Mary J. Blige files for divorce from hus­band of 13 years

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Mary J. Blige is end­ing her mar­riage to her hus­band-man­ager af­ter nearly 13 years.

Court records show the “Fam­ily Af­fair” singer filed for divorce from Martin “Kendu” Isaacs on Tues­day in Los An­ge­les, cit­ing ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences.

No ad­di­tional de­tails about the breakup were in­cluded in the fil­ing.

Blige and Isaacs were mar­ried in De­cem­ber 2003 and have no chil­dren to­gether. The ac­tress-singer has won nine Grammy Awards, in­clud­ing for her al­bums “Grow­ing Pains” and “The Break­through.”

She is ask­ing a court to deny Isaacs spousal sup­port.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the singer said Blige is sad­dened by the end of her mar­riage but will con­tinue work­ing on new mu­sic for an album slated to be re­leased later this year.
