Solange Knowles, American singer, has announced her separation from Alan Ferguson, her husband, after five years of marriage.
The songster — who is the younger sister of Beyoncé — took to her social media page on Friday to break the news after months of speculations.
According to her, they have been separated for months.
Ferguson is a music video director. He even co-directed ‘Cranes in the Sky’ and ‘Don’t Touch My Hair,’ two hit singles from Solange’s 2016 album.
“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,” she wrote.
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.
“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 i’m 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!”
Solange got married to Ferguson in 2014 in New Orleans in a widely decorated event.
This is not her first union. She has been married once before, when she was 17.
Solange had tied the knot with Daniel Smith, 19, on February 27, 2004.
