Mary J. Blige’s music has always resonated with her fans because she puts her real life love issues to song. And once word got out about her divorce from Kendu Isaacs, everyone knew nothing would change.
Blige is currently on tour in Europe and is hitting back at Isaacs’ request for spousal support, even though he made $46,000 a month as her manager.
According to the Daily Mail, Isaacs says Blige “opens her show by displaying various images of tabloids pertaining to this dissolution in an attempt to paint herself as the victim and Mr. Isaacs as the villain.”
Well typically, when you’re a cheater, what else would you call yourself?
But Blige isn’t backing down when it comes to her music, and her newest song is in part about her pending divorce.
“I’ve been speaking to my fans like this since 1994,” Blige said about her song “Thick Of It” to UK talk show Loose Women. “We created a relationship through all my trials and them having trials as well and us getting through it. So the song is basically about where I am right now. I’m in the thick of it. I’m in the middle of a divorce that’s everywhere. It’s just how hard life is. It’s the pain. It’s the lawyers. It’s the this. It’s the that. It’s not even knowing someone that you thought you knew for years. It’s horrible. But there’s hope in it as well. I have to keep the joy so I can live and survive. I can’t just die in the sadness. This is why I’m here — because I kept my joy in spite of my pain and crying and releasing everything on stage to my fans and us healing together. I kept my joy.”
Girl, and keep that money too!
