Fergie from the Black Eyes Peas wants to legally change her name, her entire name and has already petitioned the court to do so. Fergie, real name Stacy Ann Ferguson filed legal papers requesting to officially change her name to Fergie Duhamel.
Fergie married actor Josh Duhamel about 4 and a half years ago – so why the sudden change of heart on the name? In the legal docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Fergie’s lawyer says she wants to change her name from Stacy for Fergie in order to “conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years.”
So, pretty much, no one has referred to Fergie as Stacy in YEARS, but in order for the court to grant her request, she must publish a notice in a local newspaper for four consecutive weeks. This is the same thing Ron Artest was required to do in order to become Metta World Peace. As long as she completes her task by August 16, there’s a hearing scheduled on the matter and she’ll be Fergie Duhamel for good!
