Perez Hilton has taken to his eponymous website – and his Twitter – to accuse Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas of assault. In a video he made today, Perez chronicles his side of what went down at an after party for last night’s Much Music Awards in Toronto.
According to the blogger, a heated conversation with the musician – apparently over things posted on his blog about Fergie and the group’s new album – turned violent. Perez claims that he called the BEP member “a faggot,” and that Will.i.am and his manager, Polo, then followed him outside, where Polo punched him “two or three times,” as well as in the eye (it’s unclear if Will ever did anything physical). Perez then took to Twitter, writing, “I need to file a police report.” The authorities are apparently now involved.
Not to be outdone, Will has made his own video detailing the night’s events. In it, he describes a supposedly mature conversation in which he asked Perez not to bash his band on his site, followed by what he describes as fans going crazy – and possible punching Perez – after the blogger dropped the f-bomb.
