Soon after we found out Fergie is finally pregnant with her first child, it was reported that the sole female group member will be taking a break from her three-time Grammy-winning group, The Black Eyed Peas.

But perhaps the most shocking of all was an “exclusive report” by infamous celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who claimed the group was now “auditioning female leads” to “replace”her.

Perez previously alleged in his report:

“Since The Duchess has made it common knowledge that she plans to take the next few years to herself — for parenting and another solo album — the band agreed it was time to move on.”

He continues:

“It should definitely be noted that this is a temporary arrangement as Fergie will be welcomed back with open arms whenever she chooses to return.”

The blogger adds, reportedly all based on the revelations of an unnamed “source”:

“For the time being, however, the boys just simply cannot wait to make new music. They’ve gotta let their muses guide them, and they need/want a lucky new lady to fuse talents with.”

Well, Will.i.am is not going to let it pass.

The rapper addressed the matter on Thursday by tweeting:

“the rumors on @fergie being replaced are so false.”

The musician added:

“@PerezHilton & @TMZNEWSS_ is the furthest from the truth #BEP4ever #fergieROCKS…#family”
