Solange Knowles And Beyonce Both Ditch Father's Wedding
The two singers weren't present for their father, Mathew Knowles, as he re-married last month following his messy 2009 divorce from their mother
Solange Knowles wasn't with her father when he exchanged vows for a second time and neither was her sister, Beyonce Knowles, as the two apparently had prior engagements that made it impossible for them to attend the Houston, Texas, ceremony. Mathew Knowles, 61, married former model Gena Charmaine Avery, 48, on June 30 in front of family and friends, but not everyone of his family found time to see the CEO and president of Music World Entertainment re-marry.

"Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend," he said in a statement to US Weekly, failing to back up his statement with any explanation as to where they were. The two ladies have had a frosty relationship with their father since he split from their mother and his wife of 31 years, Tina Knowles, back in 2011. Beyonce also decided to part ways with Mathew as her manager, although at the time she said her decision was only motived in a business sense. Mathew had managed Destiny's Child from their very beginnings and continued to manage his daughter as she conquered the world as a solo artist.
Mathew re-married on June 30
At the time of his divorce, it was revealed that Mathew does only have two daughters, but also a son from a secret relationship that he managed to keep hidden from his family for a number of years. The revelation into his personal life left a huge rift in the Knowles household and with his wedding passing by it seems as though that rift is very much still in plain sight.
