Fergie and her husband Josh Duhamel sit down with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter this Sunday night, and in one segment, Fergie opens up to Oprah about how she handled something that happened nine months into their marriage: rumors that Josh had cheated on her with a stripper.
"It was difficult," admits Fergie in an advance clip of the interview , but adds that ultimately, it helped bring her and Josh closer together.
"When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership," says the singer. "It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely."
Fergie goes on to say that she and Josh are "stronger today definitely because of anything difficult that's happened with us." What's their secret? "We deal with it, we communicate," she explains. "Communicating's the most important thing."
Oprah then asks Fergie if she and Josh ever considered breaking up during that initial rough period. What's her answer? You'll have to tune in this Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET to the OWN network in order to check out the entire interview.
