Lack of Respect Ended Mary J. Blige's Marriage


Earlier this year R&B singer Mary J. Blige shocked her fans after filing for divorce from manager Kendu Isaacs after 12 years of marriage [click here if you missed that].

Mary opens up about her breaking point...

MJB tells Robin Roberts on Good Morning America,
“The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over again for respect, and to be respected, and it just seemed like I was beating a dead horse and it seemed like I was talking to a wallI just wasn’t getting it (respect) back."
“So if I can’t get respect in the relationship, I have to move on to save myself. That was the point where I was like, ‘I’m done, I just can’t do it anymore.’”

time for a new look Mary, the blonde is cute and it looks good on you but don't u want to mix it up? do something new? you don't have to get any of those wild color's but a change would be nice, i mean reinvent yourself, change it up a little, you know change it up, then after a while go back to the blonde hair, I'm not saying its ugly it's not but, we'd like to see a change something different, spice it up a little

@ 8:53 go tell that to your wife.

Mary does not know or owe you. She looks good and rocking the look.

I agree with both posters-lol. Loved her look in the "my everything" video. Anyway I. Hope Mary continues to stay strong and celebrate the fact that this creep is out of her life!

Damn 8:58, why so personal? Mary, is that you. If it is, I love you but it would be great if you updated your look. It's very Downtown Yonkers/"Fordham Rd. beauty supply wig" when you're a well traveled, accomplished woman.

It's like Mary has stagnated with Kendu and a fresh look would probably make you feel better. Dump all over the top 2010 mess. You and your sister should check into the Ritz Carlton in Westchester, have a personal shopper send a selection from Neiman Marcus in White Plains, pop a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and have fun!

We're all rooting for you!

10:42 She was already doing that - She got the respect she gave

Looks aside, I hope Mary would hire high power attorneys Shawn Holley (who rep Lindsey Lohan) or Laura Wasserman (who rep Kim K and other high profile Hollywood clients) and rip Kendu a new one because there is no way this negro deserves 130k a month in spousal support. I believe there is a pre-nup, so I'm not sure why he's trying to contest it, but then again, it just goes to show he was in it for the money all along.

OAN: I wish Mary would practice on her interviewing skills because I know she has a lot to share and say, she just needs help getting her point across on camera. Hell if Russell Simmons can do it she can. I remember when Russ couldn't string two sentences along in an interview back in the day.

I love Mary but I don't like that Cousin Oliver from the Brady Bunch hairstyle she's rocking.

Good for her, she tried to hell & back but he thought she needed his leaching behind more than she actually did. Mary good to see you in good frame of mind with all the stress this situation brown brings.

unpopular statement around these parts, but there is no other way to put it other than Mary is a bitch! I worked with her on her Breakthrough Experience Tour, and she was impossible. There was just no pleasing that woman EVER. Her tech rider was absolutely ridiculous, so much so to where she said the hotel she says in, there cannot be any construction of any kind within a 3 mile radius of her suite (bich whet??) and housekeeping could not vacuum the hallway, none of her staffs rooms could be on the same floor as her majesty, the hotel could not do any redecorating of any kind while her highness graced their establishment, and if any of her litany of rules were not granted, she would relocate to another hotel at the original hotels expense. she runs staff around like headless chickens and don't tip them a gatdamn thing. so if she ran her marriage anything like "Mrs. Jefferson" does (yea, her check in name is "Mrs. Jefferson" and orders staff to refer to her as such, then yea that marriage must have been a living hell. She's not telling the full story of what she did wrong in the relationship AT ALL!!

There is no such thing as "respecting" Mrs. Jefferson. It's an impossible request; at least when I worked with her it was and I doubt much of anything has changed with her.

Sorry yall but ya girl Mrs. Jefferson can be a hot ass mess!

@Laa Soul. I'm with you 1000% about the interviewing skills. I use to drop everything I was doing to watch and hear Mary. But around 5-6 yrs ago I said I'm done with watching her interview because they are all the same. She wears her emotion on her face. I ALWAYS said that lady is not
Happy no matter how much she says she's been healed. She's just not there yet. Some don't believe it... But people
Like her and Halle Berry I believe are meant to be single. Everyone ain't built for a relationship.

@12:40pm. I totally believe what you're saying and am not surprised to hear about the diva antics. Let's just hope that with her new team, they will help her with her interviewing skills and an attitude adjustment because we all know R&B singers are a dime a dozen. Just because Mary has longevity doesn't mean she can't get dropped from her record label or loose fans too.

I believe she is exactly the way 12:40 said..
