Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson attend "A Seat At The Table", a listening event for Solange's new album at Saint Heron House on Oct. 7, 2016 in New Orleans. 

Solange Knowles took to Instagram on Friday (Nov. 1) to announce that she and her husband Alan Ferguson "separated and parted ways" earlier this year. They had been married for almost five years.

In an inspirational post, she noted that "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," she added, and though they are no longer together, "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 n---- 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," she continued, "may all of your transitions no matter how big or small, be kind to you and filled with incredible love and light!"

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. ive lived my best and worst moments in front of the lens and gaze of the world since i was a teenager. 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!
