Brad Pitt Files Temporary Emergency Restraining Order Against Red Carpet Attacker Vitalii Sediuk

Brad Pitt was shaken up after being attacked by notorious Hollywood prankster Vitalii Sediuk on the Maleficent red carpet on Wednesday (May 28) in Hollywood.

The 50-year-old actor was punched by the man before the police immediately jumped in and arrested him. Vitalii broke Brad‘s sunglasses, but luckily Brad is said to be okay.

After the incident, he filed a temporary emergency restraining order against Vitalii, which requires him to stay 500 feet away from Brad for the next 5 days, TMZ reports. The case has been sent to the L.A. City Attorney for possible prosecution.

    Good. I hope that lunatic is prosecuted for attacking Brad.

  • Amme

    Should put a lifelong restraining order on that lunatic. Who the heck is funding his long string of shenanigans? I think he should be banned from ALL red carpet events.

  • Ivy

    Don’t blame Pitt at all. That guy is getting more and more outrageous with his “pranks”. Next time he could have a knife. Or have his kids with him. Some people will do ANYTHING for attention.

  • Passing Through

    Not too surprising. I’m sure Disney’s security got a major grilling today about how the guy got through them and that close to Brad in the first place. Bet that meeting wasn’t kid-friendly…

  • umm

    It should be a lifetime restraining order for this crazy idiot.

  • Ivy

    Uh I meant next time brad’s kids Could be with him.

    This ridiculous, drama queen is milking the incident for everything it’s worth. Even America Ferrera was above it, and this tiny man with delusions of grandeur wants to cling on to headlines by any means necessary. Desperate times call for desperate measures, I hope he gets laughed at and ridiculed. SNL needs another skit at his expense!

  • chunky pipe


    Hola mami!… sorry, but I’m happy pitt got stole for badmouthing will who was kissed by this guy and pitt defended this attack…

  • Jack

    Did any of the other stars file restraining orders? It’s not like the guy goes after the same people twice.

  • Ivy

    @Jack: maybe hè is trying to keep him from Angie and kids while promoting the movie.

  • funny

    Last night Brad Pitt and Bill Gates both were trending on twitter for different reasons. Today Brad Pitt is still trending

  • Good

    I hope they prosecute his ass and ban him from any celebrity event in the USA.

  • Some Bunny

    That is it. Vitalii Sediuk! This guy is so over. If he can get that close to Brad than imagine how poor the security is for others.

    I wish Brad would of knocked him on his azz, but he is a gentleman, but if someone came near to his beautiful love of his life, Angelina Jolie, pretty sure Brad would end them.

  • Some Bunny

    Just got My Copy of ELLE with Angelina Jolie on the cover for June 2014!

    Blessings to the JP’s to the family and to their Fans!!

  • Good


    That is probably why it is for 5 days as well. They must be leaving the country soon.

    Glad brad is Okay!this crazy prankster got what he is asking for.

  • http://justjared Felinelilly

    @chunky pipe: Hola cook, we’re just going to have to disagree on this one. I don’t know what Brad said about Will Smith but that guy trying to kiss him was taking it too far, and no matter what was said no one deserves to be physically attacked. That nutcase is crazy and the kids could have been there. Jackass didn’t need to get under America Ferrera’s dress either. So I’m glad Brad filed and I hope the lunatic pays for it.

  • Ⱦamsin

    Yea because three A listers had run ins with the guy and it was forgotten the next day, but the tabloid king who has no movies and no career, has decided to get his name in the media through a prank.
    But-but, isn’t Pitty the king of pranksters in Hollywood? George certainly thinks so!
    When he shot an episode for Jackass, he staged his own kidnapping and fooled the real LA police into thinking the situation was real.
    And then in 1999, he was partying in Mexico with David Fincher and some friends, he paid local authorities to cut off the power, and bribed government officials to break into the place they were at, and took one of his friends under false drug charges. The guy’s girlfriend went ballistic. He certainly got huge laughs out of it and bragged about it for years, because THAT’s his idea of fun… so where is this POS sense of humor now??

    Fandango Reports ‘Maleficent’ Accounting for 80 Percent of Weekend Sales

    on May 29, 2014

    maleficentlongrange.pngLOS ANGELES – May 29, 2014 – According to Fandango, the nation’s leading moviegoer destination, “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie as the title sorceress, is casting a spell on ticket-buyers. The Disney adventure is conjuring up more than 80% of the company’s weekend ticket sales and topping Fandango’s Fanticipation movie buzz indicator with a magical 91 out of 100 points. It’s currently outselling “Snow White and the Huntsman” at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle.

    “It’s a great juicy titular turn for Angelina,” says Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger. “Thanks to her entertaining performance and the film’s entrancing visual splendor, theaters will be filled with families with older kids, as well as couples on a date this weekend.”

    Fandango’s Karger interviews Angelina Jolie in this week’s episode of Fandango’s movie recommendation show, “Weekend Ticket,” and points out that the studio wouldn’t have made “Maleficent” without her. “I don’t know if that’s movie industry clout, or some kind of acknowledgment that I’m pure evil,” laughs Jolie. “They did say to me, ‘How do you feel about being considered perfect for this particular role?’ It’s an odd-back-handed compliment in a way, but I’ll take it – I like her.”

    At the end of the “Weekend Ticket” episode, Karger challenges Jolie to a fun trivia quiz about her own movies, from “Girl, Interrupted” to “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” asking her to identify the source of her own classic one-liners (like “Never send a boy to do a woman’s job!”). The entire “Weekend Ticket” interview is available for viewing at

    About Fandango’s Fanticipation
    Known for having its finger on the pulse of moviegoers, Fandango’s movie buzz indicator, Fanticipation, provides statistical insight into the movies fans are planning to see in a given weekend. Fanticipation scores (based on a 1 to 100-point scale) are calculated via an algorithm of Fandango’s advance ticket sales, website and mobile traffic, and social media engagement. Fanticipation is not intended as a forecast of the weekend box office; it is a snapshot of movie fan sentiment.

    @ Ivy. If Brad Pitt cared so much about protecting his children he would have never sold their privacy to People magazine claiming it was all for charity even though there is no proof that $35 million ever went to charity.

  • carly

    and 38% from the top critics. Here’s a favorite “Jolie plays it painfully straight, offering us just three Maleficent modes. There’s the curse-scene Maleficent, with her glamorous evil grins and sultry cackles that play so well in the trailers. Then, for the rest of the film, she’s either stone-faced or screaming. This choice makes this once-fascinating figure feel flat.” Same thing in Changeling. Such range. Here’s something I didn’t know and that is she has been nominated for razzies 7 times. And in three years she was nominated for two movies each year. All these before she bagged Pitt who came fully equipped with a production company. No wonder she went after him. She needed a career boost. A MIghty Heart anyone?

  • teri

    I think this guy has a mental illness and should be checked out. It’s simply not normal for one to hit without being provoked.
    It disgust me that this man acted like a baffoon in front of the JP children, that’s low. I’m going to see Melificent today. :)

  • carly

    No. Only widdle braddy boy.

  • Some Bunny


    I so agree, punching someone is being a Bully no matter who you are. I am sure Brad didn’t know where it was coming.

    I don’t know why there are losers on this thread acting like it was okay??

    I serious don’t know why a person in guise of a “prankster” could do such a terrible thing and the media should be shamed for promoting these type of incidents as “pranks” or “jokes” when we try to teach a no bully tolerance nationwide in our school system in this country.

  • gr8

    @#9 – ok big shot, next time we’ll have this psychopath hit you in the face, but you must promise to just stand there and do nothing about it, ok??

  • Lily

    Lock up the crazie. on the happy note, Viv was at the premiere too, I saw a pic of her, Brad, Angie, Zahara,and Shiloh all together, it looks like it was taken inside the theater.

  • Concerned AJ Fan

    They are saying horrible things about Angie over on D-Listed . Why must they be so mean? They don’t realize what wonderful people they are

  • teri

    Seen the pics of the children there as well, they are growing so fast. Can’t get over Mattox, such a handsome young man.

  • Ivy

    @Jack: you are an idiot.

  • busted

    Finally catching up

    Maybe if other celebs had done something this wouldn’t have gone this far. He is like any creep. He is not getting violent. Which is not a prank; as we all know that is an assault. I don’t blame Brad. His family was there and this is crossing the line. It is amazing how Tampshit thinks it is all fine and dandy that Brad should be fine with someone hitting him.. but then this is same freak that said they would stab Angie..

    Jared should have reported that to someone. We see things like this go too far. This idiot went too far.. and he did it on US Soil so let his ass* pay the price.

    It’s Maddox. Just not my day it the spelling department.

    Disney’s Maleficent cast a powerful spell on the U.K. and Irish box office, where it opened to a stellar $2.5 million on Wednesday.
    That’s ahead of the first-day earnings of fellow Disney release Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and marks the biggest opening day ever for Angelina Jolie in those markets, as well as in Italy and the Philippines.
    Even more promising, Maleficent did more than double the business of Oz the Great and Powerful in the U.K. and Ireland.

    A passion project for Jolie, Maleficent is expected to benefit mightily from being the summer’s first tentpole for females of all ages, tapping into the same audience that turned Disney’s Frozen into a global Goliath.

  • Jack


    You claim he got the retraining order to protect his children even though the restraining order means the guy has to stay away from Brad. Where does it say he has to stay away from Brad’s kids?

  • allison

    @Jack: The other ones did not give him as much attention as this one has.

  • Just Shut Up


    All who comment here know you are an ignorant as* but this is a serious situation. This guy will stop at nothing, he is going to cause serious harm to someone, and he is already on 3 years probation. The French kicked him out of France after the America incident and he needs to have his visa lifted and denied entry to the US. You wouldn’t think it was OK if he jumped you but maybe that is exactly what you need.

    It’s being reported that this idiot broke Brad’s glasses; he could have blinded Brad. That is probably why Brad decided to take a stand against this moron.

    @ Jack @ 05/29/2014 at 12:46 pm

    Common now. People should be able to what they want to with life they live without being fearful of other people. Are you trying to say that Brad & Angie should not live their lives because of their fame? It’s one thing to not like them but it’s another thing to tried to blame them for the crazy guy’s behavior!

  • allison

    @Concerned AJ Fan: Dlisted writes terrible things about most people. They follow the lead of the owner of the site.

  • shelly

    Looks as if the guy went after Brad’s wig and then the melee began.

  • Ⱦamsin

    So a morally corrupt jackass is not afraid of misusing police force, bribe local authorities, scaring people to death, stealing someone’s passport because that’s his idea of fun, but he doesn’t think it’s the same thing to have a random guy get too close to him. Karma is not through with him yet.

  • bap

    Angelina should direct Cleopatra herself and let Lupita play Cleopatra.

  • Wonderbust

    @Concerned AJ Fan:
    No one cares Tamroid, Maleficent is slaying at the box office.

    Angelina Jolie exudes sinful sexiness in Versace at Maleficent LA premiere
    She attended the premiere with her fiancé Brad Pitt, and wore a strapless black Versace dress which

    looks like leather but was actually made entirely of rubberised silk. Pretty neat, right?

    A ha! I knew that dress wasn’t exactly leather but couldn’t figure out what it was. What a great

    idea. Now lets just sit back and see how many other tricks will start wearing rubberized silk.

    Won’t take long for someone to rip it off that’s for sture.
