Mary J Blige is still dealing with the emotional side of her split from her husband of 12 years, Kendu Isaacs.
The 45-year-old star , who filed for divorce back in July citing irreconcilable differences, says her “heart is okay” and “I’m hanging in there.”
“No one wants to go through this, and this is hard,” Blige told Robin Roberts on GMA Wednesday. “The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over and over again for respect and to be respected. And it just seemed like I was beating a dead hors. It seemed like I was talking to a wall. I just wasn’t getting it back so if I can’t get respect in the relationship, then I have to move on and save myself.” She added: “That was the point where I was like, ‘I’m done. I just can’t do it anymore.’”
“You have to handle your business. You have to take responsibility and stay on top of it because things like this will happen if you don’t,” she continued. “You need people that will help you, but they can’t do everything for you. You have to be in the mix of it.”
I applaud MJB for realizing her marriage had run its course and having the courage to move on.
