Actor Josh Duhamel and singer Fergie announced their divorce roughly five months ago. However, the backlash from her recent disastrous national anthem performance at the NBA All Star game was so bad that her former hubby was caught bringing her some roses.
The film and TV star was spotted outside his ex-wife’s place on Monday along with their four-year-old son, Axl. The star opted for a dressed-down look in just a t-shirt and sweatpants, but it was his gift-bearing arms that held the biggest surprise.
The star arrived with a bouquet of roses, presumably for Fergie. It seems he’s hoping a combination of time with her son and flowers will help get her out of the post-anthem funk. As previously reported, Fergie appeared at the NBA All Star game on Sunday night, where she attempted to give a jazzy rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner.” While it was a bold choice, fans weren’t having it.
The star spent most of Monday being lambasted by people on Twitter as well as stars like Roseanne. That would be enough to make anyone in need of a little pick-me-up, but it didn’t stop there. Things got so bad that Fergie actually released an apology for her performance.
“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. I love this country and honestly tried my best,” the former Black Eyed Peas singer told TMZ.
As previously reported, Duhamel and Fergie announced they were divorcing in September 2017.
"With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year," the couple said in a joint statement at the time. "To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public."
Axl is the duo’s only child together.
