Some Very Sad News For Former Black Eyed Peas Star Fergie
After eight years of marriage, Fergie and Josh Duhamel are going their separate ways.
The couple released a statement to People magazine, saying “With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,”
“To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”
The couple, who have a 4-year-old son named Axl together, have continually been honest about the joys and challenges of parenting together.
“I have no idea what I’m doing half the time,” Duhamel previously told Ellen DeGeneres. “She’s definitely more evolved than I am, and more patient,” he said. “But I feel like I’m much more – you know, having a kid when I was 40 years old is much different than having one at 22, so I’m a little bit more mature than I was then.”
The couple has not been spotted in public together for a while, with the last shot of them snapped together in January, when they were celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary.
