Perez Hilton has called Ariana Grande "shameful" after her fans flooded him with hatemail over his allegations that the Sam & Cat actress has been using cocaine.
The claims, which have been refuted as "not true" and will reportedly result in a lawsuit against the blogger, led Ariana's fans to send worrying threats relating to Perez's baby.
Ranting on Instagram, however, he seemed to think that his criticism of her appearance was more the issue. He wrote: "I know most @ArianaGrande fans are 12 years old - at least they almost all act like it - but ENOUGH is enough!

"Even 12 year olds KNOW better than to wish death on a baby and say the disgusting things that 99% of her fans have been spamming my Instagram with. I am NOT sorry I said #ArianaGrande was dressed awfully with boring hair at the Grammy Awards. I will not apologize.
"And, listen up, kids! For every day you continue to say vile things on my photos, I will continue to bring it to the attention of Ariana."
He continued: "Do YOU want her seeing all those tweets pointing to the fact that she has the worst fandom out there? She does. It's the truth. And, at this point, her silence on this matter is shameful.
"Her team KNOWS what her fans are saying about my family and doing to my Instagram photos. Ariana keeping quiet is condoning and promoting that behavior! Shameful, Ariana. Shameful! Quite being such an enabler and SAY SOMETHING!

"Until then, I guess I will be a baby myself and do what I think I need to do to get this bullshit to stop. All this silliness started over me saying I did not like her look! I had always supported and liked Ariana. Until now! Over her! And over her fans!"
Ariana has since broken her silence on Twitter, saying: "arianators, I know u don't like when ppl say bad things about me but please don't wish negativity upon any1. don't give up ur light, I ❤️ u."
Perez's original claims (Twitter)
Earlier this week, Perez had tweeted Ariana and her family, feigning concern that she was allegedly seen using cocaine at a party. Speaking to Gossip Cop, a source claimed that there was no truth to the rumour, and that the singer and actress has hired lawyers with a view to suing.
@ArianaGrande Are you okay? I heard someone saw you doing cocaine at a party this weekend. Stay away from drugs, Ariana!!!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) February 18, 2014
