Beyonce’s Dad Gets Married — But Why Didn’t Beyonce Attend?
Queen Bey has a new stepmom!
Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, married former model Gena Charmaine Avery on June 30 in Houston, according to Us Weekly.
Matthew, 61, and 48-year-old Gena, who is now a realtor, have been engaged for a year and a half.
Matthew and Beyonce's mom, Tina, divorced in 2011 after being married for 31 years. He is the head of Music World Entertainment and was Beyonce's manager until March 2011.
However, neither Beyonce, 31, nor her 27-year-old sister Solange attended the wedding last weekend.
"Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend," Matthew says.
Congrats to Matthew and Gena! We hope they're crazy in love.
