The Ukranian TV reporter who punched Brad Pitt in the face in front of shocked fans at Hollywood's May 28 Maleficent premiere was ordered to stay away from the actor and his fiancé, Angelina Jolie.

Vitalli Sediuk , 25, who pleaded no contest to battery charges in L.A. court on Friday, was also sentenced to three years of probation and a year's worth of therapy.

The journalist has a history of bad behavior around Hollywood's biggest stars: On May 16, Sediuk placed his head beneath actress America Ferrara's gown at the Cannes Film Festival, and he kissed Will Smith on the lips at a Moscow red carpet in 2012.

Luckily, Pitt took the scary incident in stride.

"Brad was fine, unharmed and went about his evening and watched the movie with his family," a source told PEOPLE of the actor, who attended the premiere with five of his children- Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and Knox, 5- to support the Disney film's star, Jolie.
