Mary J. Blige was searching for “Real Love” and we knew she found it when she married, husband/manager Kendu Isaacs 12 years ago. Today, we learned the queen of hip-hop soul has filed for divorce. The R&B singer, 45, filed court documents on Tuesday, July 26. According to TMZ, they have “irreconcilable differences.”
This past February, Blige appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” and denied they were breaking up. “My marriage is not on the rocks, but I would be a liar and my fans would hate me if I said to them, ‘Oh, we’re perfect and everything is great,’” she told Wendy Williams.
“We have situations just like everyone else. We’re not out in public trying to kill each other, but it’s real. We love each other.”
They couple married on December 7, 2003 in New Jersey at her Bergen County home during a small ceremony with 50 guests in attendance. The nuptials were officiated by Dr. Frederick K.C. Price.
