Beyonce and Solange Knowles skip dad's wedding

Raise your children with Love and understanding while they’re still young and always be there for them, because if you don’t, they won’t be there for you later. Mathew Knowles, father of singers Beyonce and Solange Knowles, wed his 2nd wife last weekend, but the sisters did not attend. Beyonce fired her father as her manager after the music executive impregnated a female employee while still married to Bey’s mother, Tina Knowles. The Knowles’ divorced soon after his illegitimate son was born in 2011. Beyonce and Solange barely speak to their father now.

From NY Daily News:

Mathew Knowles recently wed his longtime love Gena Avery in a Houston ceremony on June 30, but the music mogul’s famous daughters, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, weren’t there to bear witness to their dad’s nuptials.

“Unfortunately, Beyoncé and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend,” Knowles, 61, told US Weekly.

While Solange performed at the Glastonbury Music Festival in England that night, Beyoncé did not have a show scheduled for her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
The “Diva” singer’s absence raises questions of estrangement. Mathew Knowles managed Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé’s solo career until she decided to cut ties in 2011, but the pop star said the decision to fire her dad was not a personal one.
