Brad Pitt received an unwelcome surprise while walking the red carpet with Angelina Jolie at the big Los Angeles premiere of Maleficent Wednesday night.
While signing autographs for fans on the red carpet, Brad was struck in the face by serial prankster, 25-year-old Vitalii Sediuk. Sediuk jumped over the barrier and allegedly slapped Brad in the face, but security quickly intervened, pulling Brad back to safety against the wall. He was not injured in the attack.
The prank resulted in Sediuk’s arrest on suspicion of battery, according to CNN. This is not the first scene Sediuk has caused at a celebrity event.
He’s a known troublemaker at high-profile events and is the prankster behind stunts like storming the GRAMMY stage when Adele received her award, hugging Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper around the knees, and most recently (and disturbingly) putting his head up America Ferrara’s dress at the Cannes film festival. He was even slapped by Will Smith after attempting to kiss him at an event.
