Twitter is apparently suitable for battles other than the bloody ones being fought over the election in Iran. Perez Hilton fired off several Tweets from Toronto early Monday morning about an alleged assault by Polo Molina, manager of Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas, following it up with an emotional, tearful, profanity-laden video blog. And Hilton’s Tweets were countered by responses from reality star Tila Tequila, a friend of Will.I.Am.
According to Hilton’s video blog, he was in Toronto for the MuchMusic Video Awards, where he was confronted by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas about his bad review of the band’s new single. Hilton claims he was later “shouldered” by a member of the band’s entourage, and then confronted again by Fergie at an after-party.
Then, according to Hilton, at a second after-party, Will.I.Am approached him and said, “Yo, I need you to do me a favor. I need you to never write about my band on your Website again.” The two argued, and Hilton admitted to calling Will.I.Am “gay” and a “faggot” to show that he wasn’t intimidated. Then, outside the club, Hilton claims that Molina “comes up from behind and clocks me in the eye, right here, and punches me two or three times.”
Hilton said he resorted to Twitter as a “public cry for help” because Will.I.Am and his entourage were staying at the same hotel and he was afraid, adding that the police weren’t making his plight a priority. He thanked people who read his Tweets and called the police.
He also claimed that Will.I.Am lied in a video that he posted, and he cursed out the singer and his manager on several occasions during his video blog.
This blogger’s personal favorite moment of Hilton’s video blog: “I like writing about other peoples’ drama. I don’t want drama in my own life.”
Hilton’s four Tweets, as reported by SimsScoop.com:
I’m in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please.
I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No Joke.
Still waiting for the police. The bleeding has stopped. I need to document this. Please, can the police come to the SoHo Met Hotel.
I won’t be talking about this any further. It is in the hands of the authorities.
Unless Perez is drunk N someone knocked him out N he thinks it was a Will.I.Am look-a-like. But Will ahs no idea what Perez is talkin about.
If Perez DID get hit by a security guard or a ‘black guy’ that does NOT mean WILL.I.AM did it! SO WRONG! Well at least We know the TRUTH NOW.
