Elle King Shares Instagram Tribute to Ex Andrew Ferguson as She Reveals He's 10 Months Sober
Elle King has a lot to be thankful for this year.
“Somebody smart told me that every day should be national grateful day. Not just thanksgiving. I just want to say that I am grateful to have made it through this year. And the guy I married is 10 months sober today,” King wrote.
“I’m proud of him setting a good example. I know I’m no example for anybody, but I am trying to walk the walk of what I hope to receive from the world in my life. I’m grateful for forgiveness and new beginnings. I’m proud of you Ferg, 10 months is a long time to be sober and I’m grateful for you being alive.”
King did not give any other details about Andrew’s sobriety.
In February 2016, the Grammy nominee announced she was engaged to Ferguson just a couple of weeks after meeting him. The singer documented their love story on Instagram and even shared wedding plans on a March episode of Say Yes to the Dress.
However, in May, King revealed in an emotional Instagram post that she and Ferguson had actually secretly married three weeks after they met — and had separated shortly after. She wrote at the time, “My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost.”

Earlier this month, King told PEOPLE that she’s in a better place.
“I don’t want to say it’s the best place I’ve ever been because there’s always room to go higher — or get higher,” she said.
“I am having a lot of fun. I do this thing, I call it protecting my joy, and there’s like a 10-foot radius around me that’s like a bum-out-free zone. I took a lot of things out of my life that were dead weight, and I just have a different outlook; I just surround myself with better people and just make music all the time. It’s just so great; it’s awesome.”
