Will.i.am Slams Reports that Fergie's Being Replaced in BEP
3:37PM Tuesday March 26, 2013
If you think that Fergie's pregnancy means she's out of the Black Eyed Peas, think again. Will.i.am has taken to Twitter to slam the rumors that the group was auditioning other singers to take Fergie's place.
"the rumors on @fergie being replaced are so false," wrote Will, adding that Perez Hilton and TMZ, who both reported the story, are "the furthest from the truth."
He then wrote, "#BEP4ever #fergieROCKS...#family," indicating that Fergie and the rest of the Peas are so close that they'd never dream of dissing her in that way.
The report stated that the group wanted to make new music, but didn't want to wait around for Fergie to deliver her little Pea, so they were temporarily trying to find another female singer to work with.
