Perez Hilton Sues Black Eyed Peas Manager, Apologizes For Stupidity

June 25, 2009

Perez Hilton has followed through on statements his lawyer made earlier this week by suing Black Eyed Peas manager Liborio "Polo" Molina for assault after Monday's alleged altercation.

According to reports from Reuters, the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court alledges battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The suit is stating that Molina hit Hilton numerous times and that the celebrity blogger suffered an eye injury. Perez is seeking unspecified damages.

After getting some serious heat from GLAAD, Hilton has also issued a statement on his website apologizing for uttering an anti-gay slur against Will.I.Am prior to the rumble:

I'm Sorry, I am sorry that any good work I have done for promoting equality may be tainted by me reclaiming a hurtful word — that's been personally used against me and the gay community — to hurt someone that was verbally attacking me. It was stupid.

Perez also refused to apologize directly to the gay-rights organization GLAAD. "I am not apologizing to GLAAD," he wrote. "I could care less about them, my former employers."

In his statement, Hilton said all monies from his lawsuit will be donated to the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
