The singer, 45, filed court papers on Tuesday, July 26th, citing her reasoning as irreconcilable differences. According to TMZ, Mary requested no spousal support for Kendu and listed the separation date as ‘To Be Determined.’
Confirming the split and keeping things classy, Mary issued a statement via US Weekly to express her heartache and to show love to her fans for all their unconditional support.
The statement reads:
“Ms. Blige is saddened to say [that] it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would… but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything. Mary will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time.”
We all know break-ups can be tough, but divorcing your spouse is much worse. Getting over the pain of it all takes a while for most, but it looks like Mary will be coping through music. With all the madness going on, she confirmed that she has a new album in the works. So for all of our Mary fans out there, get ready. This one is going to be good.
