Black Eyed Peas

There’s been speculation for months about the status of the Black Eyed Peas, regarding rumors of a possible group disbanding. Even Kanye West called for a eulogy for BEP at a performance in the UK in September, offering condolences — “Rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas. You’re gonna be missed,” he said.

The break-up is just hype though. At least, that’s what two members said recently.

TMZ cameras caught Fergie and Taboo at the LAX on Saturday (October 22) … and as they strolled through the airport, they were asked about the break-up.

“We’re going on hiatus. Yes, we’re taking a break. A break is not a break-up,” Fergie declared. Later, Taboo added: “We took a break before. But, we’re a family, don’t believe the hype.”

There you have it. No more rumors, the Peas will be back.
