Pharrell Williams is being sued by the producer of his successful YouTube show, according to TMZ.
The producer of ARTST TLK alleges that Williams kicked him to the curb when he signed a deal to be a judge on season seven of NBC’s The Voice. Williams reportedly told the producer that The Voice made him an exclusive deal and he would be unable to do the YouTube show anymore. The singer allegedly wrote the producer: “Holding me to a contract that prohibits ‘The Voice’ exclusivity requirement? It’s ‘The Voice!'”
The producer claims he invested a million dollars into the YouTube show and wants Williams to pay. Williams’ rep told TMZ, “This is complete nonsense. It’s unfortunate when you try to help a friend and they wind up trying to take advantage of you.”
ARTST TLK scored a total of more than 1.7 million views during its 12-episode run. It featured interviews with big celebs like Spike Lee and Usher.
Pharrell makes his debut on The Voice September 22.
