10:44 AM PT --
Crisis averted ... Will's rep JUST sent us an email saying, "Everything is fine, he has his car."

Will.i.am
believes someone JACKED his futuristic, ultra-customized super car while he was inside an L.A. nightclub last night ... and he's PISSED!!!!

It all went down when Will was in Bardot nightclub -- Will claims he left the car with the valet ... but when he went to retrieve the ride at the end of the night, nobody would give it back to him.

Will tried to explain the situation ... "I gave my car to the valet people ...and then I came out here and the valet is closed."

"Instead of flipping out, because I should flip out because the car cost several hundred thousand dollars ... I'm trying to stay calm."

Will eventually got in a waiting black SUV and left the scene ... but it doesn't seem like he ever got the car back ... 'cause a little while later he tweeted, "My car was stolen...what the f*ck."

He added, "I'm going to be optimistic and pray that my car is returned and safe."

We spoke to the LAPD who told us no stolen vehicle report was filed by Will.i.am and they never got a call to that area reporting a stolen car.

We called Will for comment, but no luck ... then again, he might not be awake yet.

Maybe the word "stole" means something different in his world, as in "repossessed."

Could it be because the car is still in impound for not being properly plated? Its a Delorean , Bill. You may have been drunk when thinking you gave the car to the valet.

That car looks like crap, made out of tin in someones garage, only an idiot like this guy would buy one. This guy is a tool who ruined halftime a few years ago at the SB. If anyone steals that car they should melt it down and sell for scrap tin and aluminum. Whats up with his craptastic hair? Grow up already, he's like a freaking 35 year old that still wears his hat backwards or with a flat brim.
Idiot...

Good riddance!    

Who made that car, Frigidaire? Check the pawn shops that specialize in kitchen appliances.

This guy is a hack whose ego far outweighs his talent. Maybe he should spend less time trying to overcompensate for his small p_ _ _s with a fancy car and more time honing his craft.

ABSOLUTELY NO SYMPATHY.

To own and drive such a vehicle is to beg for somebody to steal it. It's like "here's mine, where's yours?". Then to NOT file a report with LEO's tells me that he really has no interests in protecting his investment, but would rather have the insurance company pay off a claim and then start the process again of feeding the self-absorbed and very materially fed ego.

Unbelievable    

Sounds like his car was towed and not stolen probably for non-payment. Call you Financing company Will.I.AM
