Beyonce's Dad, Matthew Knowles, Marries Long-Time Girlfriend
Beyonce’s dad, Matthew Knowles, has married his longtime girlfriend Gena Avery in a private ceremony in Houston, Texas. The pair had been engaged for almost two years. Sources say that neither daughters, Beyonce or Solange, attended the wedding.
Avery, 48, is a realtor and former model. Knowles, who is 61-years old, is the founder of Music World Entertainment which manages several gospel acts. He is also the founder of Destiny's Child, and has been credited for successfully launching Beyonce's solo career.
A few years ago, Knowles, while still married to Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, was accused of infidelity and even fathered a child with his then-mistress. The two divorced in 2011 after more than 30 years of marriage.
