Mary J Blige and Kendu Isaacs are calling it quits.

Mary J Blige files divorce papers.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LOS ANGELES — It’s no longer a “Family Affair” for Mary J. Blige and, from the look of things, she’s “Not Gon’ Cry” either. After 12 years of marriage, the Queen of Hip Hop has filed for divorce from her husband and longtime manager Kendu Isaacs — citing irreconcilable differences. Mary, 45, also asked the court to obstruct Kendu’s ability to request spousal support. The couple got hitched in an exclusive ceremony on December 7, 2003. Child support won’t be an issue because they have no children together.

The R&B songstress issued the following statement through her representative: “Ms. Blige is saddened to say [that] it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would… but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything.”

“Mary will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time.”

    She should’ve left his azz a thousand times. (Not Gon’ Cry song).

  2. next. yet another not-surprising divorce. no one in this day and age stays married, so there’s no point in marrying any more. stop wasting preacher’s time, stop throwing over-the-top lavished but lame weddings and most of all stop wasting time flying people in from all across the country just to split up and divorce later on in life.

  3. Lol. I loved her song “Not Gon’ Cry”, where she says…

    “Through sickness and health ’till death do us part
    Those were the words that we said from our hearts
    So now when you say that you’re leaving me, I don’t get that part..”

    Funny how she’s the one that left him though.

  4. Mary J. GHETTO HAS NEVER SEEMED HAPPY !!! NEVER! When she 1st hit the music scene, she had Daddy issues. Then she fought a female Extra on the Jamie Foxx Show. Then she fought Model Veronica Webb shortly before that. Then she supposedly had a Filthy heavy drug habit. Then she fought her musician boyfriend of the group Jodeci. And her life seemed even MORE MISERABLE when she married this guy who was rumored to have already been married to another woman at the time !!! (sighs). Mary J. GHETTO will be FOREEVER MISERABLE which is why her SAD Songs Sell–she can relate !!! Mary J. GHETTO WILL ALWAYS BE A MISERABLE PERSON!!! #Karma

  5. First Tamar & Vince , then Keshia Knight and her dude now Mary and what’s his name wth is really going on??!

    Didn’t know about Tamar and her husband, if true glad he “finally” came to his senses. The Keshia Knight thing was sudden. Either her husband is a “sorry” man or he “really” has reason to believe she cheated. If she really did that to him, she won’t have no good luck. Her career will suffer worse. As for Mary J. I’m just shocked. Since marrying him she finally looked happy.

  7. Your husband should never be your manager. This puts the husband in control of the wife and that’s a toxic environment for a relationship!

  8. I’m sorry her marriage hasn’t worked out, but obviously there were big issues. The fact she didn’t allow him to have any female friends, and she didn’t have male friends, shows massive trust issues. If you trust your other half, you wouldn’t mind them being friends with the opposite sex, unless they were too close.

  9. There was gossip item about Blige and her husband a few years back. They were at a club and he was checking out or chatting up a waitress (can’t remember the specifics) and Blige lost it and slapped him across the face in front of everybody and they left the club.

    That being said, I agree with her that for a successful marriage you shouldn’t have friends of the opposite sex, but I don’t agree that you should mandate it on the other person. You should just be with a person who feels the same way about the subject.

    Everytime I saw these two together, I always felt like he was only with her for the money and status and she had to have a tight leash on him and not because she’s control freak, but because she knew what type of guy she was married to.

    Was this her manager from before she made it, or did this guy show up after the fame and fortune?

  10. Black lives matter…but I guess Black love don’t mean ish no more lollol first Keshia Knight now Mary J all in a week smh

  11. I bet MJB is a real bitch behind closed doors

  12. Lesley Delancy

    why when a woman have money they dont want pay spousal…when its the other way they cry

  13. I think she should hit us with the Not gon’ cry part 2! Lord knows this lady makes the best damm heartbreak songs.

  14. Any dumb asses that says they rather see someone unhappy just to get great music is some very miserable individuals!

  15. Eli'ciah Has Spoken

    Marriage is only for two people who really wanna be married. But I agree , Block that spousal support.

  16. Mary’s dude was in jail in that marriage. I remember her saying, on some show (Unsung maybe? Can’t recall), that he couldn’t have female friends…period! That’s just making someone suffer for your past experiences, in my opinion. That level of paranoia is a recipe for divorce. I bet it had something to do with that.
