NEW YORK -- Beyonce now has a stepmother

Her father and former manager, Math-ew Knowles, got married last Sunday. His representative told The Associated Press on Friday that he has wed former model Gena Charmaine Avery in Houston, Texas. The pair had been engaged for a year and a half.

The 48-year-old Avery is a realtor. The 61-year-old Knowles guided his daughter to superstardom with the group Destiny’s Child and later in her solo career; she released her father as her manager in 2011.

Knowles, head of Music World Enter-tainment, still manages several gospel acts including Grammy-winner Le’Andria Johnson.

Knowles and Beyonce’s mother, Tina, divorced in 2011 after 31 years of
marriage.
