After several bizarre antics, the red carpet prankster Vitalii Sediuk has finally decided to offer an apology to his celebrity victims.

Sediuk has made headlines for all the wrong reasons, with some of his antics including scaling a barrier at the Maleficent premiere to get to Brad Pitt, looking under America Ferrera's skirt and hugging the crotches of Bradley Cooper and Leonardo DiCaprio. But now it's all over, because the prankster intends to leave Hollywood for good.

"Basically, I'm changing my life. 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," He told The Hollywood Reporter.

And before he leaves, Sediuk wants the world to know that his pranks were not intended to be malicious.

"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," he continued.

So what has made the controversial Ukrainian prankster want to leave Los Angeles? Apparently, he'd like to pursue a modeling career in London.

Among the people who will not miss him include the celebrities he has previously harassed, but perhaps his encounter with Pitt was the final straw, because not only was he slapped with a restraining order, he also got 20 days of community service.
