According to Blige's Publicist, Karynne Tencer, stated that sometimes marriages don't go as planned but there is a divine plan for everyone.
"Ms. Blige is saddened to say 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," Tencer said.
"Mary 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," Tencer said.
The couple did not have children together, but Blige was a stepmother to Isaac's children from previous relationships.
