Fergie and her husband Josh Duhamel were only married for nine months before allegations began circulating in 2009 that the actor had slept with an Atlanta stripper named Nicole Forrester. And although the 37-year-old singer remained quiet about the affair for years following, Fergie has now opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the alleged scandal.
Us Weekly reports that Duhamel, 39, publicly denied the cheating claims at the time, but Fergie admitted on an upcoming episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter that “it was difficult” to hear.
The Black Eyed Peas front woman went on to say that “difficult times…make you stronger as a unit, as a partnership.” She went on to clarify, “We’re stronger today definitely because of anything difficult that’s happened with us. We deal with it, we communicate; communicating’s the most important thing.”
According to the Daily Mail, Duhamel says the couple works because of their similar backgrounds. “My mother was a teacher. Both of her parents were teachers. We both had to work for what we got,” the actor said. “We’re both Catholic. There were a lot of tings that were really compatible between us. But at the end of the day, she’s just an amazing girl.”
