No more (marriage) drama for Mary J. Blige: According to TMZ, the R&B singer filed for divorce from manager-husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs on Thursday.

According to court docs, the Grammy Award-winning artist cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split from Isaacs, her husband of 12 years. The couple have no children together and Blige has reportedly asked the court to reject any requests for spousal support.

On the same day, the 45-year-old songstress deleted all photos on her Instagram

In November 2014, Blige opened up about Isaacs in an interview with The Telegraph and explained why friendships with the opposite sex were strictly off limits in their marriage. 

“All females for me, all guys for him,” the 45-year-old revealed. “There’s none of that, ‘Oh, that’s my female friend. Oh, that’s my guy friend.’ No. Not in a marriage, I’ve never seen that work.”
