Brad Pitt has now gotten a restraining order against Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who struck the actor in the face at the Maleficent premiere on Wednesday, Gossip Cop has learned.

As we previously reported, Sediuk, who has a history of causing problems with stars of red carpets, jumped over a barricade and hit Pitt as he was walking the red carpet at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Security immediately intervened, and police took Sediuk away in handcuffs.

Thankfully, Pitt wasn’t hurt during the attack, but we’re told his designer sunglasses were broken. Sediuk, who could face jail time, must now stay 500 feet away from Pitt, who came to the premiere to support his longtime partner Angelina Jolie.
