Solange Knowles and her split from husband Alan Ferguson
The sister of singer Beyonce, Solange Knowles has separated from her music video director husband of five years, Alan Ferguson. On 1 November 2019, Solange took to her social media to announce her divorce from Alan. She wrote on her Instagram:
“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!”
Along with this lengthy post, Solange put up three pictures of herself. The couple separated earlier this year.
