Elle King is an American actress, singer, and songwriter. Her music style is a mix of soul, rock and country. For a long time, Elle’s fans have believed that she has always been a single woman. However, she has recently revealed the shocking truth about her failed secret marriage, leaving fans feeling shocked. Elle King is an artist who has kept much of her life private, while focusing on building her career and fan base. It is remains unclear what prompted Elle’s public and very painful revelation.
Elle King turned to Instagram with an uploaded a photo of her with her now ex-husband Andrew Ferguson that to confirm ongoing rumors. She did this on Monday. Captioning the photo was a heartfelt message that indeed confirmed she had been married.
“We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony.”
Sometimes, we hope after we share a deep truth about ourselves to the world; especially about our relationships is that we will get more love and affection from our better halves for choosing to be honest. However, after Elle King made this information public, she and her husband Ferguson split shortly after. It probably goes to show that Ferguson had not intended for the news to go out that way and thus decided to leave his wife.
“Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time. Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind,” she wrote. Initially in the month of March, King had again sparked some tension or rather raised the eyebrows of her fans by posting a photo on Instagram which had the caption “single ladies”. This was shared not long after the disclosure of her secret marriage of three years.
Like Elle, many celebrities end up in a state of stress. Many of them living their lives and sharing only certain aspects of their identity, choosing to keep their fans in the dark. For some, we learn of secret children, affairs, and scandalous histories. Others, like Elle King make us believe that they’ve ventured into their careers as single people, revealing their statuses much later and losing the respect of their fans.
