The Voice UK coach has since tweeted confirmation that he is not suing Williams and never had any plans to: “i.am not suing @Pharrell and I never was...”
Rumours of the lawsuit arose when Will allegedly accused the N.E.R.D star's i am OTHER range as being "confusingly similar" to his i.am+ camera add-on for the iPhone - which launched last year.
Williams was quoted as saying that he was "disappointed" over the lawsuit reports, stating that he would have liked to have spoken to Will before the story became public knowledge.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, he said: "I am disappointed that will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me."
He continued: "I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions."
Pharrell is yet to respond to Will's tweets.
