Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt Obtains Restraining Order Against Red Carpet Prankster

Brad Pitt has obtained a restraining order against red carpet prankster Vitalii Sediuk after the madcap Ukrainian journalist allegedly punched the actor in the face at the Hollywood premiere of Maleficent on Wednesday (28May14).

Pitt, who was supporting his fiancee Angelina Jolie at her film premiere, was signing autographs for fans outside the El Capitan Theatre when Sediuk reportedly jumped over a security barrier and rushed at the actor, appearing to strike him in the face.

The 25-year-old troublemaker was subsequently arrested by police and charged with misdemeanour battery.

He is being held on $20,000 (£12,500) bail and has now been ordered to stay away from Pitt for the next five days.

Meanwhile, the stunt has cost Sediuk his publicist - Christa Scherck, who had represented him for two years, confirmed to the Associated Press on Thursday (29May14) that she had dropped him as a client, days after he was fired from his job at Ukrainian television channel 1+1.

The incident could land Sediuk in more trouble with authorities as he is still serving probation for crashing the 2013 Grammy Awards, where he ran onstage and grabbed the microphone from Jennifer Lopez as she presented soul star Adele with the Best Pop Solo prize. He pleaded no contest to a charge of trespassing and was sentenced to probation.

Sediuk has become infamous for causing chaos on the red carpet - he previously made headlines in 2012, when he was slapped by Will Smith after he attempted to kiss the actor, and earlier this month (May14), he was arrested at the Cannes Film Festival in France as he tried to crawl under America Ferrera's dress.
