Solange confirmed on Friday that she and her husband Alan Ferguson separated earlier this year.
“11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life,” wrote Solange. “[E]arly 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. [I] t is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself.”
Solange may have felt compelled to announce their separation due to months of speculation and a few reports surfacing this week that they’d divorced. One report alluded that Solange was possibly cheating on Ferguson with an alleged clip of her out with another man.
The former couple, introduced by Janelle Monae, married in November of 2014 in New Orleans. They share no kids.
