Solange Knowles has revealed she secretly split from her partner of 11 years.
The artist, who’s also Beyoncé’s little sister, shared the sad news on Instagram, revealing that the pair went their separate ways earlier this year.
She wrote, ‘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.
‘I’ve 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.’
Alan is a music video director and Solange had previously opened up about how their relationship started.
She told NecoleBitchie.com, “Certainly, in the beginning, I was the one who approached him, so I have always sort of historically been one of those girls that goes after something that I’m into.
“I’m not very old school and like, I’m gonna wait on you, wait for you to approach me type of situation. I have a lot of guy-like quintessential relationship qualities that I have had to work on.”
The pair were together for 11 years and married for four, after tying the knot in 2015.
This was Solange’s second marriage – she shares son Daniel with ex-husband Daniel Smith, who she was married to between 2004 and 2007.
