Will.i.am confirmed rumors that Fergie left the Black Eyed Peas.
Entertainment news magazine Ahlan! first reported Fergie's exit after speaking to BEP members will.i.am, Taboo and apl.de.ap.
Fergie, who joined the group as lead vocalist in 2002, has not yet commented.
"As for replacing, what people know The Black Eyed Peas to be, nobody is replacing Fergie," said will.i.am during Ahlan!'s interview. "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. 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."
