Perez & Shar in "Celebrity Rap Superstar" Drama!

9/14/2007 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comUPDATE: Perez finally called us back and tells us that MTV has agreed to go LIVE next week! "When people tune in to the show next week they will (hopefully) see what really happened on the last episode," he says. "MTV has assured me that starting with this coming Thursday's airing, Celebrity Rap Superstar is going to be 100% live and real, as it should be! This will be super exciting. ANYTHING can happen. Shar and I have hugged it out. And DaBrat and me are cool too!"

According to our spies, Gossip Gangstar Perez Hilton was spittin' his rhyme during a taping of MTV's "Celebrity Rap Superstar,"when the sound on his mic went out (check one-two!). Our sources say Perez kept rapping, but the producers stopped him and told him he could start over because of technical difficulties. Perez finished the song ... and walked off stage.

Shar Jackson was up next. Sources tell us she started just fine, then fumbled her rap, forgetting the lyrics. Rather than letting her fumble her way through, producers allowed her to stop and restart her performance -- possibly changing the competition! We're told Perez lost it and rushed the stage, hollerin' that it wasn't right to let Shar re-do her song!

Then, it got crazazy!

Perez stormed off the set to his trailer. We're told that he told producers that the show was now phony, and refused to go on next week unless the show was live! We're told producers also let "Laguna Beach" star Jason Wahler start over, after he effed up his lyrics, which sent Perez into a tailspin. The drama!

For their part, MTV says. "We had technical mishaps early on -- which allowed the first two contestants to "re-start." So, to be fair, every contestant was given the option of performing twice. We wanted nothing more than to make this competition as fair for the contestants as possible."

We tried to reach Perez, but he refused to call us back. How rude!

I'M A SHAR FAN TOO. I MEAN WHAT HAS SHE DONE TO ANYONE. SHE MINDS HER OWN BUSINESS. SHE DID NOT ASK TO BE DRAGGED INTO ANY OF THIS MESS BETWEEN BRITNEY AND K-FED. I THINK SHE HAS TALENT BUT JUST HAS NOT BEEN GIVEN A CHANCE. NOW THAT SHE IS GETTING SOME ATTENTION I THINK SHE SHOULD TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT AND DO AS MUCH AS SHE CAN. SHE JUST SEEMS LIKE A GOOFY GIRL TO ME THAT MADE BAD CHOICE IN A MAN. WHAT GIRL HASN'T?

This guy, and I use the term guy loosely, has no business being even remotely famous.

I think Perez sucks. His website use to be one of the top three celebrity cites I visited and now he is awful. He complains about all the other real stars, calls them disgusting and immature names, and complains about their faults that he displays ( i.e. crude, fat, ugly). I really think that since some how perez got popular he totally sucks. Thanks tmz for staying true!

Perez is right.....there are to many "reality" shows now-a-days that are far from reality....I don't think that he held anything personal against the indivuals themselves, he just wanted it to be real. GOOD FOR HIM!!!!

who in the hell are any of these people? shar jackson will forever be known as britney spear's ex-hubby's ex. no matter how hard she tries that is the only reason she is in the public's eye. and for everyone who complains about britney not staying home with her kids...doesn't shar have 4 children? (and i don't even like britney!) i like reality shows like survivor and amazing race...but i am so tired of all the "d" list celebrities making a last ditch effort for one more shot at fame. if they had any discernible talent in the first place..they would not be "d" list celebrities! america..put down that remote...back away from the tv...stop putting money in these people's pockets. they will never ever go away until we do.
let's all go to the library and read a book instead.

I think Perez was treated unfairly. There were technical difficulties during his rap. Everybody else shouldn't get a redo just because they forgot their lyrics. It's a competition!

I don't think its fair and I hardly ever think Perez is right!
You don't let someone have a redo b/c the forget the lyrics. Tech difficulties OK!
Really this is a question?

TEAM PEREZ!!! he is SOOO right. It's a COMPETITION people. MTV is trying to LIE to us. Perez's mic messed up because MTV tech staff doesnt know what they are doing, but he KEPT SINGING without a working mic. He kept at it for about 20-30 more seconds until a producer came on the loud speaker and told him to stop and restart since there was no sound. He is a REAL performer.
But then Shar and Jason FORGET their lines and MESS UP and they can RE-DO it? WTF!!! Efren didnt get a chance to redo it the first two episodes. its not fair.
it's supposed to be a LIVE COMPETITION. MTV obviously wants Shar to win. Why let her re-do it. that's not real.
