Mary J. Blige Confirms Divorce Rumors: “There Is A Divine Plan And A Reason For Everything”
Mary J. Blige isn’t keeping the public guessing after rumors of her impending divorce to husband and longtime manager Martin “Kendu” Isaacs made headlines yesterday (July 28).
A member of the R&B veteran’s camp released a statement to People to confirm the news that Blige’s marriage has run its course after 13 years. “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,” the rep said. “But, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything.” Blige has reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the source of her divorce and has pursued termination of spousal support.
In the midst of finalizing her divorce, the singer is working on an album set to debut later this year and has plans to launch a world tour as well. “She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time,” the statement continued.
No word on if Mary will dish out details of her breakup in her new music, but if it’s in line with her catalogue of hit records, fans may have the opportunity to pull additional insight from the Queen of Hip Hop Soul then.
