Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was left in a panic when actor Jesse Metcalfe threatened to murder him - after he "joked" the actor was gay.
Hilton - real name Mario Lavandeira - is openly homosexual and is infamous for making cutting jibes at the expense of unsuspecting celebrities.
However, Hilton was unnerved when Desperate Housewives hunk Metcalfe took speculation over his sexuality seriously.
He says, "That was quite negative energy. He was drunk and said he wanted me dead. I was quite shocked. I'd only joked that he might be gay, what's the big deal?"
