Fergie was on Oprah the other day, and one of the questions she was asked was about the Josh Duhamel cheating rumors that were all over the internet a couple of years ago. Oprah asks Fergie, “Nine months into your marriage, rumors began to swirl about him [Duhamel] being with a stripper. How was that for your marriage?” Fergie replies that ‘it was difficult’, and doesn’t elaborate further on the truthfulness of the rumors.
Oprah then follows up with, “Did that bring you closer together? Did it help you reevaluate your marriage?” and Fergie answers, “Definitely. When you go through difficult times it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us anyway. Our love today is a deeper love.”
It seems that Fergie seems to have accepted that there was a high probability that Duhamel in fact did cheat with a stripped but probably forgave him afterwards. The video is more telling than the transcript, but since the duo had a vow renewal ceremony a couple of months later that coincided with their anniversary, they seemed to have put it behind them for now. Let’s hope for both of their sakes that no more rumors come out regarding Duhamel’s sexual encounters with any more strippers.
