Perez Hilton And will.i.am Have A Twargument
June 22, 2009 at 9:23 AM (PT)
In a series of late-night (or early-morning) TWITTER posts, PEREZ HILTON claimed that he was assaulted by the BLACK EYED PEAS' WILL.I.AM and his security guards at a hotel in TORONTO, reports MTV. "At around 3:45a MONDAY (6/22), HILTON wrote on his TWITTER account that he was "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," a second TWEET read. "I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke."
"In a series of subsequent posts, HILTON urged his readers to call the police, said he had spoken to his attorney, and finally wrote that 'the TORONTO police are here now ... [they] are investigating the assault now. I did the right thing by reporting it.'
"I won't be talking about this any further," HILTON wrote. "It is in the hands of the authorities."
"Of course, HILTON then spent the next five hours answering fans' Tweeted queries about the assault, assuring MILEY CYRUS that he was 'not kidding' and addressing WILL.I.AM himself, writing 'there are multiple witnesses. You can deny all you want. The truth is the truth and I am telling the truth.'
"Hoping to tell his side of what happened, WILL.I.AM posted a video on DIPDIVE, the site he helped create last year when he released his BARACK OBAMA 'Yes We Can' video. According to him, it was HILTON that was the aggressor, and while the two did have a rather, uh, spirited discussion, he had nothing to do with the gossip maven's alleged assault."
