Mary J. Blige On Split From Kendu Isaacs

It’s no secret — divorce isn’t fun. Just ask Mary J. Blige who is engulfed in what appears to be a messy divorce from her husband Kendu Isaacs of 13 years. In a recent interview, the singer says,

I’m in the thick of it. I’m in the middle of a divorce that’s everywhere (in the news). It’s just how hard life is. It’s the pain, it’s the lawyers, it’s the ‘this,’ it’s the ‘that…’Not even knowing someone that you thought you knew for years is horrible.

However, Blige says that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

There’s hope in it as well, because I have to keep the joy so I can live and survive. I can’t just die with all the sadness, that’s why I’m here because I kept my joy. In spite of my pain and crying and releasing everything onstage to my fans and us healing together, I kept my joy.
