Solange Knowles Denies Cheating On Her Husband With Her Manager
After announcing that she and husband of five years, Alan Ferguson, were calling time on their marriage, Solange Knowles has been forced to defend herself against rumours that she had been unfaithful.
When a picture surfaced online of the singer and her longtime manager John Bogaard appearing close, the rumour mill went into overdrive with whispers that the 33-year-old had cheated on her estranged husband with Bogaard, with several comments also taking aim at the fact he is white.
Shutting down the rumours in a post to her Instagram story, Solange denied the allegations that she been unfaithful, she wrote:
“Yo [thank you] @onvaction for bein[g] the best co-manager for 5 years,” she captioned the photo that had circulated. “Sorry the internetsss are so unkind n b lying. Go back to enjoying ya vacation.”
Solange first announced the split in the caption of an Instagram post which featured a series of selfies, which read:
“11 years ago I met a phenomenal man who changed every existence of my life. Early this year we separated and parted ways,” Knowles said in her post. “The past two 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.”
Revealing that the pair had separated "early this year", she added that she felt it was necessary to tell fans of the split, "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,” she said.
She continued, “But I’m leaning into the fear of the unknown and all the glory and power I know exist within god and the universes grace.”
Knowles and Ferguson tied the knot back in 2014 in a New Orleans wedding.
Solange was previously married to Daniel Smith, whom she wed when she was just at 17-years-old. They share one son, Daniel Juelz J. Smith Jr. together.
