On How Her Failed Marriage Brought Her Closer To Beyoncé:
Knowles met Julez’s father, Daniel Smith, now a college-football coach, when she was 13 and he was 16. Though Solange, 26, and Beyoncé, 31, are five years apart, they became “super-duper close,” she says, after Solange got pregnant at 17, married Smith, and followed him to Idaho, where he was attending college. Being a mom, she says, “was always chill and easy for me.” But “marriage is a whole ’nother ball game.” She was divorced by the time she was 21. It was a time “when you really, really need your sister. Every time there was drama and I was all the way in Idaho, it was nice to be able to call. Now it’s kind of a reversal, with her getting married and having a baby after me.”
