Mary J Blige divorcing husband-manager of 13 years


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

Los Angeles court records show the Family Affair singer filed for divorce from Martin "Kendu" Isaacs on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences. No additional details for the break-up were included.

She and Isaacs were married in December 2003 and have no children together. She has won nine Grammy Awards, including for her albums Growing Pains and The Breakthrough.

The singer is asking a court to deny him spousal support.

A representative for Mary said the singer was saddened by the end of her marriage but would continue working on new music for an album due to be released later this year.

The divorce was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
