MIAMI, FL — Fergie may soon be on the Miami Dolphins' bandwagon as a limited partner.
At the NFLowners meeting in Boston, team owners Tuesday approved the Black Eyed Peas singer as a part owner, but the team has yet to complete an agreement with her, Dolphins chief executive officer Mike Dee said in an e-mail.
Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas already have a marketing partnership with the Dolphins. She wears a pink Dolphins jersey in a campaign this month for breast cancer awareness.
Team owner Stephen Ross has brought six other celebrities into the fold this year.The first partnership was with singer Jimmy Buffett. Musicians Gloria and Emilio Estefan and Marc Anthony and tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams subsequently bought small shares of the team.
All attended the Dolphins' home opener last month, and Anthony sang the national anthem Monday night, when the Dolphins won their second game in a row by beating the New York Jets 31-27.
Fergie, whose realname is Stacy Ann Ferguson, is a Grammy-winning singer and also an actress. Ross has said his celebrity partnerships stir excitement and reflect the vibrancy of South Florida, and he envisions the Dolphins as a glamour team.
