- Two years ago, Mary J Blige's marriage ended up in a divorce
- She divorced a man she had shared her home with for 13 years
- Now, four years after officially splitting up with Kendu Isaacs, the 49-year-old admits singlehood can be difficult
- She promised to take her time so she can avoid repeating her mistakes
American singer Mary J Blige has finally spoken out on her love life two years after going through a divorce.
The musician admitted she sometimes gets lonely and sad but she is determined to hold on till the right man comes along.
The Grammy winner told actress Taraji P Henson she learnt a lot and grew so much after parting ways with her ex Kendu Isaacs.
The songbird accused her former partner of trying to blackmail her into coughing up financial settlements by dragging out their divorce for years.
Mary and Kendu split up in 2016 but they did not finalise their divorce till 2018.
At some point, Mary’s ex got hospitalised and claimed the stress from the breakup was affecting his health.
“I don't know when that's going to happen. But, I would rather be myself than to keep making the same mistakes over and over again. I am going to be patient and sift through this thing and love on me right now,” the 49-yar-old said about her plans to date.
Mary shocked her fans and others by her revelation of the real reasons behind her past drug addiction.
She came forward and open about her private struggle with drugs and alcohol addiction, coupled with depression, to Los Angeles confidential.
Mary told the story of how she'd been abused as a child and although that had occurred once, it had only been just another building block - coupled with other dark moments she had had to face - in the foundation that led to her troubled adulthood.
