Mary J. Blige Releases Statement On Her Divorce

Mary J. Blige has released a statement through her rep confirming she did indeed file for divorce to end her 12-year marriage to her husband and manager, Kendu Issacs.

The Queen of Hip Hop/Soul cited irreconcilable differences for the demise of her union and in her statement she said, “sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would.”

Read the statement below:

Ms. Blige is saddened to say [that] 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 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.

Since the news of her divorce broke, Mary has completely scrubbed her Instagram page.
