Kim Kardashian was ready for an encore performance from the dude who almost knocked her to the ground during a Paris Fashion Show event ... the guy tried again and this time he FAILED.
Kim and Kanye West were having dinner at Hotel Costes in Paree at 6:00 PM -- a sign of age, right? -- when her security team eyeballed Vitalii Sediuk ... the guy who tackled her Thursday.
This time Kim and Kanye's beefed up security team jumped into action, surrounding him and keeping him far from his target. By the time they let him go, Kim and Kanye were long gone.
Vitalii is still on the loose ... he didn't commit a crime so there was nothing that could be done to him. As we first reported he wasn't arrested by Paris police after the fashion show attack, because cops say it was a stupid, nothing offense and they had better things to do.
We spoke with Vitalii ... and Sediuk claims he never had any contact with Kim's security.
She's a Handful!

Kanye West is protecting his gluteus to the maximus.
Kim and Kanye are in Paris for Fashion Week and Mrs. West posted a picture on Instagram of Yeezus showing his affection for her backside.
As we previously reported ... Kim upped her security detail this week after she was almost tackled to the ground by a crazy person during an event in Paris.
Good thing Kanye's got her ass covered.

BOOED By Hecklers
At Paris Fashion Show [VIDEO]
9/26/2014 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got another bad reception in Paris ... arriving late to a fashion show where a couple of hecklers booed them.
Kim -- who FYI wore nothing underneath her blazer -- and Kanye showed up at the Lanvin fashion show after it started ... and as they walked to the front-row, several dudes staring booing them.
Kanye gets defensive -- dropping the name of Alber, the designer throwing the shindig -- saying he wanted to see them ... implying they were only late because they were backstage talking to the designer.
Did we mention Kim's boobs?
We Don't Care About Kim Kardashian
9/26/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Parisian police couldn't care less Kim Kardashian was attacked while making her way through paparazzi at a Fashion Week event ... they say the assault means nothing to them ... and don't understand why Americans make such a big deal of it.
An official from the Prefecture de police de Paris said unlike the cops in the U.S. ... the Paris police don't become involved in such "minimal situations."
So cops tell us they will take NO action against Vitalii Sediuk for trying to tackle Kim to the ground.
It's a pretty laissez-faire attitude ... considering Princess Diana was killed in Paris 17-years ago while trying to flee from paparazzi.
As we previously reported ... Kim and Kanye beefed up their security while in Paris.

Armed Guards & Armored Cars
After Paris Attack
9/26/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are bulletproof -- or will be very soon -- because they're ramping up their personal security -- complete with ARMORED VEHICLES -- after a frightening assault in Paris.
Our Kim and Kanye sources say ... K&K were "freaked out" after Kim was almost tackled to the ground by a crazy man. They're especially upset because the Paris paparazzi are following them in hordes ... and crowd control has become extremely difficult.
Our sources say ... they've hired 2 additional teams of armed bodyguards who will encircle them whenever they're in public during Fashion Week.
We're told Kim and Kanye will NOT retain the additional security when they come back to the U.S. They feel Paris has just become too insane for them to handle.
It's pretty ironic ... remember Halle Berry said she wanted to move to Paris because the paparazzi were less aggressive?
At Paris Fashion Week Event (CRAZY VIDEO)
9/25/2014 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian was tackled and almost knocked to the ground in an alarming assault during a Paris Fashion Week event.
Kim, Kanye and Kris Jenner arrived at a fashion show Thursday ... and several hundred people -- including a gaggle of photogs -- were squeezed in to watch them arrive.
As Kim gets out of the car, a guy lunges at her, tackling her legs and tries to pull her to the ground.
You see security jump in, subdue the guy ... and then quickly escort Kim and Kris into the building.
TMZ has learned the attacker may be Vitalii Sediuk -- the Ukrainian prankster who did the same thing to Leo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Will Smith. According to his rep, Sediuk is taking credit for lunging at Kim.
He wasn't arrested on the scene -- but our Kardashian sources say the paparazzi actually turned on Sediuk and held him down while Kim was whisked away.

Sources tell us Kanye had a pretty intense migraine. He was released later that afternoon after doctors checked him out and determined it wasn't serious.
The Australian media is claiming Kanye suffered seizure like symptoms ... but we're told it's not true.
He wasn't the worse for wear ... Kanye made it to his show at the Rod Laver Arena that evening ... and ranted like his normal self.

Airport Anger Management
9/8/2014 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West is skating on thin ice -- one more blow up at the paparazzi could mean blowing his probation and going to jail. So, navigating a crowd of selfie-taking fans and photogs in an Australian airport, while pushing North's stroller is basically ... the ULTIMATE CHALLENGE!
Can Yeezus survive the gauntlet? Watch and find out!
9/8/2014 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West was faced with a big challenge -- walk through an airport with photogs and fans hounding him and Kim Kardashian without losing his temper ... and he passed with flying colors.
Kim and Kanye were walking with baby North through the airport in Melbourne over the weekend ... and security did nothing to stop a slew of fans from walking up to them and snapping pics.
Not only did Kanye not snap ... he even smiled a few times! What is going on here?!?!?
Kanye pled no contest in March for beating up a photographer at LAX back in July 2013. He got 24 months informal probation as part of the plea deal ... so flipping at an airport again would probably land him some jail time.
Still ... it's amazing to see him so restrained.
Kanye West Sex Tape
DOES NOT EXIST
9/6/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Don't get your hopes up -- a new Kim Kardashian sex tape featuring Kanye West will never see the light of day because ... it just doesn't exist.
Sources close to the couple say Kim was purposely being coy during her recent British GQ interview ... where she hinted about doing a sex tape sequel -- this time with Yeezus.
Kim told the mag, "My husband Kanye and I have an amazing sex life. So far as the sex tape is concerned, whether or not we've made another ... If we have, it's never something I want to go public."
We're told what really happened is that Kim didn't wanna talk about her sex life because she's super private about that -- and instead of just shutting down the interviewer ... she decided to playfully tease.
Kim should know ... the Internet don't play when it comes to sex tapes.
Kim Kardashian & Rita Ora
Drama Brewing ...
On Same Flight Out of LAX
9/2/2014 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora ended up on the same flight out of Los Angeles Monday, which wouldn't be a big deal ... until you remember Kim has MAJOR BEEF with Rita!!!
As TMZ first reported, Kim still blames Rita for her bad breakup with Rob Kardashian ... which she considers the cause of a lot of his problems since then.
Things are still so bad between them ... Kim refused to sit near Rita at the VMAs.
Rita arrived about 30 minutes before Kim -- who was with Kanye West and North -- but they probably ended up in first class together.
Power up the noise-cancelling headphones.

We're told K & K paid $20 million ... the house was listed for $21 mil.
It has 2 pools (one with a slide for North), 2 vineyards and a 1,050 square foot entertainment pavilion. Real estate people in the area call it "the jewel of Hidden Hills."
We're told Kim has been eyeing the home for months, telling people it's her dream home. And get this ... Kim and Kanye have been going back and forth to check out the house ... on Vespas from Kris' house to keep a low profile.
We're told escrow is set to close at the end of the month.
The estate was once owned by Lisa Marie Presley.

I Fear Electrocution By Drone
8/6/2014 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West fears the paparazzi will fly drones over his home to get shots of his child in the pool and accidentally electrocute her.
TMZ has obtained a copy of Kanye's deposition in the lawsuit filed by a photog who was attacked by the rapper at LAX.
In the depo ... Kanye sarcastically asks the photog's lawyer, "Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she's trying to learn how to swim at age 1?"
Kanye goes on ... "Wouldn't you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?"
As for how that could happen, Kanye says, "Could it fall and hit her if that paparazzi doesn't understand how to remote control the drone over their house?"
Kanye then explains he and Kim are selling their $11 million Bel Air mansion because they didn't realize paparazzi could shoot directly from the street.
TMZ broke the story ... Kim and Kanye are in escrow for a $20 million secluded estate in Hidden Hills -- near Calabasas. But Kanye clearly thinks even his 3 1/2 acres are not private ... because of paparazzi-controlled drones.
