Black Eyed Peas haven't split up, despite Kanye West's recent comments

Will.i.Am has addressed rumours that the Black Eyed Peas have split up for good after rapper Kanye West made a strange statement during one of his recent concerts. 

Following a performance of 'All Of The Lights' at the Austin City Limits event, West said to the audience, "rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas. You're gonna be missed."

This remark promted an onslaught of speculation as the 'Boom Boom Pow' stars recently announced details of a hiatus, but Will.i.Am has since taken to Twitter to reassure fans that the break is only temporary. He wrote:

"Maybe @kanyewest was stating the fact we will take a rest for a little bit...but we the @bep will never die...never...impossible."
