According to TMZ, R&B singer Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from manager-husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs on Thursday.

Court documents said 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, Mary J. 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.”

In a statement released by her representative, the singer said: “Ms. Blige is saddened to say [that] it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would… but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything. Mary J. Blige will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time.”
