Everything We Think We Know About Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s Split So Far

Fergie and Josh Duhamel are one of the many celebrity couples who called it quits this year, and we’re slowly but surely getting some insight into what may have caused the split. The couple, who tied the knot in 2009 and welcomed their son, Axl, in 2013, announced their plans to separate in early September, leaving behind a trail of broken hearts and scratched heads. While details about the reason for their split are scarce, here’s everything that’s happened since Fergie and Josh broke the news to us.

On Sept. 14, the couple revealed their separation in a heartfelt statement to People. «With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,» it read. «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.»

A music insider told People that Fergie and Josh «have been leading separate lives for a long time,» adding that the singer «wants to be out on the road doing her thing, while he is more chill. They clashed for a long time before they did anything about it.»
  • Another source cited the couple’s differences as the reason for their split. «They come from totally different backgrounds and they wanted different thingsPeople reported. «A big factor is how different Fergie and Josh are. In the beginning, it was what attracted them to each other and made them so fun to be around.» The insider continued: «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.»

Fergie Breaks Her Silence on Josh Duhamel Split: «It Was Just Getting a Little Weird»

Fergie and Josh Duhamel announced their separation after eight years of marriage with a joint statement last week, and now the singer is breaking her silence on their split. In their statement, Fergie and Josh stated that they «decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,» and in a recent interview with People, Fergie revealed the reason she and Josh finally decided to go public with their breakup. «Honestly, it was just getting a little weird for us with all the romantic questions,» she said. «We’re great friends, we love each other so much, and it just got to the point where it was getting a little weird. There’s no perfect time so we just decided to do it . . . It was just getting a little weird to laugh through the first date questions.»

Fergie and Josh are parents to 4-year-old son Axl and are maintaining a united front for the sake of their family. «We just wanted to get adjusted in private. [And Axl’s school has helped as] we have a co-op so Josh and I would walk there several times before the school season,» Fergie explained. «So I get to learn from the teachers and see how he reacts in a group of friends that he knows. And I get to help out and serve them snacks and clean the dishes. We have fun, we get down and dirty, and read the stories with our costumes. You get down in the sand and get dirty — I love it. I love that part of it all.»

Fergie And Josh Duhamel Have Split After Eight Years Of Marriage

Premiere of Spaceman

I guess you could say she fergalicious def, fergalicious def, fergalicious def, def-def-def-definitely didn’t want to be married to Josh Duhamel anymore. Or you could say Fergie and Josh have called it quits. Whichever works best for you (for me, it involves singing “Fergalicious“).

People magazine says Fergie and Josh confirmed the news by releasing a joint statement earlier this afternoon. According to their statement, things haven’t been fergalicious in the Duhamel household for a while. Apparently they split up earlier this year.

“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.”

So basically, unlike Josh Duhamel being asked to turn off his phone on a plane or Fergie’s ability to control her bladder, their divorce might not get messy. Fergie and Josh’s family includes a four-year-old son named Axl.

This isn’t even Fergie’s first big breakup of the year; back in June it was revealed by will.i.am that she’s no longer a Black Eyed Pea.

There’s no word on what caused Fergie and Josh to split up, but E! News was quick to remind everyone of the many divorce (and cheating) rumors that followed them around through the years. So maybe Fergie was sick of inspecting Josh’s dick with a black light every time he returned home from “work.” Or maybe Josh just couldn’t take another phone call from Kim Kardashian asking if Fergie is there and can she please explain to her what MILF stands for again, because she forgot.

Here’s Fergie arriving at LAX last week without her wedding ring on:

Josh Duggar Is A (Strong Shudder) Dad Again

joshduggar

Ugh, Josh Duggar. The only creature on that beach so gross, the tide wouldn’t take it out.

Earlier this year, Josh Duggar and his apparently in-it-for-the-long-haul wife Anna Duggar announced they were expecting their fifth child, which they may or may not have made during a visit in sex rehab, because why wouldn’t that be something that happened?

UsWeekly says that Josh and Anna took to the family’s website yesterday to announce that on September 12, they became the parents of a baby boy. Josh and Anna are super-committed to the letter M. Their first four children are: Mackynzie (7), Michael (5), Marcus (4), and Meredith (2). Naturally I figured they would continue with the M theme and name their fifth child something like Maybeweshouldstophavingkids. But they went with something a little more normal.

“We are so thankful and happy to announce the arrival of our new son, Mason Garrett Duggar. Both he and Anna are doing well. He arrived today without complication and we already adore him. The entire family is ecstatic over the arrival of another beautiful blessing.”

I can’t believe I’m about to give a compliment to a Duggar, but I’ve got to hand it to them with that name. If you say Mason Garrett fast, it sort of sounds like Mrs. Garrett. And any name that reminds a person of The Facts of Life ain’t half bad.

They also posted a picture of Mason. Now, those could be normal baby tears. They could also be the result of Mason glancing at his parents and realizing he had been born into the Duggar clan.

Mason Garrett Duggar 💙 You are so loved already

They don’t make them like this girl.» Josh went on to call Kristen «an angel sent from above,» and we couldn’t agree more!

Josh Brolin Pissed Off James Cameron By Turning Down The Sequel To “Avatar”

joshbrolinesq

Things don’t sound too chummy between Josh Brolin and CGI-loving director James Cameron. Not that I ever assumed they were friends, but now I know they’re definitely not. Instead, things are awkward between them, and it’s all Avatar’s fault. I’m sure Avatar has caused many a fight between friends, family, and colleagues, but those were probably caused by arguments over how terrible that movie was. That’s not what Josh and James are salty about (well, not technically).

Josh recently sat down with Esquire to talk about his latest tough guy role in Only the Brave. Josh talks about going to AA and getting sober (which as many people familiar with Josh Brolin know, he needed that), and what Only the Brave is about. Eventually they got talking about a beef he has with James Cameron, because Josh is apparently an honest open book (“Ew gross” probably thought Robert Pattinson). It’s all because Josh turned down a role in one of the many sequels to Avatar. Josh wasn’t in the first one, and he sure as na’vi shit doesn’t want to be in the second.

Brolin not only tells me about turning down a role in the sequel to Avatar, he also has no problem admitting the decision caused tension between him and the director. “If I don’t want to do Avatar” he says, “I’m not going to do Avatar. James Cameron’s fucking calling me this name and that name. Whatever. If James Cameron came to me and said, ‘Hey, man, why’d you say that?’ I’d go, ‘Because it happened.’”

Oooh, such tough guy. Except maybe not? Shortly after Esquire hit publish on their interview, Josh hopped on Instagram to clarify what he said about James Cameron. According to Josh, his words were taken out of context (of course), he was joking, and he doesn’t even know James Cameron. Got it.

Josh didn’t get into specifics about what part James Cameron wanted him to play or when this conversation even happened (did it even happen?). All I really care about is what names James Cameron allegedly called him. Forget about the mental image of a CGI’d Josh Brolin sticking his blue alien tail into the butt of a dragon bird. I want to know – did James Cameron call him a fucking idiot, or was he more creative, like calling him a fucking perpetually-squinting sun-damaged idiot? These are the important questions.

Here’s Your First Look At Josh Brolin As Cable in «Deadpool 2»

Earlier this morning, Ryan Reynolds (who has come a long way from starring in the classic sitcom Two Guys, A Girl, And A Pizza Place, and also making us forget that he starred in an actual movie called R.I.P.D.) gave us all our very first look at Josh Brolin as Cable, who will be appearing in the upcoming film Fifty Shades Freed Deadpool 2.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Cable and have no idea who this character is, Wikipedia will explain it for you. And mind you, this is only just a small fraction of their explanation:

Cable (Nathan Summers) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with X-Force and the X-Men. The character first appeared as a newborn infant in Uncanny X-Men #201 (Jan. 1986) created by writer Chris Claremont, while Cable’s adult identity was created by writer Louise Simonson and artist/co-writer Rob Liefeld and first appeared in The New Mutants #87 (March 1990). Nathan Summers is the biological son of the X-Man Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone), the «half» brother of Rachel Summers and Nate Grey, and the genetic template of Stryfe. He is from a possible future timeline, having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present…Cable was born with telepathic and telekinetic abilities. However, the extent to which he has been able to utilize these powers has varied dramatically throughout his appearances. Originally, both were limited by his need to restrain his techno-organic infection, and his powers were negligible compared to his more traditional fighting skills…His techno-organic body parts possess enhanced strength and durability, and his techno-organic left eye gives him enhanced eyesight, allowing him to see farther than a normal human and in the infrared spectrum. He is also able to interface his techno-organic body parts with machinery, using them to hack into computers, open electronic locks, and travel through time.

Granted, I have been responding like this…

…ever since it was announced that Brolin would be playing Cable instead of Kyle Chandler or Stephen Lang, but…this works. Brolin looks great.

And now is the time where I and several others sit back, check our watches, and wait patiently for Deadpool fans/comic-book fans/people who call themselves Deadpool fans and comic-book fans but are really just bored Internet trolls looking for yet another excuse to behave like assholes with little to no home training to make their appearances on Twitter, message boards, and various comment sections to express many a variation of:

«Holy shit, Brolin looks sick as Cable.»

«Cable is supposed to be bulky and muscular. Why couldn’t they get Brolin to work out more?»

And the one particular train that I guarantee will not be late and will arrive on time:

«I don’t know why Josh Brolin looks the way Cable is supposed to look in the comics, but they couldn’t do that with Zazie Beetz as Domino

Followed by these complaints that will continue to be repeated since we first saw Zazie Beetz as Domino: «Ugh, she doesn’t look anything like Domino, she looks like John Candy in Spaceballs«

And also…»This is such bullshit. Mary Elizabeth Winstead would’ve been the perfect Domino! Why didn’t they just hire her instead?!»

«Why does she even have that hairstyle? That doesn’t function well in combat and it would be used against her by her opponent.»

Said by people who were quieter than ants pissing on cotton when it came to her…

black widow.jpg

and her…

gamora.jpg

and her…

anne-hathaway-catwoman.jpg

(If anything, Anne Hathaway-as-Catwoman got more complaints about her weaponized high heeled-boots, but unlike the complaints about Bryce Dallas Howard and her footwear in Jurassic World, those complaints didn’t last very long)

and her…

jessica jones.jpg

and her(?)…

maewhitman-arresteddevelopment.jpg

and also her (OK, bad example)…

medusa wig.gif

…who now have something to say about female comic-book characters and proper hair maintenance when kicking ass.

And my personal favorite complaint, which I saw on a message board sometime last week: «Why does Domino even have an Afro? Afros haven’t been popular since the Seventies.»

Tom-Hanks-orly.gif

Yeah. Really.

Yet another reminder to never read the comments.

Except for the comments here at Pajiba, of course. All of you* commenters are the best.

*And by «all of you,» I really mean «Five of you.»

Deadpool 2 (a.k.a. The Movie That Jodi Will Be Seeing In Theaters A Dozen Times, And She’s Going To Bring Chimichangas With Her To Eat Every Time She Sees It) opens in theaters June 1, 2018.

Open Post: Hosted By Ryan Reynolds And Josh Brolin Showing Off Their Nipples

composite_15020358873101

Deadpool 2 has started filming. Affable Canadian hardbody Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the chatty assassin with the hot bod and jacked-up face. Josh Brolin has joined the cast and is playing one of Deadpool’s frenemies, a cyborg mercenary from the future named Cable. Oh, don’t you love the convoluted comic book universe? Both of these dudes are currently in the gym working on their fitness. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Ryan’s personal trainer Don Saladino Instagrammed the guys’ nipples for our viewing pleasure.

Here’s Josh juxtaposed with the character he’s playing.

Fun fact – Rob Liefeld was a HUGELY popular artist for Marvel during the 90s comic book boom. He even appeared in a Spike Lee-directed Levis commercial! Ultimately, everyone figured out he couldn’t draw for shit. But by that time, he had created enough popular characters to keep getting paid.

And here’s a pic of Ryan that trainer Don Saladino posted…

I don’t know about you, but I need symmetry in my thirst traps. Where’s the other nipple, Don?

They’re Going To Ruin “Little Shop of Horrors” By Remaking It With Rebel Wilson And Josh Gad

screen-shot-2017-07-29-at-8-59-04-am-500x350

It kind of makes you wish Audrey II existed. Some well-meaning waiter could hide him near the bathrooms at whatever trendy restaurant childhood-slaughtering film executives are currently dining. That’s when they get devoured before pulling this shit! Warner Bros. is remaking Little Shop of Horrors, and ThatHashTagShow.com claims that they’re looking to cast Rebel Wilson and Josh Gad. Brace yourself for Gremlins 2019 with Ariana Grande and some breakout YouTube fool.

The film is still in development, and there’s no release date set, but Olaf and Fat Amy are reportedly very interested. Both of them can sing, which is good, because they’re keeping it a musical. Thank heavens for small favors!

The 1986 version of the stage musical starred Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene and was an iconic cable TV flick for many years. Whenever profound emotion requires expression, I always call upon my impression of feeling-the-pathos-fully Ellen belting out “Suddenly Seeeeeyyyyymmmmoouuurrrrr!!!!!” with that big honking voice of hers. Who knew SONGS could be overacted and chew scenery? When the self-checkout at CVS ALWAYS calls for an associate to help you, you have to express your frustration somehow.

What irks me about the unending reboot craze, is when they throw the previous version a bone by having the original cast show up in some way in the new one. When released, if the trailer does give us a brief shot (Yes, the trailer. I wouldn’t see this movie even if you offered me Tom Hardy on toast.) of Rick and Ellen as harmonizing homeless people, I’m going to file a lawsuit.

Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll go with the original ending.
