Solange And Husband Alan Ferguson SPLIT After 11 Years Together: ‘A N*gga Ain’t Perfect’

Rumors have been swirling for quite some time, but now it’s official official — Solange and Alan Ferguson have separated after being together 11 years .

They met in 2008 after being introduced by Janelle Monae and eventually got married in 2014.

Solange took to Instagram to share a note on life and confirm their separation.

She writes:

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!

Solange’s Saint Heron Announces Furniture Collaboration With….

Solange Knowles’s Saint Heron collective has announced a new collaboration with furniture giant Ikea. The endeavour will “[explore] architectural and design objects with multifunctional use,” Saint Heron wrote in a statement, adding “Stay tuned for more information!”

“Contemporary art is a huge part of people’s life today,” Marcus Engman, head of design at IKEA Range & Supply, said. “At IKEA we are curious about the creative space in between architecture, design, art, and music and how that could come alive in the homes of the many people. This is what we want to explore together with Saint Heron.”

Solange is currently working on a follow-up album. IKEA rejected Kanye West’s offer to work on furniture in 2016, but released a collaboration with OFF-WHITE’s Virgil Abloh in 2017.

Solange And Kanye West Model In Helmut Lang’s New Project

Solange and Kanye West are both basically fashion icons in their own right, but the two musicians just starred in a new project for Helmut Lang.

Teaming up with Exactitudes, an ongoing photo project since 1994, Helmut Lang tapped Solange, West and ten other multi-generational fans of the fashion label for a photo series to highlight the brand’s biggest collectors.  

Solange posed in a t-shirt from the Re-Edition Volume 1 collection with a pair of Helmut Lang seen by Shayne Oliver shorts while Kanye wore a hooded parka and sweater from the Re-Edition Volume 1 line and his own Helmut Lang jeans. The photos were shot by Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, the founders of Exactitudes, in a similar three-by-four grid style they’ve become famous for.

Solange Diagnosed With Autonomic Disorder

Solange recently revealed that she is experiencing health issues. In a post on her social media page, Solange shared that she has an autonomic disorder.

“It’s a complicated diagnoses , and I’m still learning so much myself, but right now, my doctors are not clearing me for such an extended lengthy flight, and doing a rigorous show right after,” Solange wrote.

Symptoms can include problems with the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, perspiration, and bowel and bladder functions. Other symptoms include fatigue, lightheadedness, feeling faint or passing out (syncope), weakness, and cognitive impairment, according to info given by the Mayo Clinic.

In 2016, Solange found her own voice by releasing the classic album, A Seat at the Table. She was scheduled to perform at the Afro Punk show in South Africa on New Year’s Eve. However, she will have to cancel the show due to the health disorder.
