The guy who bum rushed Brad Pitt at a Hollywood premiere is still hung up on Pitt -- even as he begins serving his sentence for the attack. 

Vitalii Sediuk was wearing a tank top emblazoned with Brad's pic while he picked up garbage as part of his court-ordered community service.

Sediuk pled no contest to the attack -- he was ordered to stay away from Pitt and Angelina Jolie and has to do 20 days labor -- mostly clean-up duty.

Brad Pitt. He even makes trash look glamorous.

Brad Pitt's red carpet attacker just pled no contest to battery and unlawful activity at an event -- and will do 20 days community labor for that crime ... but more importantly, the judge blocked him from getting even a sniff of any future Hollywood events.   

Vitalii Sediuk appeared before the judge in L.A. County court to enter his plea -- and in addition to the hard labor ... he was sentenced to 36 months probation, $220 in fines, and ordered to stay 500 yards away from red carpets, movie premieres, and award shows. 

Sediuk was already on probation for getting on stage with Adele and Jennifer Lopez at the 2013 Grammys -- so, he's now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Staples Center and the L.A. Live complex, where the Grammys are held.

The judge instructed the Ukrainian prankster to stay away from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie -- and the Hollywood and Highland shopping center, where the Brad attack went down.

He'll be released from custody shortly.

EXCLUSIVE



The guy who attacked Brad Pitt on the red carpet last night violated a cardinal rule of fighting -- never hit a guy with glasses ... especially when he's surrounded by a team of security goons.

TMZ broke the story ... Ukrainian troublemaker Vitalii Sediuk lunged at Pitt at the "Maleficent" premiere ... hitting him in the face and breaking the designer sunglasses he was wearing. Sediuk was immediately subdued ... and hauled off to jail.

0528-brad-pitt-GettyLaw enforcement sources tell us ... Brad wasn't hurt in the attack -- just stunned -- but a temporary emergency restraining order is now in place ... ordering Sediuk to stay at least 500 feet way from Pitt for the next 5 days.

We're told the case has been sent to the L.A. City Attorney for possible prosecution.

Sediuk is already on 3 years probation for crashing the Grammys in 2013 ... when he appeared on stage and tried to accept Adele's award.

The Great Snack Debate

Brad Pitt and Angelina Joile were given the ultimate "Sophie's Choice" Saturday night in Hollywood -- don't worry, their kids are fine -- but the couple's taste buds may NEVER BE THE SAME!

Brangelina were leaving the Independent Spirit Awards last night and our photog blew Brad Pitt's mind with a simple question.

If he had to choose one snack to eat for the rest of his life -- between Jell-O or pudding -- which would it be?

Angelina Jolie got another toughie from our photog -- Cheez-Its or Goldfish?  Like a true fembot, she's stumped.

So, we gotta ask ...

0725_maddox_jolie_pitt_ipad_mainBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's son fell victim to everyone's biggest fear -- the dreaded iPad heist -- after a man allegedly broke into the family's SUV and jacked not one, but TWO of the high-priced Apple tablets.

Sources on the scene tell TMZ, 11-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt, some friends, and a family bodyguard went to Hollywood Sports Paintball Park in Bellflower, CA, last weekend ... and while Maddox was playing inside, some jackass jimmied their SUV door and snatched the iPads and a cell phone.

But before the guy could make a clean getaway ... we're told someone spotted him in the act, and alerted security guards -- who nabbed him and then called police.

Our sources say the man was arrested, and the stolen items were returned.

A rep for the paintball park tells us, he felt so bad about the whole thing ... he hooked Maddox and his bodyguard up with a bunch of free food and other stuff.

Angelina Jolie

First Appearance Since

Mastectomy Announcement

6/2/2013 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0602_brad_angelina_gettyIn her first red carpet appearance since announcing she underwent a double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie posed for pics with Brad Pitt today at the London premiere of his movie "World War Z."

In an op-ed piece for the New York Times last month, Jolie revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy back in February because "doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer."

Since making the announcement, Jolie has been recovering at home in Los Angeles before taking on her next project -- directing a film called "Unbroken."

"I am fortunate to have a partner, Brad Pitt, who is so loving and supportive," Jolie writes.

"For any woman reading this, I hope it helps you to know you have options."

FINANCES EXPOSED

By Celebrity Hackers

EXCLUSIVE

Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga are the two newest victims of the celebrity hackers who had already exposed the financial secrets of Michelle Obama and Beyonce ... TMZ has learned.

The hackers returned to the Internet after a brief hiatus ... and immediately hit six more A-list victims, including Angelina, Gaga, NRA advocate Wayne LaPierre, Dennis Rodman, Michael Vick, Secret Service Director Julia Pierson and Robert De Niro.

The hackers have posted what they claim to be the social security numbers, mortgage amounts, credit card info, car loans, banking and other info for the celebs listed on their site.

The hackers' previous website was shut down by its host -- but it's now back up and running with a new domain extension (.re) that suggests it's based out of the French island of Réunion located off the coast of Madagascar.

Along with Beyonce and Michelle, the hackers previously hit names like Mel Gibson, Britney Spears, Ashton Kutcher, Hillary Clinton, Kim Kardashian, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kanye West, Mitt Romney, and Tiger Woods. 

As we reported, the FBI has been investigating the hackers from the beginning ... no arrests have been made.

Angelina Jolie has just made it crystal clear ... she and Brad Pitt did NOT secretly get married.

You'll recall, Angelina swapped out her $500,000 diamond engagement ring for a simple gold band during a recent humanitarian trip to the Congo ... probably so it wouldn't get lost or stolen ... but that didn't stop everyone from speculating that she and Brad had wed on the DL.

Nevertheless, Angelina put those rumors to rest once and for all today. Check out the video for her answer.

Billy Bob Thornton tells TMZ ... he'd be "more than happy" to attend Angelina Jolie's wedding (whenever she and Brad Pitt decide to tie the knot) ... if he's actually invited.

BBT: "I don't go out of town much ... but yeah, you never know, I'd be happy to ... I'd be more than happy to, absolutely."

So what would BBT get for the couple that has it all? Check out the footage and see what Billy thinks would be the "easiest" wedding gift he could give to his ex.
