Perez Hilton sues Black Eyed Peas' road manager

Posted on

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton (whose real name is Mario Lavandeira) filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court against Polo Molina, the road manager of the band Black Eyed Peas, according to Reuters. Hilton alleges that Molina punched him in the face on June 21 at a MuchMusic Video Awards afterparty in Toronto. According to Hilton, Molina was upset about the blogger’s online criticism of the band’s newest album. Hilton is seeking unspecified damages for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Toronto police have already charged Molina with assault.
