The couple had been engaged for about a year and a half. Knowles and Beyoncé’s mother, Tina, divorced in 2011 after 31 years of marriage.

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 Entertainment, still manages several gospel acts including Grammy-winner Le’Andria Johnson.
