Perez Hilton Says Will.I.Am Beat Him Up & Will.I.Am's Video Response

Perez Hilton was in Toronto tonight for the Much Music Awards, along with many other more interesting celebrities, and as of a few minutes ago was using Twitter to "call" the police, and claiming that Will.i.Am beat him up:

I'm in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please.about 1 hour ago from Sidekick

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.
44 minutes ago from Sidekick

I spoke to my lawyer. I really need to talk to the authorities. Please come to the SoHo Met Hotel. Have called the police. Need them here. 21 minutes ago from Sidekick

"The Toronto police are here now. Thank you. Please stop calling them.4 minutes ago from Sidekick " 4 minutes ago from Sidekick

Note to Perez: I know twitter's getting a lot of hype lately, but I'm pretty sure the police still respond to this old-fashioned thing known as "calling 911."

Many people are questioning the veracity of Perez's claims, and in another sign of the New Media Apocalypse, none other than Tila Tequila is at the forefront of investigative journalism on this story:

Why do people have to be such drama queens and lie or exaggerate?? Will.I.Am is my homie and he would never do that! Shame to blame him. SMH

Not sure who to believe, but here's what I do know: much as I was moved by how Twitter was used in Iran this last week, I'm glad to see it has been reclaimed for its true purpose: celebrity-oversharing train wrecks.

UPDATE: Will.I.Am just started his own Twitter page, and posted these videos on it to give his side of the story:
