Brad Pitt Attacker Pleads No Contest, Ordered to Stay Away From Hollywood Events

Former Ukranian TV reporter Vitalii Sediuk plead “no contest” to battery charges on Friday after he attacked Brad Pitt at the ‘Maleficient’ red carpet premiere by allegedly punching him in the face.

CNN reports that Sediuk has been charged with four misdemeanors, including one count of assault and two violations of the Los Angeles municipal code. Those violations are related to his stage crashing at the 2013 Grammy Awards when he ran up on stage just as Adele was about to receive her Grammy Award.

Despite a long history of red carpet stunts, Sediuk was fired from his television channel in the Ukraine after he jumped under the dress of America Ferrera on May 16 at the Cannes Film Festival. His other stunts have included trying to kiss Will Smith on the red carpet for ‘Men in Black 3,’ and hugging Bradley Cooper around his crotch area. His former station, 1+1, claims that they have no involvement in Sediuk’s stunts.

Sediuk has been ordered to stay away from Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie as a result of his attack. TMZ also says that Sediuk has been effectively ordered to stay away from all Hollywood events, including awards shows and red carpet premieres.
