Yes, it is true!

Will.i.am has confirmed that The Black Eyed Peas and Fergie have gone their separate ways.
The split is due to ‘creative differences.’ An insider has revealed that ‘She wasn’t “kicked out.”

It has been rumoured that Fergie might be replaced by Nicole Scherzinger (formerly with The Pussycat Dolls), who has been seen chillin’ and singing with the Peas. “As for replacing, what people know The Black Eyed Peas to be, nobody is replacing Fergie,” will.i.am says. “She’s working on her solo project at the moment, we’re on this brand new experience, celebrating 20 years of Black Eyed Peas putting out music.”
Fergie joined BEP back in 2002, and helped them rise to fame with chart topping hits like, ‘Boom Boom Pow’, ‘I Gotta Feeling’, ‘My Humps’ and ‘Where Is The Love.’ Her last performance with the guys, was back in 2015 at Coachella.

Fergie has been on the music scene since then, releasing her solo singles like ‘M.I.L.F.$’ and ‘Life Goes On’. The Black Eyed Peas helped her work on her solo record, Will.i.am said, “We worked on a bunch of songs on her solo record, we’re proud that she has her label, but Black Eyed Peas are pushing it forward in terms of content, technology and experiences on our new project, Masters of the Sun.”

 

It was actually Fergie’ idea to leave the group, which left the guys unhappy. But they have since come around and are just looking forward to the future now.

 

The Fergie-free Black Eyed Peas will be performing at Ariana Grande’s Manchester benefit concert on Sunday (June 4), for the victims of the May 22nd terrorist attack. Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Coldplay will also be performing.
