The Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige sat down with Robin Roberts on this morning’s episode of ‘Good Morning America’ to discuss her pending divorce from husband/manager Kendu Issacs
“My heart is OK. I’m hanging in there,” said Mary. “No one wants to go through this. This is hard. I’m hanging in there.”
We got some insight into what exactly caused the breakdown of the marriage.
“The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over and over again for respect and to be respected and it just seems like I was beating a dead horse and it seems like I was talking to a wall,” said Mary. “I just wasn’t getting it back. If I can’t get respect in the relationship, then I have to move on to save myself. That was the point where I’m like, I’m done. I just can’t do it any more.”
Respect is key in any relationship and it’s clear that Mary wasn’t getting that in her marriage and she decided it was time to end it. It’s amazing to see her strength during this rough time. The title of the new album is, ‘Strength of a Woman’. The album is should be released before year’s end. Mary is currently on tour with Maxwell for the ‘King & Queen’ Tour which I will be attending!
