As RadarOnline.com readers know, Fergie, 42, and hubby of eight years Duhamel, 44, announced they had split earlier this year after eight years of marriage!
"With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year," they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE early this September. "We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family."
While the split came as a huge surprise to most, a video interview recently revealed Fergie had spoken out about her troubled relationship, days after sharing the news!
During a sit-down with The Breakfast Club radio crew, Fergie explained to talk show host Angela Yeethe meaning behind several of her newest songs. One of them is about "torturing yourself with a relationship you keep going back to," said the star, it's "something you can't leave or getaway from."
Noting that the "My Humps" star has been channeling her pain into song for the past year, former Black Eyed Peas band member DJ Poet told RadarOnline.com: "I was so sad to hear about my good friend Stacy's split with Josh. They are remarkable parents and are such good people. That being said, I know that they will both find positive ways to move forward. And she already has!"
He added: "It has been way too long since Fergie's talent for music and artistry has been heard and she's found comfort in her song writing and production."
Another source close to the singer claimed that her marriage may have been the reason she hasn't released a song in 11 years. "Many of her friends believe he was holding her back," added the source.
"She started working on the album a year ago and devoted herself day and night to her music. When it comes out her fans will definitely get some insight as to what went wrong with their marriage because she wrote all of the songs herself," the insider continued.
As RadarOnline.com previously revealed, the Duhamel and Fergie" tried to conceive" another child in 2015 after having Axl.
While they have always been known as one of Hollywood's most adored couples, they had a few rocky moments during the start of their marriage – the biggest being Duhamel's alleged affair with a stripper. "When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely," Fergie said at the time. "We're stronger today definitely because of anything difficult that's happened with us. We deal with it, we communicate; communicating's the most important thing."
