Perez Hilton: Angelina Jolie Attorney Threatening To Sue Me
On Sunday, Hilton announced on Instagram, “In other news, #AngelinaJolie’s lawyers at Greenberg Glusker have just threatened to sue me for my coverage of her split from #BradPitt.” He went on, “ME!! I have always been one of Angelina Jolie’s loudest and strongest supporters and defenders!!!!! This was my email back to Angelina’s lawyers, #BertFields and #PriyaSapori. Glad I’m not running for president!!”
Hilton, who is so scared of Gossip Cop that he blocks us on Twitter, shared a screengrab of the email he claims to have sent in response to the alleged threat. In it, the notorious blogger says he’s “livid” and demands Jolie herself see the communication. “Unless she wants to turn me into an enemy, I want an apology right now,” he warned.
It’s not clear what the controversial star did to allegedly earn the ire of Jolie’s camp. In his response, he insisted he did “nothing illegal,” and noted, “We stand 100% behind our reporting.” Hilton ended his reply by writing, “F*ck YOU. And suck my d*ck!”
A look at Hilton’s archives suggests he’s mostly regurgitated other outlets’ reporting on Jolie’s split from Pitt, regardless of whether it’s accurate or not. That, of course, is his usual copy-and-paste style. It’s also worth noting that he misspells the last name of Jolie’s attorney, which is Sopori, not Sapori. Gossip Cop has reached out to Jolie’s lawyer for comment.
UPDATE: Hilton claims he’s received an apology from Jolie’s camp.
