Solange Knowles has split from her husband.

The 33-year-old singer – who is the younger sister of Beyonce Knowles – has revealed that she and Alan Ferguson, who met 11 years ago, had decided to go their separate ways earlier this year following five years of marriage.

Taking to her Instagram account on Friday, she said: “the past 2 years have brought me more physical and spiritual transition and evolution than ever before

“11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life.”

“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 nobody 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.”

Solange has had a tough few years recently, as back in December 2017 she revealed that she had been receiving treatment for an autonomic disorder.
