Celebrity Prankster Vitalii Sediuk Claims He's Leaving the U.S.

Vitalii Sediuk, the celebrity prankster who was recently thrown in jail for punching Brad Pitt in the face at the Los Angeles premiere of Maleficent (fun prank!), told the Hollywood Reporter that he's done with pranking and moving out of Los Angeles for good.

After leaving LA, the 25-year-old Ukrainian plans to pursue a modeling career in London. In speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, he begins by saying that he is "changing this life," and continues:

"I would like to thank Hollywood for having me this two years and a half. It was an experience that taught me a lot in life. Most importantly, I would like to say sorry for celebrities that had to deal with my stunts and thank them for being tolerant to me all this time."

Sediuk, who—before punching Brad Pitt in the face—grabbed Bradley Cooper and Leonardo Dicaprio's crotches, tried to kiss Will Smith, and crawled under America Ferrera's dress, maintains that his pranks were "positive," even when they were not "understood" by absolutely anyone else:

"The motivation behind all my pranks was always positive even when some of them went wrong and were not understood by the public. I came to the decision to move overseas, but there's some part of me that will stay in this city. I know you will not miss me."

Haha, aww. I mean, you're right! Definitely no one will miss you (because of all that awful shit you always did?), but it does seem a bit sad to end on that note. Luckily, he doesn't. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Sediuk closes out his farewell message with an emoticon of a winking smiley face and a hashtag. "#WillMissLosAngeles."

#OKBye ;)
