Reality star Kylie Jenner recently experienced one of the many pitfalls of being a celebrity when she was attacked by a fan at a Chris Brown concert. The incident occurred as the 18-year-old was leaving the venue in Anaheim flagged by her security.

In a video captured by TMZ, someone in the crowd saw an opportunity and grabbed Kim Kardashian's sister's green locks as hard as they could. She is seen crying out in pain and placing a hand on her head after her head snaps backwards. Although her burly security detail were unable to prevent the assault on 18 September, they are seen swooping in to get a clearly distraught Jenner out of harm's way.

But she appeared to have recovered from the incident hours later when she was spotted heading for workout in her native Calabasas. She has also removed any memory of the night before by ditching the vivid green wig for her natural black tresses.

The assault comes days after Kris Jenner revealed that she did not give her daughter permission to get lip fillers at the age of 17, admitting she went "crazy" after discovering what she had done. In April Jenner admitted to having lip fillers to enhance her pout, following several months of speculation over the sudden enlargement. She had previously credited her voluminous pout to make up.

"I get a little crazy – and I think that is what no one sees – and I do have definite thoughts and ideas or [ideas on] what she should do, you know, at a really young age," she told Billy Bush in a candid sit-down on Access Hollywood.

Despite her frustrations, Kris said she had no choice but to accept it and move on because her daughter is her own person. "I got really upset, and then it was done, and I had to let it go," she said. "Once that was done, it's just my kid. I love my kid. We make mistakes."
