Mary J. Blige felt alone in her relationship with her estranged husband. The 46-year-old powerhouse filed for a divorce with Martin “Kendu” Isaacs – who is also her manager – last year after 12 years of marriage because she could ‘sense’ her partner didn’t want her anymore, and she was left ‘suffering’ by herself.
Speaking about her romance to radio show host Angie Martinez on Power 105.1, the No More Drama hitmaker said: ‘I can sense that I’m not what you want anymore.’
‘You start to realise that this man doesn’t want you and he’s just gone all the time and you’re by yourself in the relationship. When you realise you’re by yourself and you’re just suffering through it, now it’s time to do some investigating.’
‘When I got the full proof, I didn’t have to investigate it. It just showed up.’
And, although the vocalist is in the midst of finalising the divorce dealings, she has praised her fans for saving her and for helping her get her life back on track.
