Fergie says pretending to be with Josh Duhamel was 'weird'

Leaving little to the imagination The 42-year-old Black Eyed Peas singer donned a racy bodysuit for her time on stage

The Dutchess herself tells PEOPLE going public about her split with Josh Duhamel was like a weight being lifted off her shoulders because she'd begun to feel awkward fielding questions about their relationship.

Though she and Josh Duhamel had held off announcing it, she stated: "There's no flawless time so we just chose to do it".

The Black Eyed Peas star, 42, and actor Duhamel, 44, announced last week that they had separated earlier this year after eight years of marriage.

As for the reason why the couple chose to split, a source reveals that it was actually a long time coming as Fergie, whose real name is Stacey Ann Ferguson, and Duhamel were complete opposites and lived different lifestyles.

During the last days of their marriage, "They were spending a lot of time separately with Axl". "We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family", they added. "We just grew. And we grew into realizing that we wanted the same things in life".

He told Insider: 'I don't get involved with her stuff and she doesn't get involved with mine and I think that helps because once you start intermixing profession and getting ideas and ... I've got plenty of people telling me about how my opinions are supposed to be.
