True Love: still dead.
One of the longest-lasting marriages in the music world, Fergie and Josh Duhamel, announced on Thursday that they’re separating.
Bummer, right? They married in January 2009, but they’ve been together since 2004, and have a 4-year-old son named Axl.
Just last year, Josh shared the secret to their marital success with Entertainment Tonight, saying “You know, we still really really like each other. That’s important.”
But now it seems like maybe they like each other a little less.
The couple’s joint statement reads:
“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.”
