Beyonce & Solange Knowles' Dad Remarries but Both Daughters Skip Wedding

beyonce solangeBeyonce and Solange Knowles' father, Michael Knowles, got remarried on Sunday, June 30 to former model Gena Charmaine, but neither daughter attended the nuptials. In a statement, Michael explained why his two children couldn't make it to the affair, saying: "Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend."

Previous engagements. Sure they did. 

It's no secret that Beyonce has had issues with her father in the past. The singer fired Michael as her manager in March of 2011, the same year he and Beyonce's mother, Tina, got divorced. At the time, Beyonce said that the decision was strictly a business one, telling Us Weekly: "I've only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me." But her decision to not attend her own father's wedding makes it seem like there's more to the story. In fact, I'm not one to gossip, but there have been rumors that the reason Michael and Tina Knowles got divorced is because he cheated on her and fathered a love child with a mistress. So yeah, I could kind of see how there would be hard feeling there.

I can understand Michael being a bit embarrassed and not wanting to flat-out say that his kids just didn't come to his wedding. But come on, Michael, who do you think you're fooling? Your children are Beyonce and Solange. If they want to be somewhere, they could easily make it happen.

What do you think of this?

It's their decision and they shouldn't have to release a statement justifying their every move.

My husband and I skipped his sister's latest wedding. He's sick of having to travel, often at short notice, to see her wed the latest beau. There's lots of reasons why people skip weddings, even if they love the person in the wedding, and it's between them and that person.

Affairs are bad enough, but when there is a child born of  that affair, it is the ultimate betrayal of trust.Can't say I would have been at that wedding either.

He didn't wed the mistress who had the child with but another woman.

Everyone is grown and it's their decision if they attend the father's wedding or not they shouldn't have to explain anything to the media or the world. Media just mind your own business period....

Guess outta respect for their mother, he humilated her by cheating and having a baby. Father or not i wouldnt have been thrilled to attend either. They aint feeling the joy.
