Sued for $2 Mil

Over Duds

EXCLUSIVE

will.i.am is being sued.

Will.i.am is being sued by a company claiming  he has bailed on a deal he made to hock a clothing line.

I.Am.Clothing (that's the company) claims will.i.am inked a deal in 2010, for the Black Eyed Pea's name to be used for marketing the threads.  The singer also agreed to help design and market the schmattas.

The company believes will.i.am was obligated to lend his name to the line through 2016, but the singer's position is that the deal is already over and out.

So the company wants more than $2 mil from will.  Hey, shirt happens.

TMZ, please hire an editor with at least a high school diploma. That, and Mr. Am's sunglasses are wack.

These guys think they can do whatever they want with no consequences, so true or false, let the lawsuit begin.

(And tmz, it's hawk, not hock ...your slackers really should have finished high school.)

I'm thinking that most people [I] don't know who he is. Furthermore, I'm looking at him and I'm thinking, "that dude looks weird. He looks like a homeless person, hardly a fashionista"

Schmattas is Polish used to mean rags but now-a-days its extremely derogatory. Google your quirky words because you make Will.I.am sound like a pimp.

Seems like this article was edited just as poorly as the new office promo. Schmattas? Wrong. LOL
