A lot of fans are wondering why Josh Duhamel and Fergie decided to call it quits after being married for eight years. According to reports, sources revealed that all the reasons are pointing to the lifestyle of the former Black Eyed Peas’ female vocalist.

Allegedly, the 44-year-old actor was tired of his ex-wife’s “partying,” while they were still together, Page Six reported. In fact, the insider added that the “Transformer” star didn’t want to part ways with the 42-year-old hitmaker.

Fergie’s return to the spotlight

According to the friends close to the ex-couple, Josh Duhamel and Fergie tried their best to fight for their marriage.

As a matter of fact, they even underwent couples therapy.

However, their problem coincided with the “Big Girls Don’t Cry” singer’s recording of her new album,Double Duchess.” With that, she had been very focused doing recording stuff and returning as a rock star. “Josh felt like she was going back to her ‘old ways,’” a source told Page Six.

The songwriter is said to be a “notorious party animal” and even had drug problems when she was still young. To make things clear, there are no reports that she is using drugs again.

‘Double Duchess’ inspiration

As Fergie and Josh Duhamel have been separated since earlier this year, some are wondering if the actress’ new album is inspired by their split.

The LP includes songs titled “Love is Blind” and “Love is Pain.” “There’s a lot of my life, and my vulnerable side,” she told Page Six about her latest record after 11 years.

In a separate interview with Us Weekly, the “Fergalicious” hitmaker revealed that there are a “few emotional songs” added in “Double Dutchess.” She even admitted that she had shed tears in some of its videos. Aside from the two mentioned song titles, “Save it Till the Morning” is another emotional track that made her cry.

"It went deep," she confessed.

She went on to say that a number of her songs are from her autobiographical experiences. Its videos and visuals are also impressive and evidence of a lot of hard work. Her tunes are also inspired by her life, the things she was feeling, how she was making things happen, and living in the moment.

The split announcement

Just last week, Fergie and Josh Duhamel surprised everyone when they released a joint statement, announcing their split.

They revealed that they have been separated since earlier this year. They decided to share it with the public later to give their family the time to adjust. The couple got married in Malibu in January 2009. They share a four-year-old son named Axl Jack.
