by at .  Updated at . Comments

Mathew Knowles is a married man again.

Beyonce's father tied the knot with former model Gena Charmaine Avery on Sunday, June 30 in Houston, Tex., after a year and a half engagement.

The superstar singer's former manager, 61, and Avery, 48, currently a realtor, got together after Mathew's divorce from Tina Knowles in 2011.

They were married 31 years.

Mathew Knowles said daughters Beyonce, 31, and Solange, 27, did not attend the wedding because of "previous engagements which made it impossible."

Knowles, head of Music World Entertainment, stopped managing his daughter's career in March 2011, a decision both say carried no hard feelings.

"We've only parted ways on a business level," Beyonce said. "He is my father for life and I love him dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me."

"I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina] manage and own their businesses. They're hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

Mathew confirmed his nuptials to Us.

Congratulations to the couple!
