Beyoncé And Solange Are No Shows At Father's Wedding

Beyoncé and her sister Solange did not show up to the wedding of their father, Matthew Knowles, who wed former model Gena Charmaine Avery after a year-and-a-half long engagement.

"Unfortunately, Beyoncé and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend," Knowles told US Weekly. Solange, in fact, performed at the Glastonbury Music Festival on the wedding night, while Bey did not have a date scheduled on her current Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Matthew and Beyoncé have had their differences in the past with the latter cutting ties with her father, opting to manage her career on her own in 2011. notes that Matthew divorced the girls' mother, Tina, after having an extramarital affair and out-of-wedlock child, an incident which led to further familial strife.
