Ginuwine and Sole

R&B singer Ginuwine reluctantly confirmed rumors that he is separated from his wife of 11 years, American rapper Tonya M. Johnston, aka Solé.

In a social media post, Ginuwine, whose real name is Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, confirmed that he and Solé were separated, and they have no money to hire divorce lawyers, so they are working toward ending their marriage “amicably” and “fairly” without lawyers. The singer stressed that he and Solé were not yet divorced.

Lumpkin and Solé have two daughters together, Dream Sarae Lumpkin, 12, and Story, 13. Lumpkin also has a 22-year-old son Elgin, Jr., in addition to at least 5 other children by various baby mamas.

Sources say Solé was fed up with Ginuwine’s cheating ways. Thankfully she waited until her children were old enough to understand that sometimes — well, most of the time, marriages simply don’t work out.

Though women believe they are entitled to keep a man all to themselves, Nature has other plans.

By spreading his seed generously among the female population, Lumpkin is only doing what God intended men to do: be fruitful and multiply to ensure the survival of the human species.
