Mary J. Blige Settled Divorce Then Made Oscar History

In 2016, Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her husband/manager, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs. Citing “irreconcilable differences” and “overwhelming disrespect,” the 47-year-old songstress publicly split from her spouse nearly 13 years. While breaking up is hard to do, as they say, Mary upheld a strong demeanor. Though, she repeatedly vowed to never get married again.

“When I love you, I love you. I loved him,” she said on Power 105.1 in 2017. “When I love you, I give like, way too much, like, ‘Here, just take everything.’ But I will never do that again.”

Now, several headlines and court battles later, the divorce is finalized.
