It looks like it won't be a family affair for much longer.
Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her manager and husband of 12 years, Martin (Kendu) Isaacs, according to court documents obtained by the Daily News.
The Bronx-born artist cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce and is asking that Isaacs not be allowed any type of spousal support, according to the documents.
The date of separation is listed as "to be determined."
"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," the singer's rep said in a statement to The News.
"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," the rep said.
It is unclear if the couple, who don't have any children together, had a pre-nuptial agreement.
Blige brought on attorney Gary Fishbein to assist in her the divorce case. Fishbein previously repped Ryan Phillippe in his divorce from Reese Witherspoon and also represented Halle Berry's ex Gabriel Aubry in the couple's child custody battle.
The "Family Affair" singer married Isaacs back in 2003 at her home in Bergen County, New Jersey.
Blige and Isaacs made headlines in 2013 when they were hit with a $3.4 million tax lien by the state of N.J. Her hubby got defensive on Twitter noting that he and his wife are fine following the news.
The R&B superstar — often referred to as the "Queen of hip-hop soul" — got her start back in 1989 with jams like "No More Drama" and "Real Love" topping the charts. As of 2013, she had sold more than 50 million albums and won nine Grammy Awards.
Mary be like ….
