Beyonce and Solange Didn’t Go To Their Dad’s Wedding. Sorry, Papa Knowles!

Beyoncé  has been a busy little Bey lately — no surprise. But so has Solange — Imma find that one a little surprising. Both girls were too busy to attend their dad’s wedding. From TMZ:

Mathew Knowles got hitched last Sunday, but TMZ has learned neither of his daughter … Beyonce nor Solange … was in attendance for the big day.

Knowles tied the knot to Gena Avery in Houston, TX following a year and a half engagement.

But the newly-hitched Knowles tells TMZ his famous kids couldn’t make it to the ceremony, saying, “Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend.”

You know what, it sucks, but I get it. Sometimes the timing is all wrong and you have to work. And if it’s hard enough for your average Dave to get out of work to go to a family’s wedding, it’s gotta be 10x harder for Beyoncé because she has no one to cover for her (assuming of course, that work is the real reason…I guess “previous engagements” could be a nice way of saying “I’m mad you divorced mom so I’m not going to support you.” I don’t know). Solange Knowles, though, really? Cannes is over. Where else do you need to be and what else do you need to do?

Hopefully Mrs. Carter sent her dad a case of champagne…and In-N-Out burgers.
