Mary J Blige Divorce
Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, citing irreconcilable differences.

The 45-year-old singer decided to end her marriage to her longtime spouse and manager this month and also requested “to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to Isaacs,” according to People.

Blige is remaining fairly mum about any details surrounding the divorce, but did release a statement addressing the difficult time.

“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 rep told People in a statement. “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,” the statement continued. “She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time.

The pair wed in 2003 and have no children together.
