The celebrity couple just went public with their decision to separate earlier this year, and as multiple sources reveal to E! News, it’s possible this split was in the making for quite a while.
“They completely grew apart,” one insider shares. “This was a long time coming and they’ve been trying to sort everything out this past year.”
Another source says it came down to Fergie and Josh’s “completely different lifestyles” that ultimately drove them apart. “They have always had very separate lives and not a lot in common… There wasn’t a lot of overlap in priorities,” the source explains.
For example, our sources say the Transformers star is less concerned with living out his life in the public eye, while the pop star is concentrated heavily on her career.
“Josh is very down to earth and a do-it-yourself kind of guy,” one source adds. “He’s out early in the morning every day doing normal things like going to the hardware store or taking [their 4-year-old son] Axl to breakfast. Fergie’s in a totally different world.”
A second source tells E! News, “Fergie is focused on her tour, new music and, of course, her son.”
So with such stark personality differences, what made the pair work so well when they first started dating 13 years ago? Our first source explains, “He was so enamored with her in the beginning that he overlooked things like lifestyle and commonalities.”
“It caught up with them,” they continue. “It just became very clear that they are not on the same page and don’t see things the same way.”
Fortunately, we’re told Fergie and Duhamel leave their marriage behind with nothing but mutual admiration and a desire to successfully co-parent.
One insider remarks, “There wasn’t one big fight or final straw. They have a lot of love for each other and for each other’s families and there’s no bad blood.” The separate insider echoes a similar sentiment: “Fergie still has the most respect for Josh and they will continue to have a healthy relationship while co-parenting.”
Fergie’s rep released the following statement to E! News earlier today: “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.

Love conquers all when it comes to Ozzy and Sharon.
The 68-year-old “Prince of Darkness” rocker and the 64-year-old co-host of The Talk, who have been married for 34 years and share three children, broke up briefly in 2016 after Sharon discovered Ozzy had cheated on her. They reconciled and even renewed their vows this year.
When asked what is his and Sharon’s secret to a good relationship, Ozzy told Rolling Stone in an interview published Thursday, “Don’t get caught with your mistress [laughs].”
“It’s a rock & roll thing—you rock and you roll,” he continued. “You take the good with the bad. When I was a crazy f–ker, I’m lucky she didn’t walk out. Now I’m coming on five years clean and sober, and I’ve realized what a f–king idiot I was. I mean, I’m still nuts, but in control of it a bit more…When I said, ‘Don’t get caught by your missus,’ I’m not proud of all that s–t. I upset my wife and I upset my family and I made a lot of shock and shame. I love my wife, and it made me realize what a f–king idiot I’ve been.”

When asked what has kept him and Sharon together, Ozzy said, “I suppose it’s fair to say we love each other.”
“I love her, and she loves me,” he said. “There’s no other woman I really want to spend the rest of my life with. You make a mistake and you learn by it. She’s made a few mistakes, and so have I. You know when you hear these people go, “Oh, we’ve been married 35 years and we’ve never had a row.” I go, “You must have been living in a different f–king country.” Sometimes, I’ve looked at my wife and I’ve just been angry as f–k, and vice versa. Other times, I go, “F–k, I love you.”
E! News learned in May 2016 that Ozzy and Sharon had split. It was was revealed Ozzy had cheated on Sharon with his hair colorist for four years. Ozzy later said the pair’s relationship was “back on track.”
Ozzy’s rep then said the singer has been “dealing with a sex addiction” over the past six years, adding that “he would like to apologize to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with” and “gone into intense therapy” and “is mortified at what his behavior has done to his family.”
This past January, Ozzy told The London Times that he does not think he is a sex addict, adding, “I’m in a f–king rock band, aren’t I? There have always been groupies. I just got caught, didn’t I?” He also called the breakup a “bump in the road.”
“Some Russian teenager, then a masseuse in England, our masseuse [in the U.S.], and then our cook,” Osbourne said. “He had women in different countries. Basically, if you’re a woman giving Ozzy either a back rub or a trolley of food, God help you.”
She also said Ozzy has been in treatment for sex addiction for the past year and is “doing so well.”
