Josh Duhamel and Stacy Ann Ferguson, better known by her stage name, Fergie, met over 12 years ago and were married for eight years It’s always impressive when two superstars are able to come together and stay together, especially when are both so heavily involved in the entertainment industry, and despite some serious trouble early in their marriage, the two worked hard on their relationship before calling it quits. Just as it seemed the two were really going to make it — they split! Here are 9 things you didn’t know about their relationship:

9. How They Met

Fergie and Josh met on the set of his former show, Las Vegas back in 2004 when Fergie’s former band, The Black Eyed Peas, made a guest appearance to perform. While on the Anderson Cooper show, Duhamel said that he first heard of his future wife while at a BBQ. Molly Sim’s boyfriend at the time showed him the music video for the song “Hey Mama” and said, “This girl shakes it like she wants a career.” From that moment on Duhamel was smitten. He went to work the next day and convinced producers to invite the band onto their show. Sure enough, the following year, The Black Eyed Peas were musical guests on Las Vegas. Duhamel also said that his first two words to her were, “You’re hot,” and that’s how their relationship started!

8. Two Week Rule

Like many other Hollywood relationships, one of the biggest roadblocks they faced was time spent together. Josh is a successful actor who is constantly needed on set or on location, while Fergie is a singer who is on tour performing in different cities every night. In order to better manage this aspect of their relationship they had a strict two week rule. “We have a rule. We don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other. If she is on tour, I will meet up with her, or if I am on a movie, she will come out to where I am filming. Like now, I am shooting in North Carolina, and she is staying with me for a week or two. When we were first together, we didn’t realize it is too difficult to go more than two weeks without being together. We want to stay tight. That is our number-one priority,” said Josh.
