A few minutes on stage with Adele may cost Grammy Awards crasher Vitalii Sediuk six months in jail. Sediuk, who also kissed Will Smith at a Men In Black 3 premiere in 2012, has been officially charged for the incident.
If convicted, he could be hit with a $1,000 fine or a jail sentencebe. "The safety and protection of both participants and attendees of major events held in this city is a priority of my office," L.A. City Attorney Carmen Trutanich said in a statement (via E! News.) "In this age of heightened security, any person who intentionally crosses that line and acts in an irresponsible manner will be held accountable for his or her actions."
Back in February, the Ukrainian TV host managed to make it all the way to the Grammy stage and even said a few words before presenter Jennifer Lopez took action. "It's such an honor to receive this award," he said to the audience as Adele, 24, made her way up to accept the award for Best Pop Solo Artist. "I love you, Adele." He was later arrested on suspicion of trespassing.
Lopez's rep reacted to the on-stage incident, telling ETonline, "Like Adele said, [Lopez] is her 'good luck charm.'"
What do you think? Should Sediuk be charged for his Grammy crashing?
