Solange Knowles and husband Alan Ferguson split after 5 years of marriage
"11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. Early this year we separated and parted ways," she wrote on Instagram
Solange Knowles and her husband Alan Ferguson have split. The 33-year-old American singer, who is the younger sister of Beyoncé, took to Instagram on Friday, November 1, to announce the separation.
She wrote, “The past two years have brought me more physical and spiritual transition and evolution than ever before. My body left me with no choice but to listen and be still. Within that stillness, I begin my journey in confronting my worst enemy, fear."
"I’ve lived my best and worst moments in front of the lens and gaze of the world since I was a teenager. I’ve always tried to live in my truth no matter how ugly or full of love it is. I’ve also tried to carve out the space to protect my heart, and my life as it unfolds, evolves, and changes," she added.
"11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. Early this year we separated and parted ways, (and though it ain't nan [sic] no body business), I find it necessary to protect the sacredness of my personal truth and to live in it fully just as I have before and will continue to do," the singer wrote.
"It is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself," she continued. "Ain't perfect, but I’m leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power I know exist within god and the universe's grace."
She concluded her post with, "May all of your transitions no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!" Solange and Ferguson were married for five years. They tied the knot in New Orleans in November 2014, in the presence of close to 100 of their loved ones, including Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z.
