Will.I.Am Confirms Fergie is No Longer With The Black Eyed Peas

Just days after Fergie’s jazzed-up rendition of the national anthem went viral, Will.I.Am is confirming that the singer is no longer with The Black Eyed Peas.

In an interview with The Daily Star, the group’s lead rapper revealed that its fourth member has already withdrawn from the collective.
“We are now a trio. I don’t know why Fergie isn’t on the project. You will have to ask Fergie that,” he said.

“You know we are actually capable of doing it without Fergie.”

The “Let’s Get It Started” MC then hinted that former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger may be replacing the “Glamourous” songstress

“We have a chat group called Black Eyed Peas family. It has nothing to do with making music or money. It’s about friendship. It’s the three of us and Nicole. It’s about family. Nicole is Black Eyed Peas. She is family.”

 

Scherzinger was tapped to join the group before Fergie, but couldn’t because of prior commitments.
