The Black Eyed Peas aren't just on the back burner anymore, according to the group's DJ. he says the split is permanent.

In the wake of Fergie's announcement that she's planning a second solo album, DJ Poet tells Radar Online that you can forget about them getting back in the kitchen together. He says, "We always knew that The Black Eyed Peas would come to an end. There's definitely no bad blood. We are like family and always will be. In fact, Fergie just did tracks for my new song 'LA Bounce' and she killed it!"

Fergie spilled the beans about her solo plans on Chelsea Lately last week, but -- despite what she said on that show -- it does seem as if Will I Am will lend a hand on her new tunes.
