Black Eyed Peas Manager Charged In Perez Hilton Assault Case
Black Eyed Peas manager Liborio “Polo” Molina turned himself into authorities yesterday (June 22) and now faces one assault charge after celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was allegedly attacked in Toronto on Sunday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter news of the incident at the Soho Metropiltan Hotel following the Much Music Awards was made instant, with Hilton using his Twitter account in hopes of alerting authorities. “I was assaulted by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards,” he Tweeted at the time. “I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke.”
The attack was rumored to be the result of an on-going feud between Peas member Fergie and Perez. According to both parties, will.i.am stepped to Hilton at the hotel, which lead to Molina allegedly assaulting the gossip blogger.
Hilton and will.i.am both took to the internet on Monday issuing their sides of the story for fans over several video clips, with the BEP's frontman denying blame for Hilton's beatdown.
