Matthew Knowles with wife, Gena Avery

Who is Beyoncé's Step Mom? Meet Matthew Knowles' Wife, Gena Avery


"The first call was to my family," explained Matthew Knowles on ABC's Good Morning America this morning. The record executive, producer and businessman was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. But instead of worrying about his own symptoms, he wanted to take care first of the people the closest to him. 

The father-of-four received surgery in the last week of July, spending a few weeks in aftercare. Matthew's wife, Gena Avery was there for him throughout, offering her enduring support.
