Fergie's Ex-Husband Josh Duhamel Defends Her Disastrous National Anthem Performance

Close

Even though Josh Duhamel and Fergie have given up on their marriage, that doesn't mean the two don't have nothing but good things to say about each other.

Fergie recently caught a lot of flack for her disastrous rendition of the national anthem, and while the rest of the world are still poking fun at the singer, her ex-husband is showing love and support.

Duhamel Still Supports Fergie

The Transformers actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the talk show host questioned him about how Fergie is holding up following her controversial performance.

"I think she would probably admit that it was not her best work, but the girl is crazy talented. She really is. She's an amazing woman, an amazing human being, really," Duhamel stated.

The actor continued that though it's hurtful to see Fergie get slammed by the media, the singer is "resilient" and insists she is doing "okay."

"It's hard to see somebody you care about get beat up like that. That's the business, you know? You're in this business. You put yourself out there. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose," he continued.

The former couple divorced in 2017 after eight years of marriage. The two began dating in 2004 and married in 2009. Their only son, Axl, was born in August 2013.

Since his divorce, Duhamel has been romantically linked to actress Olivia Munn. However, it has not been confirmed if the two are dating. 

Fergie's National Disaster

At the 2018 2018 NBA All-Star Game, Fergie performed a controversial rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner." The cover was received with widespread backlash with many people calling it "lazy", "bluesy" and "breathy."

The former Black Eyed Peas member acknowledged that the rendition did not go as planned.

"I've always been honored and proud to perform the National Anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I'm a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone," the singer stated to E! news.

The singer recently disclosed her battle with a crystal meth addiction that developed after leaving The Black Eyed Peas.
