New York (ANI): Gossip blogger Perez Hilton was beaten bloody at a MuchMusic Awards after-party, and he is blaming Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am for the attack. While the band's manager, Polo Molina, has been charged with assault in the Sunday morning punch-up outside Toronto's Cobra club, Hilton claims that will.i.am (real name, William J. Adams) was the cowardly catalyst.
Hilton, real name, Mario Lavandeira, has posted a video on his blog, in which he has narrated how will.i.am prompted Polo to beat him up. The flamboyant blogger has said that after Fergie complained about his coverage of the group, will.i.am got right in his face, and started swearing at him.
"I don't need to respect you, and you're a fag. You're gay. And stop being such a faggot. His manager Polo comes up to me, clocks me in the eye and punches me two or three times. I think my eye is falling out of my head," the New York Post quoted Hilton as telling how will.i.am shouted at him.
On the other hand, will.i.am, has released his own video, in which he insisted that a fan belted Hilton and slammed the blogger for a Twitter post that claimed will.i.am and his security guards were the culprits. "This dude twists it and says I attacked him. He was the one that called me a faggot . . . Shame on you," he said.
Hilton again reacted on his video, saying: "You [bleep]ing mother[bleep]er. You are subhuman. I would have had more respect for you if you had hit me yourself. You're a coward! That is not an excuse for their manager to attack me. [Bleep] you, will.i.am . . . And Fergie, you're a fugly bitch."
Meanwhile, according to TMZ.com, Molina gave himself up after cops told the band that no one in the group would be allowed out of the country until an arrest was made. Hilton and a Black Eyed Peas rep didn''t return e-mails over the issue.
