But will.i.am has spoken up to squash the rumor, calling it “all lies.”
Last week, chatter began that Fergie wanted to leave the band because of ongoing tensions with will.i.am., and her desire to have a baby.
A source told RadarOnline.com, “Fergie is saying she wants out of the band and the second half of the tour isn’t confirmed for early next year. Things have gotten really bad with Will.i.Am. 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.”
“And she really wants a baby with Josh,” the source added. “Between that and the bad blood with Will, it looks like the 2011 tour is in big trouble and she’s saying she’s going to split for good.”
But lucky for us fans, there’s apparently no truth to the rumor. will.i.am dismissed the reports - telling fans the Black Eyed Peas are "never breaking up".
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he wrote, "Don't believe gossip about Fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up) it's all lies!!!"
Phew! Their music is at an all-time high right now—we’d be devastated if they broke up!
