Rumors are swirling that Fergie has officially left the Black Eyed Peas. Wikipedia has listed her as a “past member” of the band on the Black Eyed Peas Page, and on the Fergie page cites her as a member of the band from 2002-2017.
If this news is true, it isn’t completely shocking. Lead singer Fergie has been doing her own thing for a while now (Glamourous, M.I.L.F $ etc)
Some rumors indicate that Fergie was kicked out of the band. Hollywood Life reports that she left due to “creative differences.”
Word on the street is that she is being replaced by former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger, who has been spotted hanging out with the other members of BEP.
These rumors come only days after Fergie announced she is leaving Interscope Records to begin working on her second album (Double Dutchess) under the direction of her own label, BMG.

BEP member Taboo Nawasha tweeted this only a few short hours later, throwing some obvious shade her way

Despite her 15 years in the band I guess she isn’t a “classic member”? Not completely invalid as they did form 7 years before she joined. But still…that’s SHADE.
Also notable is the fact that all of the pictures the band has posted on their Twitter feed since that announcement has SANS FERGIE!
