Solange has split from her husband of 5 years, Alan Ferguson.
The singer announced the split, which happened many months ago, on Instagram, writing:
the past 2 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.
ive lived my best and worst moments in front of the lens and gaze of the world since i was a teenager. ive always tried to live in my truth no matter how ugly or full of love it is. ive also tried to carve out the space to protect my heart, and my life as it unfolds, evolves, and changes. 11 years ago i met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. early this year we separated and parted ways, (and tho it ain’t nan 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. it is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself. a nigga ain’t perfect, but im leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power i know exist within god and the universes grace. may all of your transitions no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!
Rumours of the break up of her marriage began flying around on Twitter about two days ago, so the younger Knowles sister had to address it.
Solange and video director Alan Ferguson got married in New Orleans in November 2014. Her sister Beyonce, Jay-Z, their mum Tina Lawson, her son from her first marriage Daniel Julez, and other members of her family were present at the wedding, which was an all-white affair.
