swirled that The Dutchess songstress was leaving the hip-hip group partly due to frustrations with bandmate Will.i.am, the frontman spoke out to Sirius XM’s Area Channel during the Electric Daisy Carnival in LA. “That’s fake!” he scoffed, adding that when he called Fergie after the faux-news broke, she jokingly called him an “idiot” for even discussing the gossip. “We ain’t going anywhere.
