According to group leader Will.i.am, claims that Fergie is “on the verge” of quitting are total hokum.
Website RadarOnline fuelled the split talk with a report that claimed Fergie was on her way out because the “tension in the band has become intolerable for her.”
“Fergie can’t stand Will.I.Am,” added the site.
Will.i.am has now trashed the reports. He explained over Twitter:
“Don’t believe gossip about Fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up) it’s all lies!!!,” he tweeted.
No comment as yet from Fergie’s camp. We doubt they’ll bother to be honest.
