Fergie ‘didn’t want to divorce Josh’
Fergie was seen getting emotional on an episode of The Wendy Williams Show as she admitted to the host that she never wanted to split from husband Josh Duhamel.
The Black Eyed Peas star came close to sobbing as she told Williams that she thought she would be “together forever” with the actor, but things didn’t work out, The Sun reports.

The episode was made even more emotional when they started talking about the couple’s child, Axl, 4.
With the usually strong star melting at the sight of her son, she reportedly got upset and began blubbing on the set.
“I love Josh, he’s the father of my child,” she added. “We forever have that project together and we’re doing the best we can.”Jazz and pop singer Keely Smith dies at 89
Fergie and Duhamel shocked fans in mid-September when they announced that they had split up — and had been apart for months without anyone knowing.
In a statement released to People magazine, they said: “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 heartbreaking moment comes after Fergie put on a stiff upper lip and appeared OK with her current single status.Assault laws in focus amid Weinstein saga
Speaking to E! News in early October, she said: “I’m doing great. Things right now are just finally being released — a lot of things. And it feels really good to just exhale, release it all into the world with love and keep it moving.”
The singer previously admitted she still has “so much love” for Duhamel following their surprise split.

The star added: “We’re great friends, Josh and I, there’s so much love that we have for each other. We really like each other, we have fun with each other. We’re just not a romantic couple anymore. But we are still Axl’s parents through and through, and our families — each other’s families, the cousins, my nieces and nephews — it’s all the same. So that’s the only thing that’s changed.”
