The Carter family matriarch married her longtime companion Roxanne Wiltshire in a ceremony in New York City’s Tribeca area over the weekend, according to TMZ, which released photographs from the occasion.
JAY-Z and his wife, Beyoncé, as well as other famous visitors like as Kelly Rowland, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Tyler Perry, and Robin Roberts, joined the event.
Beyoncé debuted her attire for the occasion in an Instagram photo, where she sported a peach-colored combination that included a corseted Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit and a matching skirt. She finished her appearance with a feathery jacket, lace purse, and sunglasses.
Blue Ivy, the “Renaissance” artist’s daughter with the “Empire State of Mind” rapper, looked stunning in a floor-length sage green silk Reformation gown. She finished off her look with a chain necklace and stiletto shoes.
JAY-Z initially revealed his mother’s sexual orientation to him in 2017 on the tune “Smile.”
“Mama had four children, but she’s a lesbian/Had to pretend to be a thespian for so long/She had to hide in the closet to medicate/”The shame of society and the pain were too much to bear,” the 53-year-old Grammy winner rapped in the song.
“I shed tears of pleasure when you fell in love/I don’t care if it’s a him or a her/I simply want to see you smile despite all the hate/Marie Antoinette, honey, let ’em eat cake.”
During an interview on David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction series on Netflix, the “Run This Town” singer said that he did cry with excitement when his mother announced that she had fallen in love.
“Imagine having to live your life as someone else and thinking you’re protecting your kids,” he said in 2018. “When she sat in front of me and said, ‘I think I love someone,’ I sobbed…”I cried because I was so happy for her because she was finally free.”
“I was sitting there telling him one day.” I only recently began telling him who I was. Apart from your mother, this is who I am, you know? “This is the life I lived,” she explained.
“So my son began genuinely, like, sobbing because he was like, ‘That had to be a horrific life, Ma.’ I was like, ‘My life was never awful. It was simply different.’ As a result, he decided to write a song about it.”
