Perez Hilton's sister has defended his behaviour in the CBB house, blaming it on the blogger missing his son.
Perez - real name Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr. - has been causing chaos in the CBB house since Day 1.
But despite his outrageous beahviour that's see almost every one of the other housemates turn on him - and resulted in thousands of complaints - he's still in the house.
In fact, Perez is even being considered as a potential winner in Friday's final.
This week his sister has jumped to his defence and claimed that he's not being himself in the house.
Barbara Lavandeira put Perez's behaviour down to his missing son, telling Closer magazine that he's only ever "caring and sincere."
She explained: "He's not this mean and vile individual that a few housemates keep saying he is."
Barbara said Perez being away from his son - Mario Armando Lavandiera III - could be why he's gone off the rails.
She told the publication this week: "The biggest factor affecting Perez's behaviour is that this is the longest he's been away from his son - he'll have missed Mario so much."
