It is shocking when a person decides to break a marriage and it is even a big shocker when it is a marriage of more than 12 years.  Singer Mary J. Blige also surprised us with her decision of departing with her manager husband Kendu Isaacs.

Recently on July 26, 2016, Blige filed divorce aginst her husband Kendu. Not every marriage ends with a happy ending and It seems the couple was not meant to be together forever. According to TMZ, R&B singer Blige cited opposed distinctions and listed the date of being apart as “to be determined”. She has also requested to end the court's ability to award spousal support to Isaacs.

Talking about the children, the couple has no children together but Isaacs is a father of three children from his previous relationship.

A representative of Blige released a statement about the divorce that Ms. Blige was very unhappy to announce that she has filed divorce for her husband.  In spite of divorce, it is not going to harm her work and she would be continuing her work on the album. She is very thankful and has appreciated the support and love of her fans during this emotional period of her.

Blige has previously said Wendy Williams on her show in 2012-

"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.'"

"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."

Reasons for the divorce of Mary J. Blige and Kendu Isaacs

The relation is not always happy inside as much happier as it looks outside. The same was going on between the former couple Blige and Isaacs. Here are the 5 reasons why the couple divorced:

  1. Blige whose net worth is $ 10 million does not want Isaacs to get any spousal support.
  2. Blige never wanted Isaacs to have female friends and she even makes sure that she does have female friends only.
  3. They had a loan of $ 2.2 million and faced the financial problem
  4. It was rumored that Isaacs was cheating on Blige with singer Starshell because of which Blige started drinking again.
  5. Isaac daughter from previous marriage claimed that she was homeless but actually she was not, her message was taken out of context.

It is a hard situation for both Isaacs and Blige but we are pretty sure that the couple would be moving on with a better future ahead.
