Beyonce and Solange Skip Dad Mathew Knowles’ Wedding
Beyonce and Solange were no shows at their father Mathew Knowles’ recent wedding, TMZ reports.
Knowles, who managed Beyonce until she opted to go her own way in 2011, married former model Gena Charmaine Avery last weekend in Houston, Texas. Avery, 48, and Knowles, 61, had been engaged for a year and half before exchanging vows.
“Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend,” Knowles told the gossip site. Beyonce is currently in the middle of the U.S. leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, while Solange performed behind her lastest EP True at Glastonbury last weekend.
Knowles, head of Music World Entertainment, ended his marriage with Beyonce and Solange’s mother Tina Knowles in 2011 after 31 years of marriage. Tina filed for divorce in 2009 after news hit that Mathew had fathered a love child with former Scrubs actress Alexsandra White. While Knowles denied the affair, a paternity test later proved the contrary. White, 40, gave birth to a son in February 2010 following their 18 month affair.
