Mary J. Blige & Kendu Isaacs Split After 12 Years of Marriage

Mary J. Blige & Kendu Isaacs Split After 12 Years of Marriage

Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs.

The 45-year-old entertainer and her manager married back in 2003. Mary cited “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce papers, and did not note a split date, TMZ reports.

The couple have no children together. Mary did ask the courts in her papers to deny Kendu any spousal support, and it does not note if there is a prenup.

“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,” Mary said in a 2014 interview about the downside of working with your spouse. “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.”
