Fergie & Josh Duhamel Separate

I’m very disappointed to tell you Fergie and Josh Duhamel have separated after 8 years of marriage.

The singer and the Transformers actor released a joint statement to People saying they’ll “always be united.”

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 news of the separation comes a week before the release of Fergie’s second studio album, Double Dutchess.
