The general manager of Black Eyed Peas has been charged with assault amid allegations he and hip-hop star WILL.I.AM attacked celebrity blogger Perez Hilton at the weekend (begs20Jun09).
Polo Molina turned himself into Toronto authorities after the pair allegedly clashed with Hilton at a party after the MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada on Sunday night (21Jun09).
Hilton - real name Mario Lavandeira - claims he was left bleeding and in shock when will.i.am and Molina attacked him over comments the gossip king posted about Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie on his website.
In a posting on his website, Hilton claims Molina punched him "two or three times" during the incident, outside a local nightclub.
will.i.am immediately defended the allegations, blaming a crazed fan for Hilton's injuries.
According to TMZ.com, the band - currently on tour to promote new album The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies) - would have been held in the Canadian city without Molina's compliance.
