Singer Mary J Blige and her husband, manager/producer Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs, are getting a divorce.
The 45-year-old R&B star filed for divorce to end her 12 year marriage to Martin Isaacs.
Blige just filed the divorce documents seeking to end her union from Martin “Kendu” Isaacs who she married back in 2003.
She cited the reason for the divorce as being “irreconcilable differences”.
Documents Blige filed on Thursday do not list specifically when Blige and Isaacs split.
They have been married since 2003, but do not have any children together.
Interestingly, in the divorce papers, Blige did ask a judge not to give Isaacs spousal support.
The documents also show that Blige and Isaacs did not sign a prenup.
Representatives of both Blige and Isaacs are yet to comment on the divorce.
Mary J Blige Divorces Manager Citing Irreconciliable Differences
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Mary J Blige’s net worth is estimated to be $10 million.
In a 2014 interview with The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, Blige revealed that she will not let Isaacs have female friends.
She makes sure all of her friends are women, technically banning him from having female friends.
She had said:
“He always has my back — he’s going to fight to the death for Mary J Blige. The downside is that there’s no separation — it’s on all the time.
“When you don’t feel like answering to your manager, he’s still your husband.
“If one of you doesn’t want to talk about something right now, you have to respect that.
“And you have to respect each other’s space.
“All females for me, all guys for him. There’s none of that, ‘Oh, that’s my female friend. Oh, that’s my guy friend.’
“No. Not in a marriage, I’ve never seen that work.”
