Solange Knowles and her husband Alan Ferguson have not been together since earlier this year. Knowles announced this via Instagram on Friday.

"Eleven years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed my whole life. Earlier this year we got divorced and went our own way," Knowles writes on Instagram. According to her, it doesn't really matter to anyone, but she still tries to be as honest as possible. "Since I was a teenager I have experienced my best and worst moments before the eyes of the world. I have always tried to live by my truth, no matter how ugly or loving it may be."

Alan Ferguson (56) is known as a director of music videos. He directed videos for countless artists, including Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe and Tiësto. For Knowles he directed videos with the songs Cranes in the Sky (2016) and Don't Touch my Hair (2016).

Knowles and Ferguson got married in 2014 in a church in New Orleans. The ceremony was attended by Beyoncé, Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy at the time.
