Black Eyed Peas Manager Charged With Alleged Perez Hilton Attack
Liborio "Polo" Molina, manager for hip-hop/pop group Black Eyed Peas, is being charged with hitting celebrity blogger Perez Hilton Monday morning outside of Toronto's Cobra nightclub, the Toronto Star reports.
Molina is scheduled to appear in Toronto's Old City Hall court on August 5, facing one count of assault. In a video statement posted on PerezHilton.com, Hilton accuses Molina of approaching him from behind and hitting him in the eye several times, drawing blood.
Shortly after 3 a.m. Monday, Hilton announced via his Twitter page that he had been assaulted by "Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards" and that he needed to "file a police report."
Within an hour, the Black Eyed Peas frontman released a video response to Hilton's accusations, dismissing them as lies.
Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas were in Toronto to participate in the MuchMusic Awards. Hilton says the incident developed over the course of several exchanges throughout the night.

Perez Hilton's video (explicit language warning):
I'm not much for keeping up with celeb gossip mainly due to the fact that I don't have much interest in people famous for their lack of talent and, especially in this case, intellect. While I do not care for either party involved, I was intrigued by the reactions sparked from this incident. On top of that, I must say, I was very amused with Perez's ability to be an overt sissy about everything.
So I'm interested in AF's opinion. What do you think of the situation? Whose side do you take? Was it wrong for Polo to hit Perez? Or, like me, did you delight the fact that he got hit?
