The 'Heartbreaker' singer says the hip hop group will never split up and will only take occasional breaks to work on other projects.

Will.i.am has claimed Black Eyed Peas will never break-up and that the four-piece group will be together "forever".

The 'I Gotta Feeling' singers confirmed in late 2011 that they are currently taking a hiatus to work on various other side projects, however Will.i.am has promised fans it is simply a break and not a break-up.

When asked by Access Hollywood Live! whether the band will stay together forever, Will.i.am replied:  "Yes, no doubt about it.

"I know there are probably going to be time lapses," the 'Heartbreaker' singer explained.

Earlier this week the 'Don't Stop The Party' singer revealed a desire to collaborate with actor Robert Downey Jr. on a musical project in the future.

William unveiled the music video for his new single 'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' last month ahead of the release of his fourth album '#willpower'  in February.
