Being famous most definitely comes at a cost as we’re constantly reminded of how some of our favorite celebrities almost always have their personal business in public no matter how hard they try to keep it private.

As human as they also are, their statuses as social figures, and to a large extent, role models, put them in the spotlight at any point in time whether they like it or not.

From leaked personal announcements to revelations of secrets, tabloids and gossip platforms are frequently successful when it comes to obtaining such information.

Despite these shortcomings, some celebrities have mastered the craft of keeping their personal lives private, coming out to reveal whatever information they want to share with their fans and the public as and when they deem necessary or not even doing it at all.

With divorce in Hollywood being a highly publicized thing, it’s very difficult for couples to keep their separation from public knowledge.

However, these black celebrities were successful in keeping theirs a secret with some eventually making it public only after a very long while.

At the beginning of November, Solange Knowles announced her separation from Alan Ferguson, her music video director and husband of five years.

Taking to her Instagram, Solange revealed they parted ways early this year.

“I’ve always tried to live in my truth no matter how ugly or full of love it is. I’ve also tried to carve out the space to protect my heart, and my life as it unfolds, evolves, and changes,” she partly captioned.

“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,” she added.

The couple, who were married for eight years, announced their amicable separation via a joint statement at the end of last month.

“We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have. Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage. Our union was such a gorgeous ride. And as we go our separate ways now, we feel fortunate for the love we share – present tense,” they shared.

“Thank you all out there for your support of us as a couple over the last eight years. We are grateful.”
