Fergie is being told to ditch will.i.am

It looks like music producer will.i.am might be getting kicked to the curb!

Rumour has it that Fergie’s husband Josh Duhamel is pushing hard on getting Fergie away from her long time music partner will.i.am.

Even though the ‘Where is the Love?’ stars started off together, it seems like they won’t be working together for much longer.

The 38-year-old singer’s hubby Josh Duhamel is apparently trying to ‘drive a more permanent wedge between her and will.’

An inside source says that Fergie is having confidence issues and actor Josh Duhamel plans to be her knight in shining armour and help her re-establish herself.

A reliable source revealed that ‘Josh is pushing hard for Fergie to make a much cleaner and clearer break from The Black Eyed Peas so she can re-invent herself as a solo artist without the looming spectre of will.i.am influencing every creative decision she makes.’

Maybe this cute hubby was starting to feel a bit like the third wheel.
