Perez Hilton may have temporarily lost the battle—for once—when the manager for the Black Eyed Peas allegedly attacked him, but he intends to win the war in court. The celebrity blogger filed a civil lawsuit today in Los Angeles against Polo Molina, who he claims hit him three times for comments he made about the Black Eyed Peas’ new album on his website. Perez is seeking over $25,000 in unspecified damages for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, which he claimed violated his First Amendment rights. “Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence,” said Bryan Freedman, Hilton’s lawyer. Hilton, an openly gay man, also called band member will.i.am a “faggot” and refused to apologize at the request of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
