Will.i.am has insisted that he has absolutely no plans to sue Pharrell Williams
Pharrell claimed recently that The Voice coach was instigating legal action against him and told Rolling Stone magazine that he was “disappointed” the ‘#willpower’ hitmaker was taking the serious and contentious court route.
It was reported that will.i.am was raising a lawsuit in relation to Williams”i am OTHER’ branding, with the Black Eyed Peas star apparently claiming that the symbol and logo was too close in design to to his “i.am+” iPhone camera add-on.

” i never was & i.am not suing @Pharrell but im doing #iamSCHOLARSHIP sending kids to college debt free. http://www.iamANGELfoundation.org ”
