Josh Duhamel and Fergie are calling it quits after 8 years of marriage. They made the shocking announcement in a joint statement to People magazine:
“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.”
They decided to keep it from the public so that they could determine what was best for their four-year old son, Axle. But now that Fergie’s in the middle of a press tour in support of the Sept. 22 release of Double Dutchess, her first new solo album in 11 years, perhaps it was time to face the music.
So why did they decide to split? The most recent rumor they faced had to do with expanding the family.
