Vitalii Sediuk attempted to attack Brad Pitt at the premiere of Maleficent at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, and RumorFix has learned exclusively that the Ukranian reporter’s once-funny pranks are no longer a laughing matter and are now taking a serious toll on his career.
RumorFix can reveal that Vitalii’s publicist dropped him as a client after the Wednesday night prank. “When we spoke on Monday he did not give me any indication that he was going to pull a prank,” Sediuk’s publicist tells us, adding, ” In fact he told me he was planning to cool off post Cannes Film Festival [where he crawled up America Ferrerra’s ball gown].” But the prankster’s publicist isn’t the only one who has become increasingly disgusted with his behavior, as she reveals to us, “I later found out he was fired from his outlet Studio 1+1 and am as shocked as anyone.”
After attempting to punch Pitt in the face, Sediuk was hauled off by LAPD and arrested on misdemeanor charges.
The pseudo-entertainment reporter has had other run-in’s with A-listers in the past, getting slapped by Will Smith after attempting to kiss him and rushing the stage at the 2013 Grammys and trying to upstage singer Adele.
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
