Kim Kardashian may press charges on flour bomber after all

Shortly after being “flour bombed” at a red carpet event for her new fragrance last week, Kim Kardashian decided not to press charges against her alleged attacker. But on second thought, she might press those charges after all.

“Now that I think about it and had some time to digest it, I think, ‘What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?’ It’s scary,” Kardashian told E! News. “And what’s even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press. She just came out of nowhere! And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and ... I’m gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable.”

On Thursday evening, Kardashian was talking to the press before a charity event to launch her new fragrance when a woman approached her, yelling what sounded like “fur hag,” and threw a white power on the reality star’s back and hair.

At the time Kardashian declined to press charges, opting instead to clean herself up and continue with the event.

Now TMZ reports that Kardashian plans to contact the police within the next few days to press charges. The alleged flour thrower may be charged with non-criminal battery.

PETA claims it had no involvement in the attack but seemed to be happy to use the occasion to bring Kardashian’s fondness of fur to the public’s attention. The animal rights group told TMZ that it would help the accused flour tosser with legal costs, if she asked.

Of Kardashian’s decision to press charges, PETA said, “If anything, Kim should get a life, the very thing that she denies animals.”
