Black Eyed Peas reportedly in a battle with business manager over big money

Local band turned music stars, the Black Eyed Peas, have been riding high on the charts with one hit after another since 2003. I love that 2004 jam, “Let’s Get It Started.” Fergie and the guys won their first of three Grammys in 2005 for that single in the best rap performance by a duo or a group category.

They’ve made millions as well. Now according to a story on Nikki Finke’s site, their business manager is being accused of mishandling their funds. Apparently, no one has been paying income or state taxes for the group. Bad news. Also, there’s some missing money, more than a million bucks. Details on Finke’s Hollywood.
