Did Will.I.Am Beat Up Perez Hilton?

Posted By on June 22, 2009

    will.i.am, the frontman of The Black Eyed Peas, is being accused of beating up the well-known celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton. While in Toronto for the Much Music awards, Hilton broke the news on his twitter account saying "I'm in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitian 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."

    Perez then released a video statement on his site today. [watch here] Making the video as Mario Lavandeira (his legal name), Perez says "what happened to me in Toronto shouldn't happen to anyone. Violence is never the answer." [watch here]

    wil.i.am has responded saying that he didn't hit anyone. "It's one thing to tell your opinion and it's another thing to just go
overboard and just be blatantly rude for no apparent reason," Will
explained. [watch here] "I was the one that came to him with respect, and he was the
one who called me a f*ggot outside the club…Sounds like somebody
wants mad attention and is not really concerned about his
health…Shame on you, shame on your behavior, and that's just messed
up." [watch here]

    Now a video of the arguement between will.i.am and Perez Hilton has hit the net. [watch here] Starting in the middle of the fight, the two argue back and forth and Perez Hilton can be heard telling will.i.am "you're not a f**king artist … you're a f**king f*ggot." [watch here]
