Brad Pitt was hit in the face by a crazed man while on the red carpet for the world premiere of his wife Angelina Jolie’s film ‘Maleficent,’ May 28. And HollywoodLife.com was able to get the EXCLUSIVE details about what went down that night and how Brad got away from his attacker who is a known celebrity prankster.
Brad Pitt, 50, was struck in the face by a serial red carpet crasher while he and Angelina Jolie,38, were signing autographs during the Maleficent world premiere, May 28, in LA. The dangerous attacker was immediately grabbed by security and then got into a violent skiffle on the carpet before they wrestled him away into a police car.
Brad Pitt Attacked By Crazed Man At ‘Maleficent’ World Premiere
Vitalii Sediuk, who was identified as the attacker who tried to put his head up America Ferrera’s skirt at the Cannes premiere of How To Train Your Dragon 2, this time struck Brad in the face after he jumped the barriers that separated Brad from the crowd at the El Capitan theatre.
We broke down the scary incident on our VH1 morning show, The Gossip Table. Check out the clip below:
“Brad Pitt was standing before my fence and the guy next to me jumped over the fence on Brad,” a source revealed exclusively to HollywoodLife.com. “The security jumped on the attacker and Brad tried to get away.”
Brad attended the premiere with Angelina and their kids. Fortunately, Brad was not standing near them when Vitalii jumped the fences.
The looney attacker is originally from the Ukraine and has a long history of crashing the party. This time around he was arrested for misdemeanor battery and held in police custody before being released.
In 2012 he pushed Will Smith to his limits on the red carpet. Will ended up slapping Vitalii in the face after he tried to kiss him on the lips on the red carpet at the Men In Black 3 premiere.
