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.

    . gave Maleficent a B-
    I’ve read a number of reviews that have all made a similiar point – that the other characters aren’t developed enough and that things come to a conclusion too quickly. It seems as if the movie is suffering from Disney’s decision to cut it 45 minutes from the movie. They may have cut just a bit too much. Maybe if they had left in another 15 minutes to flesh out the other characters some of the reviews would be more like a B+. What’ll be interesting is to see if RT classifies B- as rotten. I wouldn’t. That’s a higher than average grade, but they’ve put 2.5/4 reviews in the “rotten” category so maybe whoever’s keeping the tally at RT has an ax to grind. LOL!

    Having to explain France’s WWII govt to the trolls kinda says it all, don’t it? Anybody as ignorant as they are about current events couldn’t possibly have a full and knowledgable grasp of history. Let alone French history. They probably hear “Louis Quinze” and think people are talking about a really ugly old ass brocade sofa some fug dude with a powdered long curly wig and silk knee britches liked to swive his mistresses on…

  • For Sure

    Yeah, I’m glad that Brad is taking some type of action. Now It’s time for some charges.

    Shut up with your kamra b.s. TamBUSTED. You’ve got a kit and kaboolde coming your way.

    Quit using the word like it’s a threat. It’s too big of a concept for you to grasp. How can you, your entire life is based on lying about Brad and Angelina. Threatening their lives and wishes illness on their children.

    And you use with such glee when you’re hoping bad things to happen to them and their children. And violent things. There is no denying it in your posts. You applaud the guy that used violence and then turn around and condone it. It’s only alright as long as it’s against Brad and/or Angelina.

    It’s people like you that make them need security.

    “We did lots of things,” Jolie said last night at the Maleficent premiere in Hollywood. “She’s very into skating. She’s a skateboarder. We did graffiti lessons and skateboarding.”
    Remember last year when Brad was promoting WWZ he told USA Today that one of the girl’s had drawn a line all the around the master bath and bedroom…while her sister egged her on? I remember saying at the time that I thought Shiloh was the drawer and Z the egger. Well…I gotta bad feeling one day Brad’s gonna open his bedroom door find his walls tagged with Shiloh’s burgeoning “street art”. Brad once said he wanted all daughters. Little did he know that not all little girls are into puppy dogs, princesses and Barbies…

    If Brad didn’t hit this dip-stick, he should have stumped him in his balls, this is happening again to another celebrity: let’s not create havoc and have injuries start having because a person is trying to promote anything they are doing, it makes you have fear in being around people, especially crowds. My children were around that dip-stick would be still be begging me to get off his azz, because I would become his worst nightmare. GOD BLESS THE JOLIE- PITTS.

    American critics have never been to kind Angelina, its not because she cannot act. Angelina is an exotic woman she has never fit the All American Apple pie woman.

    She does not suck up to anyone in Hollywood, Angelina is Bad Woman meaning smart and ahead of the game in crazy Hollywood.

  • Angelina the Hag

    I wish hhe ad blackened pitts eyes and blyody his nose an then hit Elvira the girlfriend.

  • Angelina the Hag

    Shiloh should have been named chasity boner..a lesbian already.. Angie has done a terrible job on all those freaky kids..


    Repost from the other thread

    Oh I know such a blasphemy, I actually shivered writing that… Being a fan of that ‘lady’ would be like entering zombieland, I would really fear for my brain (as it seems it has to be removed to become a hen).

    @Passing Through:
    Some people will definitely get hurt. Brad punched back that crazy man and Angelina will kick those crazy hens. Feel like Mr. and Mrs. Smith all over again.

    Anyway, here some more ‘hate’ roughly translated from a french paper (L’Express)

    Angelina Jolie, the star who breaks Hollywood’s rules.
    Actress Angelina Jolie, legendary in more than one way, stars in Maleficent. Let’s remind her story, from rebellion to an exemplary life.
    She’s back in movie theatre as a cruel but sublime witch in Maleficent. This Disney production is a blockbuster which should secure her position as Hollywood golden girl. But let’s be honest, in the last twenty years or so, she proved that she defining her as a hit-maker, or as somebody’s wife, was simply not enough.
    Indeed, we know she is a Hollywood heavyweight (she makes some twenty million dollars per movie), but she is so much more. Angelina Jolie is a society phenomenon : she’s part of our culture, she brings it to life ; she is a woman who knows what she wants and who leads her life as a fierce captain. And if it feels like stating the obvious, it has not always be a given.
    Angelina’s childhood was a troubled one. Daughters of beautiful actors Marcheline Bertrand and Jon Voight – with whom she stars in Looking to get Out, her parents divorced when she was just a toddler. After studying her art in the 90’s, she modeled and displayed her fierce look and ravishing pout, which we also saw in music videos from the Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz and Meat Loaf. At the same time, directors used her “dark” aura in movies such as Cyborg 2, Playing God, Hell’s Kitchen.
    But it’s only a few years later, as a wild mental health patient in Girl, Interrupted, that Hollywood really noticed her and gave her her first Oscar. Divorced from British actor Jonny Lee Miller and remarried with Billy Bob Thornton, she then played the provocative card (bisexuality, tattoos, self-mutilation). But those who thought she would destroy herself could not have been more wrong.
    Displaying her fantasy figure in Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie has always been thought of as an otherworldly, unfathomable creature. And that was only what it took for Brad Pitt to leave America’s “friend”, Jennifer Aniston. At the time, people thought he had fallen for the devil, gave in to temptation. And the bird of ill omen predicted their relation would just be a shipwreck.
    But Angelina Jolie is full of surprises. She’s not what she seems to be; she’s not just a movie star ; she wants to make a difference. After the documentary a Place in Time, she directed in 2012 In The Land of Blood and Honey, a movie about Bosnian war. If some frowned at the way she depicted Serbian soldiers, all acknowledged her dedication. She also managed to get away from movies that advertised her beauty for more serious ones, such as A Mighty Heart or The Changeling, for which she was praised and acclaimed. She managed to still have huge hits at the box office in the mean time, with Salt and The Tourist (they made 335 and 298 million dollars respectively).
    Yet, since she met Brad Pitt, Jolie keeps proving that her priorities lay elsewhere, in her family of six children – for who she might one day quit acting -, and in her commitment to the UNHCR – a true commitment, as far as it could be from other celebrities PR charity. Indeed, she travels the world, go to the Davos forum, visit refugee camps, and meet members of the American Congress… Childhood protection, education and Haiti are some other causes she supports with her husband. And she never fails to mention just how it enriches her.
    And it certainly does. On May 14th, 2013, she stunned the world with an open-letter published in the New York Times, in which she revealed she underwent a double mastectomy. After her mother’s death from ovarian cancer, in 2007, and her aunt’s passing in 2013, she discovered she carried the BRCA gene mutation, and had a high chance to develop breast cancer. One thing is for sure: it takes gut for anyone, and more so for a celebrity and a sex-symbol, to reveal such a thing.
    But Angelina is a fighter and, even though you did not see it coming, a true role model.

    So excited to see all the pictures and read all the articles, thanks for posting. The family looks marvelous and reviews are good! The kids have grown so much….how beautiful is Zahara? Maddox is smiling too! Just adore the whole family. Good to read that both families had members in attendance.
    Someone in the know needs to turn in that filthy troll that makes those threats against the lives of the JPs into the Pitt security or lawyers. JJ needs to remember his site was built before the social media got so big. Therefore, his numbers truly are misleading, his laziness and disregard of quality is obvious by letting trolls take over his boards. JJ should be ashamed, imho.
    Long live Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and the Jolie-Pitt kids. Thank you for sharing a bit of your lives.


    How does this creep get the money to fly to all these premieres and accost all these stars? He did look astonished that the cops were hauling him off to jail, does he have mental illness that he thought he was above the law? Creep. Keep him away from Angelina too, Brad.

    Angie looked sultry last night…she really lights up any red/blue/black carpet. Her accessories, including Brad was the right touch LOL.
    Glad Brad punched back that stupid idiot. His security should have beaten that POS to a pulp to teach him a lesson. It is a scary situation because you don’t know the individual’s’ intent. Brad needs to amp up his security especially when his family is out in the public like this.

  • Ⱦamsin

    Loons are being delusional. Stupitt was not assaulted though. He was not threatened. His life was not in any form of danger. Anyone who thinks so is definitely mentally challenged. This goes to show that Pittstain’s drug abuse has made him volatile and dangerous. I wouldn’t doubt that he could beat his children too, considering how he overreacts about a harmless situation.

  • chunky pipe

    …I bet clooney, damon, affleck, and decaprio are speed dialing this siht to each other and dying with laughs…hahahahahahahahahahhaahhaha…

  • Ⱦamsin

    Here’s what the volatile druggie said in 2012:

    In 2012, Pitt spoke out against Will Smith slapping Sediuk after the prankster kissed him on the lips in Moscow.

    “I stay away from the entertainment gossip. I don’t want to slap anyone,” Pitt said at the time. “Why would that happen? I would never want to hurt anyone.”

    Who’s hurting people now? Lying POS!

  • Anon2

    Brad Pitt cares about his fans, this stupid fool dived over the barrier…I wonder if any fans might have gotten kicked while the idiot “reporter’ was climbing/diving to get to Brad? It is a matter of safety. To let this fool keep getting away with such nonsense is to invite more outrageousness and copycats….ahem.

    When did Brad say that Will Smith? link? Rare for Brad or Angelina to say anything about anyone. …so it would be in the news. Not coming up on google.

    Brad and Angie were so hot last night, well they are hot at every red carpet. I am so glad Brad wasn’t hurt by that guy who is apparently a mental.

    Vitalii Sediuk Dropped By Publicist After Brad Pitt Prank

    Vitalii Sediuk attempted to attack Brad Pitt at the premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, and RumorFix has learned exclusively that the Ukranian reporter’s once-funny pranks are no longer a laughing matter and are now taking a serious toll on his career.

    RumorFix can reveal that Vitalii’s publicist dropped him as a client after the Wednesday night prank. “When we spoke on Monday he did not give me any indication that he was going to pull a prank,” Sediuk’s publicist tells us, adding, ” In fact he told me he was planning to cool off post Cannes Film Festival [where he crawled up America Ferrerra's ball gown].” But the prankster’s publicist isn’t the only one who has become increasingly disgusted with his behavior, as she reveals to us, “I later found out he was fired from his outlet Studio 1+1 and am as shocked as anyone.”

    After attempting to punch Pitt in the face during the premiere he attended with fiancee Angelina Jolie and five of their kids, Sediuk was hauled off by LAPD and arrested him on misdemeanor charges.

    The pseudo-entertainment reporter has had other run in’s with A-listers in the past, getting slapped by Will Smith after attempting to kiss him and rushing the stage at the 2013 Grammy’s and trying to upstage singer Adele.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk.

  • agent 38

    he gets paid by the movie studios to do these harmless stunts for publicity , everyone is talking about it now, imagine that ! it’s all a SHAM sham
    a thing that is not what it is purported to be.
    “the proposed legislation is a farce and a sham”

  • busted

    This bit@h messed with the wrong celebrity. As I said before someone should have done something long ago. he is getting more aggressive because nothing happened in the past.. and the trolls are so ridiculous on this. We have seen too many celebrities in the past lose their lives because nothing was done until it was too late.

    We live in crazy time and people like him doing stuff like this should be stopped now before he starts to up the anti.. he hit the wrong man this time..

  • Carey

    Sucker punching someone or sticking your fAce up their dress is not a prank its assault! The writers here should chAnge the wording. This vasoli guy is a real kook.

  • Rose

    @Anon2, #83, When Brad was promoting WWZ, I believe, A reporter on the Red carpet asked him what he thought about Will Smith slapping the fool. Brad said he had no idea what the reporter was talking about and that was the first he heard the story, but violence was not good then he moved on.

  • http://Justjared Susan

    Please ignore troll, even if it is a cooking one.
    The idiot was on probation from jumping on the stage at the Grammys to interrupt Adele, so this will be a violation of his probation, pity that Cali jails are over crowed, because he needs more than a slap on his limp wrist.

  • Charmaine

    I think on the TMZ video you can hear Brad say to the guy: “WTF is your problem?” I’m sure Brad was relieved that it was him attacked and not Angie, still unncessary. Brad and Angie have spoken in the past about having death threats sent to them, so they are already guarded when it comes to the public. It must have been terrifying for him. I hope this does not influence them signing autographs in the future. That would be unfortunate. This guy needs to be booked.

  • Cathy

    The idiots on this thread saying it was ok for this idiot to get away with this are repugnant. Brad was assaulted, he was punched. This idiot could have had a weapon on him. He should be jailed. It is not funny. I

    @busted: That’s why whenever I get a chance I bring up tamshitt threatening Angelina Jolie to kill her by stabbing her 100x with a knife to kill her, those were his words. I was very pissed to see this person making a very violent threat and nothing was done about it by JJ. Prem gave the fans Brad’s lawyer telephone # and address to send a letter. I know I personally called BRAD’S lawyer’s# and reported the threat to her. I also believe some of the fans took the threat lightly. I know when someone makes a direct and specific threat to kill someone it should not be taken lightly. I have worked with murders, and patients who have dual diagnosis, mentally I’ll with chemical abuse. These kind of mentally I’ll people, without treatment, behavior only escalates with time as time goes by. I will continue to repeat tamshitts threat whenever I feel the need to call the scumbag out.

  • Passing Poo

    That’s it, Brad. Don’t take any shit from anybody.

  • Rose

    @Cathy: You have to remember the troll, with the thousand moniker had threatened to kill Angelina by stabbing her 100x with a knife, so naturally tamshitt will feel that the other madman should not have been arrested. One crazy person thinking about another persons harassment and violent behavior is acceptable.

    I was wondering if Brad’s lawyer ever checked JJ about Tamroid’s threat to Angie. I wish the lawyer will contact JJ & let him know about a poster & why JJ is not banning him.
    What happened with WS is different from Brad. The stupid prankster pretended to be a reporter who hugged & kissed him on the check & was in the area with the press. And WS was within his rights to push & slap the idiot.
    With Brad, the idiot jumped the barrier & outright assaulted Brad. Brad did not have any idea who he was or knew it was an idiotic prank; his instinct kicked in & fought back, like most of us will do if we perceived we are being attacked. Tamroid is supporting the attacker because, he dreamed of doing it himself to either Brad or Angie. I don’t normally get bothered by trolls’ silly, & stupid posts, but Tamroid/Blessed One is mentally unstable & I believe a danger to anyone he dislike.. JJ really needs to ban his evil & vile aresse from this site.
