Mary J. Blige's 12-year marriage to husband and manager Martin "Kendu" Isaacs is coming to an end. According to TMZ, the R&B singer cited irreconcilable differences in court documents for the breakup. She also allegedly is asking the judge to block Isaacs from receiving spousal support.
In 2014, Blige opened up about her marriage in an interview with U.K.'s The Telegraph. "It definitely feels like an achievement. I never thought I’d last this long in a marriage," she said at the time. “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."
