It's over for Fergie and Josh Duhamel.

The two, parents to 4-year-old son Axl, have called it quits after eight years of marriage.

"With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year," the two said in a statement relayed by Fergie's rep Thursday. "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."

Josh has not commented.

Like many celebrity couples, he and Fergie have often been the target of breakup rumors. The two have not been photographed together in public since June.

Over the past few months, they have supported each other in the press and online. 

At the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in May, Josh casually talked to E! News about his and Fergie's date nights.
