"You'll always be my first husband."

Talk about a whirlwind romance. 

Elle King, the rock star daughter of Rob Schneider, whose single "Ex's & Oh's" was the toast of summer 2015, revealed on Instagram that not only was she secretly married after dating Scotsman Andrew Ferguson, who goes by Fergie, for only three weeks, but she's also since separated after a little over a year of wedded bliss. 

"We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016," wrote King in the caption of a photo taken Monday. The 27-year-old's engagement was documented on Instagram last year, however the nuptials were not publicized. Of the private ceremony, King wrote that "it was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life." A public ceremony had been scheduled for April, but was called off. 

Of the official breakup, she wrote, "My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You'll always have my heart. You'll always be my first husband." Rumors of her split began to circulate earlier this year after she posted a photo of herself with two friends which she captioned, "All the single ladies." 

In closing, King asked that fans be respectful of her heartbreak. "Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time," she wrote. "Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind."
