    Justin was arriving at the Louis Vuitton show with wife Jessica Biel when infamous celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk dived for the singer and grabbed his ankle.

    After refusing to let go, there was a brief scuffle before Vitalli was escorted away by security.

    The prank didn't appear to rattle Justin and Jessica too much though as they quickly brushed it off and went on to enjoy the show.

    Taking to Instagram afterwards, Justin even joked about the whole thing, referring to Vitalii as his "human anklet".

    This is definitely not the first time that Vitalii has played a prank on unsuspecting A-listers. In fact, he has something of a reputation when it comes to causing red carpet chaos.

    He was tackled to the ground by security when he tried to rush Kim Kardashian in 2016; Gigi Hadid elbowed the prankster in the face when he lifted her up from behind after a fashion show in Milan; Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper were both grabbed around the legs on separate red carpets; and Vitalii was actually fired from his job after he dived under America Ferrera's dress at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.

    However, Vitalii doesn't categorise his pranks as an attack. Posting on Instagram after his run-in with Justin Timberlake, Vitalii said: "Before media says that my prank was an 'attack' (as always), I want to explain what attack means."
