Gena Charmaine Avery has gone from an unknown former model and realtor to a highly searched celeb after marrying Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s father and ex-manager – and getting snubbed by Beyonce, 31, and her sister Solange, 27, who both skipped the wedding.

Knowles, 61, confirmed to Us Weekly that he married Avery, 48, on June 30 in Houston, Texas after being engaged for a year and a half and that Beyonce and Solange were not in attendance.

"Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend," he said.

The Daily Mail reports that Avery is both a former model and a former realtor.

Knowles divorced Beyonce and Solange's mother, Tina, in 2011 after 31 years of marriage. They split in 2009 after it was revealed that Knowles had an affair and a baby boy, Nixon, with actress Alexsandra Wright. Beyonce ended her professional relationship with her father in 2011.

On the wedding day, Beyonce and Solange were both touring. Beyonce is on her Mrs. Carter World Tour while Solange is touring to promote her new EP, “True.”

However, there may be more to the story as there have long been rumors about Beyonce’s strained relationship with her father, especially in the wake of his divorce.

Beyonce opened up about the struggles of their managerial relationship in her documentary, “Life Is But A Dream.”

“My dad knew that I needed his approval,” she said. “And I think my father wouldn't give it to me. Because he kept pushing me. And kept pushing me. And kept pushing me. Every time my dad pushed me, I got better and stronger.”

'I needed a break, I needed my dad,” she said. “I had to let go.”
