Mary J. Blige is getting divorced.
The singer filed to divorce husband Martin "Kendu" Isaacs on Thursday, E! News confirms. According to court documents, Blige cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce. (TMZ was first to report news of the split.)
Her rep told E! News, "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. Mary will continue writing & 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."
Blige and Isaacs, who was her manager, married in 2003. She opened up about the relationship in a 2014 interview with the U.K.'s Telegraph, saying, ""He always has my back–he's going to fight to the death for Mary J Blige. The downside is that there's no separation–it's on all the time. When you don't feel like answering to your manager, he's still your husband."
