The rumors started after reports popped up stating that Fergie left Black Eyed Peas. With her rumored departure and Black Eyed Peas' impending comeback in August, many fans became curious to who would be filling in the vocalist position.
Former 2NE1 member CL, who has collaborated with will.i.am and maintained a close friendship ever since was named as the top candidate.
These rumors also spread across Korea through an article by TV Report on July 10, which talked about the possibility of CL joining Black Eyed Peas.
YG Entertainment has not spoken up about the rumors.
Meanwhile, will.i.am denied Fergie's departure from Black Eyed Peas. He tweeted, "Lies... Fergie is focusing on #DoubleDutchess & @BEP is doing #MastersOfTheSun... That doesn't mean Fergie is out of the group #BEP4ever"
