The Black Eyed Peas' front-man Will.i.am reportedly used his iPad to locate a suspect who robbed him earlier this month.
According to reports, Will's Apple gadget had a tracking device he used to help police.
It was too much for Will.i.am who found his possessions worth over $10,000 missing. Though he initially lost his cool and panicked over the loss, he didn't take much time to discover that his iPad had a built-in tracking system which would help him trace the locality of the robbers. As soon as he could locate the scumbag, he contacted the cops with the address and the cops followed the tracks. It didn't take much time for the police to reach the spot and they got most of Will.i.am's stuff. (Entertainment & Showbiz)
The singer was robbed for over $10,000 in valuables last week in California.
Will.i.am's ride got boom boom pow'd in the Hollywood Hills Monday night -- according to law enforcement sources, bad guys broke into the rapper's Bentley and jacked over $10,000 worth of stuff. TMZ has learned the Black Eyed Peas star made the shocking discovery himself and called the police to file a report. According to sources, the loot included jewelry and several of the singer's personal items. We're told cops are hot on the trail of the bad guys -- and some of the stolen property has already been recovered. (TMZ)
Aside from the robbery, recent reports suggested Black Eyed Peas member Fergie was planning on leaving the group.
Fergie can't stand Will.I.Am and that is one of the main reasons she wants to leave the band, a source close to them told RadarOnline.com exclusively. The other reason is she's decided she wants to have a baby! "Fergie is saying she wants out of the band and the second half of the tour isn't confirmed for early next year," the source said. "Things have gotten really bad with Will.i.Am. And it's not just Fergie who is clashing with him. So is the rest of the band. His ego is out of control." (Radar Online)
However, Will later went on Twitter to deny the rumors.
"Don't belive gossip about fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up) its all lies!!!," he wrote Saturday (June 26) morning. (Will.i.am's Twitter)
