American pop star Fergie Duhamel and her husband actor Josh Duhamel announced last week they were separating after eight years of marriage.
The pair released a joint statement saying the split was amicable and that they “will always be united in our support of each other and our family” which includes four-year-old son, Axl.
Now, Fergie has told People her and Duhamel were planning on hiding their separation for longer, but that it was too difficult to pretend with both of them in the public eye.
“Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions,” the 42-year-old said. “We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird.
“There’s no perfect time, so we just decided to do it.”
