The singer opened up about her “personal truth.”
Solange Knowles revealed on Instagram this yesterday afternoon that she and her husband “separated and parted ways” earlier this year.
She explained that she’s speaking out to “have power” over her story and “protect the sacredness of my personal truth.”
Knowles and Ferguson married in November 2014.
Solange Knowles is making sure she’s in control of her own narrative.
Opening up in an emotional Instagram caption today, the singer and younger sister of Beyoncé revealed that she and her husband, Alan Ferguson, broke up earlier this year. “11 years ago i met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life,” part of her lengthy message read. “Early this year we separated and parted ways, (and tho it ain’t nan no body business 😭).”
Knowles explained that after growing up in the spotlight, she’s prone to “protect her heart,” which is likely why she’s private about her personal life. But this time, she chose to speak out in order to “protect” her truth and be in control of how her story is shared.
“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,” she added. “It is unfair to not have power of your own story as you shape and mold and rewrite it yourself.”
