Just when we thought this story had been written off as a rumor, it’s come back to haunt us. Last week, a stripper from Atlanta named Nicole Forrester came forward, saying she had slept with Josh Duhamel after meeting him at the strip club where she works.
She claimed they’d exchanged numbers, and she’s gone to his hotel room. Josh’s rep was quick to deny the rumor, calling it “ridiculous.” But today, the story has further unraveled.
According to Radaronline, Forrester took a lie detector test with polygraph expert Kenneth E. Blackstone, who claims she’s telling the truth about having sex with Duahamel.
Blackstone tells Radar, "In my 30 year career I have conducted between 15,000 and 20,000 polygraph examinations. The polygraph examination showed Nicole Forrester was being non-deceptive, telling the truth when she answered my questions. One of those questions was had she had sex with Josh Duhamel. And she answered yes."
And on top of that, Nicole’s lawyer Romin Alivi tells Us Weekly Josh was even talking about the fling on the set of his movie Life As We Know It, which is shooting in Atlanta.
He says, "Josh bragged about what happened on the set of his movie, and someone called the Enquirer with the tip. The Enquirer then came to Nicole."
And now several other women across the country have also come forward, claiming to have had sex with the actor. During San Francisco's JV on Wild 94.9 radio show on Oct. 30, a woman named Serena called in to say that while the then-engaged actor was filming the Transformers sequel at a New Mexico Air Force base in 2008, he slept with her best friend who was stationed there.
"She also said she knew two other people whom he hooked up with," the program's producer, Jon Manuel, tells Us Weekly.
But Fergie is trying to stay positive throughout all of this. A friend of hers tells the mag, "Fergie says nothing is wrong. Every time I ask her how married life is, she says, 'Awesome!' Josh told her it didn't happen, and she believes him."
Taboo, Fergie’s Black Eyed Peas bandmate doesn’t believe it either. He says, "We know the story is bulls—t. When you're as famous as Fergie and Josh, people are going to say stuff."
We don’t know what to believe, but we’re hoping none of it’s true! Tell us what you think about the stripper scandal below!
