And he's been hit with a restraining order...
TMZ reports that Brad Pitt was rushed by Ukranian reporter Vitalli Sediuk yesterday at the premiere of Maleficent. If the name sounds familiar to you, it's because this is the same man who was slapped for trying to kiss Will Smith, crashed the Grammys and put his face in Leonardo DiCaprio's crotch. He's got a thing for celebrities.
Sediuk jumped a barrier at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood and ran to him while he was walking on the red carpet. He actually made contact with Pitt's face before police grabbed him. It's unknown why he wanted to get that close to Brad Pitt, but considering his usual behavior it's not a surprise. He was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department and booked for misdemeanor battery.
TMZ also reports that Sediuk broke Pitt's designer sunglasses after hitting him in the face. Pitt was not hurt, only shaken up. A temporary restraining order is now in effect, ordering Sediuk to remain at least 500 feet away from Pitt for the next five days. The case has been sent to the Los Angeles City Attorney, which could led to Sediuk being prosecuted.
The man is on three years probation after he crashed the Grammys in 2013, jumped on stage and tried to take Adele's award.
