Gloria Carter, the mother of American rapper Jay Z, defied age barriers and embraced love as she tied the knot with her partner, Roxanne Wilshire, in Tribeca, New York City.
It was gathered that the wedding ceremony took place on Sunday night, July 2, 2023, and the event was graced by Jay Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, proudly leading the way as a loving son.
Accompanied by his wife, Beyonce, who looked stunning in skyscraper heels, the couple held onto their daughter, Blue Ivy, for support as they walked into the exclusive New York venue Tribeca 360°.
The nuptials were attended by prominent figures like Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, and her cousin, Angie Beyince, with the reliable bodyguard, Julius, clearing the path for their entry into the Manhattan venue.
Among the other esteemed guests present were Kelly Rowland, Tyler Perry, Robin Roberts, and Corey Gamble, who partied until the reception’s end at around 1 am in Tribeca.
As the evening drew to a close the newlyweds were seen leaving the party with Gloria Carter dressed in a white suit, and Roxanne Wilshire in a stunning gold and white shimmery dress.
Jay Z, who has been a staunch supporter of his mother’s sexuality, openly embraced her coming out as gay in his 2017 track “Smile” from the album “4:44.”
The rapper’s lyrics recount how Gloria spent years hiding the fact she was a lesbian while raising four children. He also expressed joy in seeing her find happiness with a partner, presumably referring to Roxanne.
Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has shared a cryptic message on social media revealing that he is dating a lesbian.
