Singer Will.i.am of the hip hop band Black Eyed Peas has clarified that its lead singer Fergie is not quitting the group.
The "I Gotta Feeling" hitmakers have been plagued by claims they are on the verge of a split after announcing that they are set to take a hiatus following the completion of their recent world tour, reports express.co.uk.
The band's frontman Will.i.am has taken to Twitter to clear the rumours and has blamed US talk show host Wendy Williams for spreading the false information.
"@WendyWilliams: Hot Topics: @fergie is leaving The Black Eyed Peas. Find out who I think should replace her.' So not true... and so not cool," he posted.
