Fergie and Josh Duhamel Are Splitting After 8 Years of Marriage

Because it's 2017 and the world is crumbling.

Hi, hello, here is some sad news to continue on the "Love Is Dead" train that is 2017. After 8 years of marriage, Fergie and Josh Duhamel are splitting.

"With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year," the couple said in a joint statement to People. "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."

The pair have a 4-year-old son Axl and celebrated their wedding anniversary in January.

Welp. Okay. Is it 2018 yet?
