Will.i.am may be a super successful international superstar but when it comes to his personal life, some might wonder “where is the love?” The talented producer, musician, and member of the Black Eyed Peas does keep busy, though, appearing on the U.K.’s version of The Voice and The Voice Kids when he’s not creating music. Considering his busy schedule, it makes sense that he told The Mirror: “I don’t have time for girlfriends, and that’s why I just keep busy. I keep going because that’s what I want to do.”
According to The Sun, Will.i.am did once reveal that an eight-year relationship with an ex-girlfriend inspired the Black Eyed Pea’s hit song “Don’t Lie.” It’s unclear if it’s the same ex who is also believed to have inspired “Ordinary People,” a song he co-wrote with John Legend. Will.i.am seemingly opened up to The Mirror about the long-term relationship, revealing, “Back in 1998, I said to my ex girlfriend, ‘I’m just going on tour for a couple of months.’ And I never came back. We were together for nine years — and we had to break up over the phone.”
But just because Will.i.am’s a busy man who hasn’t revealed who that ex is, that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been linked to a few other stars over the years. Let’s break it down.
Will.i.am is single, but has been linked to other celebrities
Back in 2008, Will.i.am was linked to “Torn” singer Natalie Imbruglia after the twosome was spotted out and about looking mighty cozy in London, per Express. However, it was Will.i.am’s close friendship with British superstar Cheryl that sparked major romance rumors after they collaborated on the song “Heartbreaker” in 2010. He even reportedly worked as her manager for a while, according to The Sun.
That being said, it seems that even their friendship has fizzled out. When asked about her, he told The Sun, “we’re gravitating to new things. Of course we’re still friends. I don’t know where she hangs out – she doesn’t hang out so much any more.” After that, the TV star was rumored to have dated UK reality star Casey Batchelor but that relationship appeared to only have lasted a few months.
Will.i.am may be married to his work for now, but who knows what the future will bring for this hitmaker.
