Singer flies to Josh after claims he cheated with a stripper

FERGIE has jetted out to see her husband JOSH DUHAMEL amid claims he slept with a stripper.

The singer made the dash to see her actor hubby after exotic dancer Nicole Forrester claimed she had sex with the Transformers star.

And the couple made sure to be seen together, declining the offer of a discreet table at steak house Chops in favour of one "where the action is".

Fergie flew to Atlanta to spend time with her husband, who is shooting new movie Life As We Know It in the city, following the affair reports, which broke last week.

The couples aides have called the claims "ridiculous" and "nonsense", but Forrester insists she's not telling lies.

In a radio interview on Monday Forrester told Q100's Bert Show she met Duhamel at the Tattletale club in Atlanta, where she works.

She said, "We did hook up and had lots of sex and we had a really, really good time."

And her lawyer, Romin Alavi, tells Us Weekly magazine that it was the actor's alleged boasts about his tryst with Forrester that led the Enquirer to the stripper.

Alavi explains, "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."

Meanwhile, one source close to Duhamel and Fergie, who wed at the beginning of 2009, tells the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper the couple has had "a very intense and heated" talk about the claims Forrester has made.

The stripper claims to have text messages from Duhamel to prove her story. She also took a polygraph test to back up her claims.

Reports suggest she made more than $20,000 selling her story to the Enquirer.

But Duhamel's rep remains steadfast, insisting the story is all lies: "This is not the first nor will it be the last time that a stripper was paid a large amount of money to sell a false story about a celebrity. This story is absolutely ridiculous."
