American singer, songwriter, model, record producer and actress, Mary Jane Blige has filed for divorce from her husband and former manager, Kendu Isaacs after 12 years.
“Ms. Blige is saddened to say it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would,” her publicist Karynne Tencer said in a statement. “But there is a divine plan and a reason for everything.”
Blige lists the date of separation as “to be determined” — unclear why.
Blige cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. They couple has no children together.
There is one interesting note … Blige is asking the judge to block Isaacs’ ability to get spousal support. The document does not say if there is a prenup.
We reached out to Blige and Isaacs — so far, no word back.
Unclear what went wrong — but back in 2014, Blige talked about the challenges of dating her manager during an interview with Stella Magazine.
“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.”
