Kim Kardashian has now decided to press charges against the woman who threw flour all over her during a red carpet appearance in LA last week.
Kim was speaking to press on the red carpet at the launch for her new perfume when the unnamed woman threw flour all over her. Pictures taken from the event showed the whole of Kim’s back and hair covered by the white powder.
