Beyonce has a new stepmom: Her father Mathew Knowles married former model Gena Charmaine Avery last weekend.
A rep for Mr. Knowles confirms to the Associated Press that the couple tied the knot on Sunday (June 30) following a year and a half engagement. Knowles is 61 and Avery is 48.
Knowles managed his superstar daughter’s career first with the group Destiny’s Child and then as a solo act. Beyonce ended their professional relationship in 2011, the same year her parents (Mathew and her mother, Tina) finalized their divorce.
Beyonce documented what led to her decision in her recent HBO confessional film “Life is But a Dream.”
