Brad Pitt finally addressed the incident from last week when serial red carpet prankster, Vitalii Sediuk, jumped over the fan barricade and came crashing down on Pitt. He tells People, “I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.”

Pitt continued, “I don’t mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”

Now Sediuk has his own spin on the situation claiming he did not hot Pitt and was only going in for a hug. Ok…sure…”I’m a normal guy,” Sediuk said. “I’m not crazy. I’m doing this for fun.” He has been banned from entertainment events. But he adds, “I never hit, I never punched, I never slapped Brad Pitt in the fac. This is absolutely false information.”
