“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 couple are parents to their 4 year old son Axl.

The Black Eyed Peas singer first met Josh when her band appeared on his TV show Las Vegas in 2004.
