Solange’s boyfriend has always been a mystery. After frequently referring to a “he” on Twitter and sharing close relationships with both rappers Wale and Theophilus London, fans began to wonder who the lucky man was.
Last year, a concertgoer caught a few seconds of her and a man named Alan Ferguson on video partying with Jay-Z and Beyonce, which silenced the rumors, but our suspicions were confirmed yesterday when Solange posted pics of herself, Alan and her son Julez from their month spent in Paris.
She wrote: “I SPENT A MONTH IN PARIS THIS PAST SUMMER WITH JULEZ AND ALAN. I HAVE SPENT MUCH TIME THERE OVER THE YEARS… BUT NOT EVER UNTIL I REALLY “IMMERSED” MY SELF THERE, DID I REALLY FALL DEEPLY IN LOVE WITH THE CITY. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE SIMPLE PLEASURES OF OUR EVERYDAY LIVING. GOING IN THE MORNING FOR BREAD, HANGING LAUNDRY ON THE CLOSE LINE IN THE SHOWER, JULEZ NEGOTIATING THE COST OF GETTING MY HAIR BRAIDED BY LOCALS, (HIS FRENCH SAVED US IN MANY INSTANCES SUCH AS THESE) BUYING THE FRENCH BOOTLEG “CARS 2” DVD IN THE METRO STATION….(ONLY TO ARRIVE HOME TO ARRIVE TO THE CARS -2 BLANK VERSION). WE RENTED A SMALL CHARMING APARTMENT IN THE 10TH…. AND ATE AND DRANK OUR WAY THROUGH BEAUTIFUL, MEMORABLE DAYS.”
The two have been together since at least 2008 when they were spotted at an art gallery together. He is a music video director, having done John Legend’s “Green Light” and more.
