  • Report: Perez could face legal action for Miley Cyrus upskirt photo

    Controversial gossip blogger Perez Hilton is in hot water for posting an up-the-skirt photo of underage singer Miley Cyrus.

    Hilton Tweeted the photo Sunday warning readers, “If you are easily offended, do NOT click here Oh, Miley! Warning: truly not for the easily offended!” The photo, which was taken down amid controversy, shows Cyrus getting out of the car in a dress, seemingly without any underwear.

    But with Cyrus still five months shy of her 18th birthday, Hilton could be facing more than just fan disapproval – according to Salon.com, he could face legal action for child pornography.

    Los Angeles attorneys told Salon.com that Hilton “could be prosecuted on the state or federal level — or both — with a conviction potentially resulting in a 15 year sentence and lifetime registration as a sex offender

    Hilton responded to the controversy Tuesday via his website. Wearing a fake fur coat and no pants in a video blog, Hilton said the controversy was concocted by the media, arguing that Cyrus would not be “stupid” enough to go out in public without underwear, nor would he post the photo.

    On Tuesday, Hilton Tweeted an image that showed the teen wearing underwear, declaring it to be “proof” that she was wearing underwear in the photo in question.
