Solange Knowles Talks About Divorcing at 21

10/2/2007 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce's little sister, Solange Knowles, has already been married, had a child and divorced -- all before she was 21 years old! So that's what she was doing when Beyonce was on tour!

The baby B beauty tells Essence magazine, "I am no longer married ... but I think it's very important not to dish details ... we were basically high school sweethearts." Well, school's out -- forever!

Knowles married college football player, Daniel Smith, in Feburary 2004 and had son Daniel Julez the following October. Timing is everything!

Not taking a backseat to her famous sister, the singer is currently working on a new album -- because who wants to be labeled "Beyonce's younger, less hot sister" for the rest of their life?! Solange also talks about not wanting to be as mainstream as her sister, because she wouldn't be able to go to the mall anymore. She must love her "Hot Dog on a Stick," -- to pick shopping over stardom!

I think she is to be commended for her strength and ability to handle her situations....she wants to do a record and not be as mainstream as b lol why are you doing a record then if not in hopes of success. her attempts at stardom failed because yes she is less pretty and talented than her sister she is weird lookin bubble eyes huge forehead and her voice is not as strong she doesn't have as much vocal range, she is skinny and she cannot act that well. She should either try to be succeful behind the scene, in a different medium, live off her child support, or keep bangng ric dudes who will have her.

Sorry to hear that she is no longer married. But they have a child together so hopefully they will keep things civil for the childs sake and don't do what a lot of celebrity types do and put all there dirty laundry in the street. Life goes on!!

Wow! An article gets done about Solange just because she's a relative? Now, that's a slow news day for TMZ and "Essence." While Beyonce has the, "career," Solange has the, "looks." She's very pretty.

she is not gonna be on welfare for the idiot who posted that. her ex is in the NFL stupid... very well paid... ppl just gotta be negative. And I dont think she wants to be in the limelight like her sister, she is more of a B-list actor.

Her and Ashley Simpson should team up and create a group called:

"My older sister sings and has talent: I on the other hand am a coat tail riding, talentless, less pretty version of her"

Is it a long name for a group? Yes, but it's accurate don't you think? LOL
