Update: The general manager of the Black Eyed Peas,  Polo Molina, has turned himself into the Toronto police station and charged with one count of assault. He is due to appear at Toronto’s Old City Hall court on August 5.


While the winners of last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards deserved all the praise and well wishes from last night, the big story today is what happened AFTER the show.

Celeb gossip blogger Perez Hilton is accusing Black Eyed Peas front man Will.I.Am and their manager Polo Molina of physically attacking him! The blogger claims that the musician and his manager struck him outside of a Toronto club after the two exchanged words at an afer-party.

Perez started a series of intense Tweets around 3:45 A.M. “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.”

Now, both have proclaimed their side of the story via their respective websites (of course).
