Sad news ladies and gentlemen. TMZ reported that Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her husband and manager Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, ending their 12-year marriage.
In the documents filed, Blige lists the date of separation as “to be determined.” But it is unclear why.
The reason for divorce is listed as irreconcilable differences.
The couple has no children together but Isaacs has three children, in their early twenties or late teens, from a previous relationship.
Perhaps the most interesting and telling part of the story is that Mary J is trying to protect her assets. According to documents she is asking that the judge block Isaacs from being able to collect spousal support. The document does not say whether or not there is a prenup involved.
Obviously no one but the two of them know what went wrong in their marriage; but Mary has shared some interesting thoughts about being marred to her manager and not wanting him to have female friends.
We’re sad to hear this. But hopefully, everything plays out peacefully and Mary doesn’t have to go through any additional pain and heartache.
