Man arrested for trespassing at Grammy Awards
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who attempted to upstage Adele at Sunday’s Grammy Awards faces a possible trespassing charge for his latest awkward celebrity interaction.
Vitalli Sediuk spoke briefly before Adele took the stage and received the telecast’s first Grammy Award. He was shooed away by presenter Jennifer Lopez and video of the ceremony shows him walking off the stage while Adele delivered her acceptance speech, crediting Lopez as a “good luck charm.”
Jail records show Sediuk spent the next several hours in custody and was ordered to appear for a March 4 court date. He told The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported his arrest, that he did not have a ticket to the show and took musician Adam Levine’s seat before going on stage.
Sediuk’s intrusion came after police increased security at the Grammys due to the ongoing manhunt for a rogue ex-officer targeting police and their families.
Police said they had no details on Sediuk’s arrest, other than it was made by private security at the show.
Publicists for the Grammy Awards did not return emails Tuesday seeking comment on the incident.
Sediuk, 24, has gained notoriety for other stunts involving celebrities. Will Smith slapped the 24-year-old last year after attempting to kiss him on the red carpet of the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black III.” Madonna received a bouquet of hydrangeas from Sediuk at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and promptly stashed them under a table, declaring, “I absolutely loathe hydrangeas.”
