Fergie's been through a lot.
In addition to overcoming drug addiction, she and Josh Duhamel have weathered multiple cheating allegations during their nine-year relationship.
"It was difficult," she said on Oprah's Next Chapter, for an interview airing this Sunday on OWN, crediting the hard times for her union's present strength.
"When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely."
"We're stronger today definitely because of anything difficult that's happened with us. We deal with it, we communicate; communicating's the most important thing."
That's not exactly a denial of Josh cheating with Nicole Forrester, is it?
No. But Duhamel joined her on OWN to show how much he loves her.
"Obviously I love to watch her perform and I love all the music, and I was attracted to her initially because of... how sexy she was and the hotness," Duhamel said.
"But we haven't been together for nine years because of that. It's because she's, you know... we grew up in very similar ways, you know?"
"We've both had to work for what we got. We're both Catholic. There were a lot of things that were really compatible. But at the end of the day, she's just an amazing girl."
