    Singers Will.I.Am, Stacy 'Fergie' Ferguson, Taboo and apl.de.ap of The Black Eyed Peas perform onstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 23, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    The Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am clarified Friday that despite a recent report, Fergie is not out of the group.

    She has not commented.

    "Lies...@Fergie is focusing on #DoubleDutchess &@BEP is doing #MastersOfTheSun...That doesn't mean @fergie is out of the group #BEP4ever," he tweeted.

    The English-language UAE entertainment news magazine Ahlan! had reported Thursday that he, Taboo and apl.de.ap spoke to the outlet recently, that Fergie has left the band and that Will.i.am explained the "situation" by saying, "Since the beginning of Black Eyed Peas, we've always had amazing vocalists that appeared on the mic with us. People like Macy Gray, Esthero, Debi Nova, Fergie. On "Elephunk", there were several females that appeared on that album. Obviously, Fergie was the featured female, but on songs like "Let's Get it Started," it's Noelle [Scaggs], and then Fergie, songs like "Latin Girls," it's Debi Nova, and "Request Line," it's Macy Gray. We'll always work with good females."

    Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir are known for their style. But being on the road nearly a month for the Olympics means they need to bring a lot of clothing and accessories. We had the chance to take a look around the NBC Olympic analysts' hotel rooms to see just how much they brought with them.

    Will.i.am also told the outlet "nobody is replacing Fergie," who is "working on her solo project at the moment."

    The singer has not recorded new music with the Black Eyed Peas in more than five years, opting to concentrate on her solo career. She last performed with the group at the 2015 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

    The Black Eyed Peas are working on a new project without Fergie and are not expected to perform with her Sunday at the One Love Manchester concert, benefiting the families of the victims of last month's suicide bombing.
