Will.I.Am Denies Black Eyed Peas Split Rumours
Reports claim Fergie is close to leaving the group...
According to Radar Online, Fergie is on the verge of leaving BEP due to tensions within the group. The website quotes a source close to the singer as saying clashes with Will.i.am are to blame.
“Things have gotten really bad with Will.I.Am,” the insider said. “And it’s not just Fergie who is clashing with him. So is the rest of the band. His ego is out of control. Fergie just wants to get away from the whole thing.”
The report also states that Fergie, real name Stacy Ferguson, is yet to commit to a planned 2011 tour as she is keen to have a baby with her husband of 18 months, actor Josh Duhamel.
Will.I.Am refuted the report on his Twitter page: “Don't believe gossip about Fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up). It’s all lies!!!”
On a lighter note, the Black Eyed Peas smash I Got A Feeling is on course to be the first ever million-selling download in the UK.
