Fergie Josh split

Pop singer Fergie has separated from her actor husband Josh Duhamel after eight years of marriage, WENN.com reports.

The superstars announced the sad news on Thursday, Sept. 14, revealing they separated months ago.

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” the estranged couple wrote in a statement to People.com. “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.”

Fergie and Josh share four-year-old son Axl.
