The newly-single Fergie has been the subject of plastic surgery rumors for years. And while the 42-year-old has never admitted to getting work done, there’s no denying that she’s undergone a shocking transformation since making her music debut in the ’90s. Regardless, though, we think she looks great!
Back in 2011, The Daily Mail reported that the former Black Eyed Peas band mate underwent a Croydon facelift — which according to the Collins Dictionary, is defined as “the tightening effect on the skin of a woman’s face caused by securing the hair at the back of the head in a tight ponytail.” The mother-of-one has also addressed rumors she went under the knife during an interview with Allure.

“I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side — it was the first time — and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane,” she told the publication.
On Thursday, Fergie and her husband of eight years, Josh Duhamel, announced they would split. The two share a four-year-old son together named Axl Jack. “With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year. 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,” they said in a statement.
The news came as a shock, as a source exclusively told Life & Style back in January that the couple was trying for a baby before going their separate ways. “They’ve been talking about trying for a second baby. Fergie’s face lights up whenever she talks about what a good father Josh is,” the insider revealed. “Although he loves having Axl, Josh has always wanted a girl. [Fergie] would love a little mini-me.”
