Will.i.am denies he is suing Pharrell Williams

DISPUTE: Will.i.am, left, and Pharrell Williams

FORMER BLACK Eye Peas member Will.i.am has confirmed on Twitter that he is not suing Pharrell Williams over a trademark dispute.

Earlier this week The N.E.R.D. singer and producer said he was “surprised” he was being sued by the judge on television show The Voice judge over his new creative brand i am OTHER.

However, earlier today Will.i.am told his more than eight million followers: “ i.am not suing @Pharrell & I NEVER WAS.. What i.am doing is... #iamSCHOLARSHIP sending kids to school debt free".

He added: “what i.am doing is #iamHOME helping families keep their homes".

Reports first suggested court documents had been filed by Will.i.am saying he owned the trademark to I AM and that the two brands were “confusingly similar”.

On response to the initial suing allegations, Pharrell said in a statement: “I AM disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me.

“I AM someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions.

“I AM surprised in how this is being handled and I AM confident that Will's trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do.”

However Will.i.am’s tweets today confirm he is not suing, putting to bed the claims.
