Beyonce and her sister Solange have a new Stepmother, on paper at least. According to The Associated Press, their father and former manager, Mathew Knowles, wed model girlfriend Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas last weekend. Knowles, 61, and Avery, 48, had been engaged for a year and a half.
Neither Beyonce or Solange were on hand for the new matrimony. "Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend," a source told TMZ.
Matthew officially divorced his daughters' mother, Tina Knowles, in 2011 after she filed for divorce in 2009. The former couple was married for 29 years.
