Josh Duhamel Slams Report Claiming He Is Trying to Break Up Fergie and Black Eyed Peas
Black Eyed bleep! That's what Josh Duhamel has to say about a new report alleging Fergie's husband has been "pushing hard" to create "a much cleaner and clearer break" between the singer and her Grammy-winning bandmates.
A source for RadarOnline said the Safe Haven star, 41, was being a supportive hubby by creating a rift between his wife and her fellow hitmakers: "She can re-invent herself as a solo artist without the looming specter of will.i.am influencing every creative decision she makes," the insider told the site.
But Axl Jack's angry pops slammed the allegations as false on his Facebook page Tuesday, Jan. 14. "Don't believe this bulls--t. Not true," he wrote, along with a hyperlink to the offending report.
New mom Fergie, 38, confirmed her plans for a solo album to Ryan Seacrest back in November. She added in the same interview that she was signed under Will.i.am's imprint for Interscope, I am Music. "I've been just in my little creative cave and the ideas come when they come and that’s the beauty of it," she explained of her music-making process. "It's so not forced so when I do come out with my album, I'm going to be really proud of it."
The reason for the delay, she added, was the birth of the couple's 4-month-old son in late August. "It was time for me to get a little break and have my kid," she told Seacrest.
The hunky Hollywood heartthrob, meanwhile, told omg! back in December that the plan was for baby Axl to become a big brother. "We've gotta move fast! [Axl's] a really good little baby, which means the second one will be a holy terror!" he joked.
Fergie and Duhamel married in January 2009 and most recently celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. "Thank you all for the well wishes," he tweeted last weekend. "Much love."
