Pharrell Williams reveals 'disappointment' over Will.i.Am's lawsuit against him

'Get Lucky' vocalist Pharrell Williams has issued a statement to Rolling Stone about the lawsuit filed against him by "fellow artist" Will.i.Am.

The Black Eyed Peas hitmaker has taken legal action against Williams over his "i am OTHER" brand because of its obvious similarity to his own "I Am" logo, and explained that the N*E*R*D star's "registration of the mark... is likely to dilute the I AM mark and the will.i.am mark."

Williams explained that he finds the whole case "ridiculous" as he's sure it could have been settled privately: "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."
