American musical group Black Eyed Peas including of rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo has been ruling the hearts of music lovers for over 2 decades since their establishment in 1995. There’s no doubt that Black Eyed Peas is indeed one of the most leading and successful musical groups from the West. For a very long time, music lovers have been keen to know why their bandmate Fergie is no longer part of the group.
There have also been speculations that all is not well between her and the other members of the iconic band which led to her exit. However, Black Eyed Peas members will.i.am, apl.de.ap. and Taboo in their latest interview with billboard.com revealed the real reason why she is not working with them.
The trio stated that Fergie is still very much in touch with them, and the reason behind her not working them is because she is busy focusing on being a great mom to her 6-year-old son, Axl Jack Duhamel. Which otherwise wouldn’t be possible following all busy schedules and travel to various events and locations etc.
will.i.am said, “We love her, and she’s focusing on being a mom. That’s a hard job, and that’s what she really wants to do and we’re here for her… It’s really the way Fergie designed it, so we’re respecting her design. We love Fergie, and we don’t want anything but awesomeness for her.”
“But unfortunately, our schedule is displaced by [her] wanting to be a great mom, and she wants to focus on that. And like Will said, we support her 100%” added apl.de.ap.
Also talking about Black Eyed Peas’s new member J.Rey Soul, Taboo said, ” “I feel we’re giving birth to a new artist, J.Rey Soul. I really want to give her ultimate praise and respect. What the fellows said—Ferg, she’s doing the mom thing—but we have an amazing artist we’re developing.”
About Fergie, apart from her musical works with the Black Eyed Peas, the singer was also in news late last year following her divorce with Josh Duhamel. The duo began dating in 2004, and got married in 2009. It was in 2017 when Fergie and Josh announced their separation. It was in June last year they filed for divorce, and the divorce was finalized in November.
