[Blind Gossip] This celebrity couple was all set to quietly announce their divorce on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.
One of them put the brakes on just hours before the announcement.
They are not reconciling. They just decided that they didn’t want to “ruin” their entire summer!
They will now be looking to slip in the announcement just before another holiday weekend.
Not Ben Stiller And Christine Taylor (who DID announce their separation on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend).

[Optional] Were you surprised to hear that Stiller and Taylor were divorcing?
Couple: Josh Duhamel and Fergie
Yes, THIS is the divorce announcement we we told you was being stalled until the end of the summer!
Actor Josh Duhamel and singer Fergie have just announced that they are getting divorced after eight years of marriage.
Here is the official press release:
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.
Yes, that’s all. A quiet, dignified statement.
We knew months ago that the couple had separated… but they kept stalling on the darn announcement!
It was going to be at the beginning of the summer. Then they decided to wait.
They weren’t reconciling. Fergie decided at the last minute that it would be best if she could spend the summer concentrating on finishing her new album. She’s had a long career, but Double Duchess was going to be only her second studio album, and it was important to her.
They both agreed to have a quiet and peaceful summer with their son Axl, and to wait until Fergie finished her work.
Since she did finish the album over the summer, we were then expecting the announcement over Labor Day weekend. When that didn’t happen, we were genuinely puzzled.
It turns out that she decided to do some videos, too. She finished the videos for the album yesterday, so the divorce announcement came today, just in time for the end of summer!
The biggest clue we offered was featuring Ben Stiller in the original blind item.
Stiller famously starred in the movie Zoolander. Josh Duhamel got his start as a male model – even winning Male Model of the Year – and has frequently called himself a “real-life Zoolander.”
Nobody guessed this one correctly, probably because we were unable to figure out a way to work the word “Fergalicious” into the original item.
We wish Josh and Fergie a peaceful divorce.
And now… a double dose of Blue Steel!:
