie Benoliel crashed the Chanel runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
Benoliel jumped up from her seat and joined the models in shock scenes on Tuesday.
Chanel president Bruno Pavolvsky was seen laughing at the stunt – but models including Gigi Hadid looked less than impressed.
Gigi even stepped in to confront Benoliel before escorting her off the catwalk.
