Solange Knowles has announced that she and her husband Alan Ferguson have called it quits after five years of marriage.

The “Cranes in the Sky” singer took to social media on Friday (Nov. 1) to share the news of their separation. “11 years ago i met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life,” Solange wrote. “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 n—a 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!”

She also gave an update on her health. Solange revealed back in 2017 that she was being treated for an autonomic disorder. The 33-year-old continued, “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.”

The former couple wed in New Orleans on Nov. 16, 2014.

Ferguson is responsible for directing visuals for Solange’s records “Cranes in the Sky” and “Don’t Touch My Hair” from her A Seat at the Table album. He also directed videos for Beyoncé and JAY-Z.
