It turns out that Vitalii Sediuk, the man who almost toppled Kim over after the Balmain fashion show, Sept. 25, is the same guy who punched Brad in May of 2014, at the ‘Maleficent’ premiere in LA. Vitalii was ordered to complete psychological counseling but it doesn’t sound like he learned his lesson!
Kim Kardashian, 33, and Brad Pitt, 50, now have something in common. Nope, it’s not fame, cars or clothes, they have both been targeted by Vitalii Sediuk. He is a 25-year-old Ukrainian media personality, who makes it his mission to terrorize celebrities. He’s attacked and pranked everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Jennifer Lopez but he tells the Daily Mail that he Kim isn’t mad at him because he meant no true harm.
Kim Kardashian Attacked By Notorious Prankster Who Did Same Thing To Brad Pitt
After Kim got the scare of a lifetime when he tried to tackle her, after bypassing her bodyguard, he said: “I hope Kim is OK and won’t be mad at me as I didn’t mean any harm. Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!”
But Vitalii claims that the reason he did this has nothing to do with Kim, it was aimed at the United States because he’s currently banned from reentering the country.
“The prank with Kim was my protest that US banned me from entering the country,” he said.
Vitalii’s Ordered To Stay 500 Feet Away From Brad
This all started when Vitalii jumped over a barricade and punched Brad in the face, at the El Capitan theatre in May of 2014. He was immediately wrestled to the ground by six bodyguards, and an emergency restraining order was immediately issued against Vitalii. He was subsequently ordered to stay 500 feet away from Brad.
Later, Vitalii was ordered to undergo 52 counseling sessions, stemming from the incident with Brad. His next hearing was set for Jan. 8, 2015 but it looks like it may be moved up if Kim presses charges.
Kris Jenner, Kim’s mom, screamed out “stop it,” as Kim was being shoved into the side of a car by Vitalii. Kanye West didn’t look to happy about what had just happened and looked like he was ready to fight Vitalii.
Luckily, Kim was okay and not injured. We bet she’s shaken up though. Vitalii also grabbed onto Leo’s leg at a premiere in February, but he didn’t seem too upset by it. The same thing happened to Bradley Cooper at the SAG Awards in January 2014 and also to America Ferrera‘s dress at the How To Train Your Dragon 2 Cannes premiere.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Vitalii should be thrown in jail?
