Brad Pitt's Attacker Vitalii Sediuk Plans to Leave the United States

Brad Pitt makes his way through the airport alongside his team on Thursday (July 17) in Marseille, France.

It was reported this week that Vitalii Sediuk, the man who attacked Brad at the Maleficent earlier this year, plans on leaving the United States soon to pursue a career in modeling in London.

“Basically, I’m changing my life,” Vitalii told THR. “I would like to thank Hollywood for having me this two years and a half. It was an experience that taught me a lot in life. Most importantly, I would like to say sorry for celebrities that had to deal with my stunts and thank them for being tolerant to me all this time.”

“The motivation behind all my pranks was always positive even when some of them went wrong and were not understood by the public,” he added. “I came to the decision to move overseas, but there’s some part of me that will stay in this city. I know you will not miss me.”

Vitalii Sediuk Explains His Actions in New Video Interview

Vitalii Sediuk sits down for an interview with Mario Lopez for Extra on Monday morning (June 2) at Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City, Calif.

The 25-year-old former journalist explained his actions when he attacked Brad Pitt at a premiere last week and in his other infamous pranks.

“I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before,” Vitalii said. “It’s something different, controversial, extraordinary and it’s hard to explain. I’m normal, at least I believe so.”

“I apologize for inconveniences that I created to many celebrities dealing with my style of entertainment… I feel sorry that I create inconveniences for Brangelina family because I knew there were no kids around, but they were at the premiere, and I kind of stole the spotlight from such an important moment,” he added.

When asked about the sentencing he received this weekend, Vitalii said “I wouldn’t joke with the judge and I took them seriously because one thing you do for entertainment and other thing, when you have legal problems, and I have to tell you they’re so many consequences I experience now.”

Brad Pitt Releases Statement on Vitalii Sediuk's Red Carpet Attack

Brad Pitt is opening up for the first time about Vitalii Sediuk attacking him on the red carpet at the premiere of Maleficent last week in Los Angeles.

“I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me,” the 50-year-old actor said in a statement to People.

“I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go,” he continued. “I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.”

“I don’t mind an exhibitionist,” Brad added, “but if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”

Vitalii Sediuk has made more waves in Hollywood after he was identified as the man who punched Brad Pitt in the face at the premiere of Maleficent on Wednesday (May 28) in Hollywood.

The Ukrainian man has caused a ruckus at many Hollywood events over the years. He most recently stormed the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and hid under America Ferrera‘s dress during her film premiere.

Earlier this month, he showed up at the Met Gala in New York City and streaked his way through the crowd in a pink string bikini reminiscent of Borat’s green one.

Vitalii was banned from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles after his Grammys stunt and told The Hollywood Reporter, “Let’s be honest. There are only two major events in L.A.
