Mary J. Blige Divorcing Husband/Manager Martin "Kendu" Isaacs After 12 Years Of Marriage!


Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her manager and husband of 12 years, Martin (Kendu) Isaacs.

The singer cited the standard "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce. One interesting note is Blige has requested the judge block her estranged husband's spousal support.

Blige and Isaacs' separation date is "to be determined." The couple do not share any children together and it is not clear at this time if they had a prenuptial agreement in place. Mary's net worth is an estimated $10 million. 




The "Family Affair" singer married Issacs  in 2003 at her home in Bergen County, New Jersey.
In a 2014 interview with The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine, the singer discussed her marriage to Isaacs. She revealed that she will not let Isaacs have female friends. She makes sure all of her friends are women. 

Blige stated, "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… Being a single person and an artist, there’s a lot of selfishness that you don’t even know you have. Being a wife, it’s not all about me."

She also admitted it could be a little difficult when you are married to your manager. Blige 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."

The R&B singer, who has been nicknamed the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul", began her career in 1989 with hits like "No More Drama" and "Real Love." She has reportedly sold over 50 million albums and has been awarded 9 Grammy Awards.
