Ukrainian TV reporter jumps barriers and punches superstar

Serial prankster and attention-seeker Vitalii Sediuk jumped over the fan barriers at the Maleficent premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, approached silver screen heartthrob Brad Pitt who was on the red carpet with his wife, Angelina Jolie, and proceeded to allegedly hit the 50 year-old actor in the face.

Security guards managed to intercept the 25 year-old and hold him till the LAPD came to take him into custody. He is reportedly being held on Dhs80,000 bail after being booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery. Ever the professional, Brad continued to smile and sign autographs for fans with onlookers saying he looked unhurt by the incident.

The Ukrainian has a history of causing disturbances at celeb-events with Will Smith (who slapped him at the Men In Black III premiere), Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper being amongst his targets. He also crashed the Grammys and got onstage durng Adele's acceptance speech and tried to peek under America Ferrera’s dress in Cannes 2014 during the premiere of How to Train Your Dragon 2
