Will.i.am Accused Of Stiffing Marketing Company Out Of Settlement Money

The Black Eyed Peas star is caught up in some legal drama over an unpaid settlement bill.

(AllHipHop News) will.i.am has been hit with a lawsuit by marketing executives for allegedly failing to pay them.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, executives at marketing company Crown and Conquer claim they were hired by the Black Eyed Peas star's company i.am+ in 2017 for "certain marketing and influencer services."

Staff at the company allegedly did the job required and were owed just over $158,000 for their work, but they were never paid. They allege i.am+ bosses eventually handed over $20,000 ($15,000) and they agreed upon a payment plan in which i.am+ would pay off the remaining sum across four monthly installments.

However, they claim will.i.am and his company "failed to make even the first payment," and are subsequently suing for the rest of the money they are owed, as well as 10 percent interest.

will.i.am, real name William Adams, founded i.am+ in 2013 with the mission of creating wearable products that combine fashion and technology.
