Wedding bells rung once again for Beyonce‘s father and former manager, Mathew Knowles.
In a surprise statement to The Associated Press, reps for 61-year-old (famed for steering his daughter and Destiny’s Child to the top of the charts) announced that he tied the knot last week.
All the details after the jump…
According to the report, Knowles wed Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas last Sunday after a year and a half of engagement.
Relatively unknown, 48-year-old Avery is a realtor — a career path she pursued after a stint as a model.
The wedding revelation marks a return to the headlines for Knowles, who has maintained a low profile since first wife (and Beyonce’s mother) Tina Knowles filed for divorce after he fathered a child with his secretary Alexsandra Wright in 2009. Beyonce parted ways with him as a manager two years later.
In any case, we guess congrats are in order….right? You know, “second chances, fresh starts” and all that jazz? Clearly, Ms. Gena thinks so.
