Jay Z’s Mother Gloria Carter Marries Longtime Partner

Iconic rapper, Jay Z’s mother married her partner Roxanne Wilshire last weekend. 

The wedding took place in New York with Jay Z and Beyonce and a host of other celebs in attendance. Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles-Lawson and the singer’s cousin Angie Beyince were also part of the event.

TMZ reports other guests to include Kelly Rowland, Tyler Perry, Robin Roberts and Corey Gamble and they certainly partied hard with the reception, which was held in Tribeca, wrapping up at around 1am. 

As the evening drew to a close the newlyweds were seen leaving the party with Gloria dressed in a white suit, and Roxanne in a stunning gold and white shimmery dress. 

Jay Z, 53, has been openly supportive of his mother’s sexuality since she came out as gay in his 2017 track Smile, which featured on his album 4:44. On the track, the Grammy-winning rapper reveals how Gloria spent years hiding the fact she was a lesbian while raising four children.
