It was so close to being a punch-free Fashion Month. While leaving Paris nightclub L'Arc last night, post–Balmain after party, Kendall Jenner's fight with a paparazzo allegedly turned physical.

According to The Sun, eyewitnesses say that after arguing with paparazzi outside the club, she became so angry that she punched him and had to be held back by her manager and bodyguard.

Gigi Hadid, also in a straight-off-the-runway Balmain outfit, was by her side during the encounter, which People reports started when a photographer got too close to Gigi.

It isn't the first time a fight has broken out during Fashion Week: Last June, designer Rick Owens said he punched the male model who held a banner reading "Please Kill Angela Merkel — Not" while walking in his show. Back in September, a friend of model Jourdan Dunn hit a photographer during London Fashion Week. And who could forget the woman who slapped a publicist over a seating dispute at the Zac Posen show in 2012.

Yesterday, Kendall Jenner posted the below photo to Instagram, with the caption, "MOOD," followed by a side-eye emoji.
