One of Hollywood’s most loved couples has decided to call it quits after 8 years of marriage, reports Page Six. Fans were shocked to learn of their split.
Josh Duhamel and Fergie are splitting after tieing the knot in 2009. The couple shares a 4-year-old son together.
“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” the couple said in a joint statement to People on Thursday. “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.”
Sources say it was coming for a long time and that the couple had previously grown distance. They also cited differences in lifestyles.
"They completely grew apart," one insider shares. "This was a long time coming and they've been trying to sort everything out this past year,” according to E! Online.
Another source says Fergie and Josh have "completely different lifestyles" that ultimately drove them apart. "They have always had very separate lives and not a lot in common... There wasn't a lot of overlap in priorities," the source explains.
