Mary J. Blige finally speaks out about her unexpected DIVORCE

On Tuesday of this week, Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her husband Kendu Isaacs, after 12 years of marriage.

Mary met Kendu in 2000, while he was producing a song for Queen Latifah, that featured Mary J.

The Real Love singer wed Kendu in 2003 and had no children, however he has three children from a previous relationship. 

According to the court documents, the soulful artist and her former music manager separated as a result of "irreconcilable differences."

A representative for Mary J. released the following statement: 

"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. But, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything."

The spokesperson went on to tell People that, "Mary will continue writing and working on her album which is due out later this year along with her world tour."

"She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time." 

Mary has reportedly asked to terminate the divorce court's ability to award spousal support to Kendu.
