will.i.am sues Pharrell

WENN

will.i.am's feud with Pharrell Williams has become a full-on legal spat -- the Black Eyed Peas star has filed a lawsuit against his fellow hitmaker/producer.

will.i.am previously fired off a cease and desist letter, demanding that Pharrell drop the "I AM" from his I AM OTHER YouTube site, prompting Pharrell to ask a judge to protect his right to use the moniker.

Bing: Pharell had a falling out with Madonna

And now will.i.am is countersuing his fellow hitmaker/producer, claiming he has a long, copycat history, noting Pharrell is being sued by Marvin Gaye's family for allegedly ripping off "Got to Give it Up" for his summer anthem "Blurred Lines," according to TMZ.

will.i.am claims out Pharrell's I AM OTHER will confuse people because both stars are on the same record label and they have similar musical styles.

He's a nice dude with some nice dreams.  See his ice cubes?  See his Ice Creams?  Eligible bachelor, million dollar boat that's whiter than what's spilling down your throat.  The Phantom, exterior like fish eggs.  The interior looks like suicide wrist red...Pharrell is infinitely more talented than ole Pea licker.  However, he did bring us Fergie.  So he ain't all bad.

will.i.am is a fraud and worst thing to ever happen to music. he has the audacity to try and accuse pharelle of stealng when you can google will.i.am and find NUMEROUS lawsuits against him for the past 7 years of him doing nothing but stealing beats and music for his own productions. many of fergies solo songs contained stolen tracks from the 1980s and he was sued for copyright infringement. He has way too big of ego, all his recent music sounds exactly alike especially his new found urge for EDM music. The scream and shout song with britney was originally recorded by an unknown british female artist and of course he came in remade it and added britney without giving credit to the original song writing and producing. He is a hack and will never be nearly as talented as pharelle.

Talentless Turds.  Anyone who likes either of their music has zero taste.
