"Even though you know about my anger towards the paparazzi -- I didn't touch him," the reality star claimed. "This paparazzi took his camera and started taking pictures right below my face. It was in my personal space, like centimeters from my body. I was so annoyed. All I ask for is just a bubble of space to breathe, and he disrespected that."

"I grabbed his camera and pushed it away across my body, sort of trying to push and pull it out of his hand at the same time," she continued. "Of course, that side motion with my arm is why all of the pictures look like punches were flying. They totally weren't! I just wanted him and his camera out of my face!"

Kendall claims that after the incident, her bodyguard took action when the paparazzi wouldn't delete the photos. "My security, Mason, had to intervene and totally scared him. Mason made him agree to delete them and even forced him to apologize!" she wrote.

Sounds like a scary situation!
