Following nearly a decade of marriage, singer Fergie and her husband Josh Duhamel are calling it quits.
Speaking with People magazine exclusively, the couple said in a joint statement:
“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.”

We wish everyone involved the best of luck.
