Rapper Jay-Z’s mother Gloria Carter tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Roxanne Wilshire in a star-studded wedding in New York City.
Jay-Z and his famous wife Beyonce were among the witnesses of the event that happened on Sunday night.
Among the Hollywood celebrities who attended were Tyler Perry and Kelly Rowland. The others were Tina Knowles and Robin Roberts.
The wedding comes five years after Gloria came out as a grinder through her son’s song, “Smile.”
In the song, Gloria revealed that she lives a double life, one of happiness and one of fear; afraid of what people would think and say, and even do about his new situation.
Jay-Z has been praised in the West for accepting and giving his mother a platform to speak.
In 2019, he also honored her at the GLAAD Media Awards, for allowing her to tell her story.
Beyonce also praised her uncle who is openly gay and praised him for his strong fight against HIV.
