The Black Eyed Peas star confesses he hasn't been lucky in love

TAGS:

Will.i.am has been close to Cheryl Cole since they worked on her solo album 3 words last year, but the Black Eyed Peas star reckons he’s not relationship material right now.

Will has just come out of an 8-year entanglement with a mystery woman from LA and is relieved.

‘It was destructive emotionally,’ he says. ‘I learned in counselling that me and my ex-girlfriend both have a fear of abandonment.’

Will.i.am loves women but girls often think of him as a pal rather than a potential lover.

I’m not a gold digger, I’m a boob digger. I like boobs,’ says Will, 35. ‘But I was always the homie, the friend, rather than the lover.

I’d have a crush on a girl and she’d say, “I don’t know Will, I see you as my brother.”‘

Will has been partying with Cheryl, 26, in Cannes and supporting her since her split with Ashley, but could intimate chats one day lead to love?

I’m a conversationalist. I just like to talk,’ Will tells The Sun. ‘Soon I want to settle down and have lots of girl babies, because I don’t want to add to the destruction of the planet.

‘It’s a man’s world and I think it’s gonna be a female that changes it all.’
