In the aftermath of an alleged "up her skirt" snatch & grab publicity still - that Perez Hilton nabbed of Miley Cyrus (some claimed "sans panties") - a pack of vicious wolves started circling the scandal-chaser crying foul.
The lyrics of an old Beatle hit may end up haunting the salacious Queen of the Gossip blogs if the facts ring true.
"She was just seventeen! You know what I mean!"
According to legal eagles, Perez may have overstepped the line if he sought and caught nubile 17-year-old Miley Cyrus with her beaver (as TMZ cub reporters would kid) flapping in the wind.
Because Miley (in spite of her highly-sexed image) is underage - unexpected am-bushes like that - are strictly taboo!
Shortly after the controversy streaked like lighting around the Internet - and the twitter broadcast waves became clogged with hysterical speculation - Perez pulled the shot which was originally posted with a disclaimer.
"If you're easily offended, don't look," he warned tongue-in-cheek at his gossip web site.
Today, the tawdry tale was transformed (tailored if you like) - with the specific aim of saving Hilton from the iron-clad jaws of the men-in-blue - do 'ya think?
After all, a salon.com lawyer asserted that it was "suicidal" to post such a shot.
Hilton responded to the controversy by posting a video in which he lamented that the shot didn't show Cyrus' nether regions.
"She was wearing underwear. I posted the photo because I felt she was exiting the car in an unladylike fashion."
Meanwhile, Internet folks are in a frenzy, because they are miffed at the idea that Perez Hilton may have manipulated the photo to give the wrong impression.
Yeah, the mud is slinging fast and furious just about now.
