**Will.i.am has confirmed rumors that Fergie has left the Black Eyed Peas.

Fergie, who joined the group as a lead vocalist in 2002 and helped it become one of the most famous pop and hip-hop bands in the world, has not commented. She has not recorded new music with the Black Eyed Peas in more than five years, opting to concentrate on her solo career, and last performed with the group at the 2015 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The rest of the Peas told Ahlan! magazine, “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,” will.i.am said. “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.”

**Kathy Griffin and her attorney will hold a press conference this morning at 9a pacific time in California, where they will, quote, “explain the true motivation behind the disturbing Trump photo she posted, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured.”

In addition to losing her gig at CNN and several of her standup shows have been canceled.

Jim Carrey seems to be the only person who has stepped up for Kathy, telling “Entertainment Tonight”, “I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times, because that line is not real.”
