Mathew Knowles is confirmed to have exchanged wedding vows with Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas.
Beyonce has a new woman, in her life.
Her father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, got married last Sunday. His representative told The Associated Press on Friday that he has wed former model Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas. The pair had been engaged for a year and a half.
The 48-year-old Avery is a realtor. The 61-year-old Knowles guided his daughter to superstardom with the group Destinyâ€™s Child and later in her solo career; she released her father as her manager in 2011.
Knowles, head of Music World Entertainment, still manages several gospel acts including Grammy-winner Leâ€™Andria Johnson.
Knowles and Beyonceâ€™s mother, Tina, divorced in 2011 after 31 years of marriage and two children â€” Beyonce and her sister, fellow singer Solange.
It’s unclear if his famous daughters Beyonce and Solange Knowles were present. The two who were usually avid users of social media kept unusually quiet about their father’s nuptials. In fact, Solange hinted on Twitter that she was in a vacation in Dakar this past weekend.
Congrats to them!
