Stacy Ferguson, who is better known as “Fergie” of the music group The Black Eyed Peas, opened up to Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” about her husband’s alleged fling with a stripper just nine months after they tied the knot.
Fergie said of the cheating headlines, “It was difficult. When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us, anyways.”
The singer didn’t deny to Oprah that her husband, Josh Duhamel, had cheated in 2009, but at the time Josh dismissed the cheating allegations at the time.
Duhamel reportedly cheated on Fergie with a stripper from Atlanta, which was confirmed by several media outlets along with sordid details of the affair.
Fergie didn’t confirm or deny to Oprah that Josh cheated, but said that they went to therapy as a couple and that those hard times made them stronger.
As for Josh, he said that he’s glad that incident happened because “it put me in check and made me realize what kind of man I wanted to be… As much anger as I carried about it before, I’m actually happy that it did happen. It made me straighten my ass out.”
Fergie said she is very happy in her marriage, adding that “The whole thing just became a positive for us … Our marriage today — I couldn’t ask for anything more.”
Fergie also opened up to Oprah about overcoming her crystal meth addiction. The singer said that through “discovering why I took the drugs in the first place” helped her get past her addiction.
She also describes her rock bottom, saying she was having paranoid hallucinations and had an awakening in a church where she told God she would quit doing drugs.
Josh and Fergie also spoke about being ready to start a family and have agreed to have two children. Fergie, who is now 37, better get busy getting busy!
