Mary J. Blige opened up about her split from her estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs. During a radio interview, when asked what made her call it quits, she explained,
“(The) overwhelming disrespect. Disrespect, you’re too familiar. You’re way too familiar and you’re disrespecting me and I know, I can sense that I’m not what you want anymore. Because now you start throwing questions around like, ‘Why you don’t cook?’ I haven’t been cooking. ‘Why you don’t wear your hair like this?’ I never wore my hair like this before, what’s up with you? So, you start to realize that this man doesn’t want you and he’s just gone all the time.”
Then she went on to say,
“And you’re by yourself in the relationship. When you realize you’re just by yourself in the relationship and you’re just suffering through it. Now it’s time to do some investigating. And I was getting things here and there, but I didn’t have no full proof. But when I got the full proof, I didn’t have to investigate it, it just showed up.”
Mary and Kendu got married back in 2003. She filed for divorced last July.
Mary just unveiled the tracklist for her upcoming album, Strength of a Woman. The 14-track album contains features from Kanye West, Quavo, DJ Khaled, Missy Elliott and more. The album drops on April 28th.
