As you might recall, Fergie’s rendition of the national Anthem didn’t go over well. Well no, her estranged husband Josh Duhamel is commenting. Speaking with Dan Patrick, Josh admitted he was "surprised' by her performance, but tells Patrick that he still feels bad about how others reacted.
“I’ve seen the girl sing it several times,” recalls Duhamel. “She crushes the song, so I was surprised to see that she tried what she did…I just felt bad for her, there’s an army of trolls out there that are just ready to pounce, and they are not nice. And for that I feel bad, but she’s a really tough girl.”
He goes on to say how he wishes he could’ve done more for Fergie at that time. “When somebody you care about is getting hammered like that, it’s not easy,” he explains. “I wanted to defend her too … but I was like, ‘I just got to stay out of this.’”
- The day after her performance, Duhamel and their son Axl showed up to Fergie’s house with a bouquet of flowers. “I didn’t know what else to do,” offers Duhamel. “I was like, ‘I just want you to know I got your back, girl. I’m with you. I’m on your side.’”
