I hit you Perez? Come on dude! I didn't hit you. Instead of calling police, you Twittered that I assaulted you. Sounds like somebody wants mad attention.
He then added
He added: 'They are lies. Shame on you. Shame on your behaviour. That's just messed up.'
It has been reported the spat originated from Perez's constant criticism of the Black Eyed Peas, with one report stating
Perez has frequently criticised Fergie's fashion sense on his blog, labelling her 'fugly', which mean 'fucking ugly', and has slammed the Black Eyed Peas' latest album The E.N.D. and track Boom Boom Pow
Later that evening, Will.i.am allegedly approached Perez outside the Cobra club, telling him 'never write things about my band on your website again'.
Openly gay Perez admitted he hit back with several slurs: 'I told him, "And you know what, I don't need to respect you. And you're a f**got. You're gay and stop being such a f**got.'
The alledged assualt is said to have occurred outside the Cobra nightclub following the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, Canada on Sunday night.
