Mary J Blige is reportedly filing for divorce from her Husband/Manager Martin “Kendu” Isaacs who she married back in 2003. Although they both don’t have any kid together and Blige has also asked a judge to block Isaacs from requesting or obtaining spousal support after the divorce.
In 2014, Blige talked about the challenges of dating her manager during an interview with Stella Magazine and she said the following
“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. If one of you doesn’t want to talk about something right now, you have to respect that. And you have to respect each other’s space.”
Blige also famously banned Isaacs from having friendships with other women.
“All females for me, all guys for him. There’s none of that, ‘Oh, that’s my female friend. Oh, that’s my guy friend.’ No. Not in a marriage, I’ve never seen that work.”
