Fergie isn’t going to let divorce get her down.
The singer looked to be in good spirits Friday when she greeted fans outside the Copacabana Palace Hotel in Brazil ahead of her Rock in Rio performance. Clad in an embellished top and ripped jeans, the 42-year-old was all smiles as she posed for photos and signed autographs.
A source told Celebuzz the Black Eyed Peas alum has been “doing well” despite recently splitting from her husband of eight years, Josh Duhamel.
“She’s fine. She’s doing well,” the insider dished. “She’s focusing on work and getting her new music out right now.”
Fergie and Josh, 44, announced their separation earlier this week, saying in a joint statement, “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.”
While they might not be together, the former couple are adamant on being good parents to their only child, Axl. They are currently splitting time co-parenting the 4-year-old.
Since the split, Josh was spotted without his wedding ring as he dropped off his son at a friend’s house for a play date.
“They are obsessed with Axl,” our source said. “Despite their differences, their son has always been their top priority. They love being parents.”
According to People, the pair ultimately ended their marriage because ” they come from totally different backgrounds and they wanted different things.” An informant close to Fergie told the publication “Josh is low-key and laid back. Fergie is more high maintenance and very focused on her career. He definitely wants more kids and has always wanted to be a family man.”
