Will.i.am rebuts accusations of song theft

In this April 24, 2013 photo, will.i.am poses for a portrait in Los Angeles. Will.i.am says he's been unfairly accused of stealing a song from a Russian dance producer. The producer-rapper-singer has acknowledged reaching out to trance producer Arty after hearing his 2011 song with London's Mat Zo, "Rebound." Will.i.am recorded a new version with Chris Brown titled "Let's Go." Will.i.am credits Arty as a writer on the song in the liner notes for his album, "#willpower," released this week. He blamed the slow legal clearance process his legal team was also at work on the issue. (Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP)
