In the latest Perez Hilton vs. Will.I.Am, the gossip gangster has decided to sue his manager for smacking him after the Much Music Awards. The two, got into a verbal disagreement and Perez decided to call Will.I.Am a f**got and said his music sucked.
His manager, Polo Molina, supposedly punched him in the back of the head. Perez, jumped on Twitter asking fans to call the police in Toronto. I guess 911 on his cell phone didn’t work. The drama unfolded and of course Polo Molina was arrested. Crazy stuff.
A new front has opened in the battle between Perez Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas manager accused of hitting him: a civil lawsuit.
The celebrity blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, sued the Peas’ manager in Los Angeles on Wednesday for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He is seeking unspecified damages of more than $25,000.
The suit states Hilton is seeking to protect his rights to free speech and claims Polo Molina attacked him because he made critical comments about the Black Eyed Peas’ new album.
Molina was arrested in Toronto early Monday after he allegedly punched Hilton following a heated argument between the blogger and Black Eyed Peas leader will.i.am. He is due to appear in court on Aug. 5.
They both should apologize and get over it. Violence is never the answer, racial or gay slurs are not either. GLAAD has asked Perez to apologize for using hateful words in the confrontation. Perez issued a statement on his blog, fans are evenly divided between the two.
Celebrities have come to the defense of Will.I.Am, stating that the singer was completely respectful to Perez during the confrontation. It sounds like maybe Perez had too much to drink.
Later today, it was annouced that Molina was on probation for a DUI. If convicted of assault, he faces 6 months in jail. OUCH! Can’t we all just get along?
