Divorce can be one of the most painful things a man or woman can go through in their lives.
Such a rupture can be even more painful when children are involved between two adults who have collectively decided to end their marriage. Over the past year, singer and actress Mary J. Blige (pictured) went through a very public and turbulent divorce from her ex-husband and former business manager Kendu Issacs.
The ordeal was very demoralizing for Blige who said in a media interview that at one point during the divorce she “felt like nothing.” That is very sad because a wonderful and accomplished woman like Blige has no reason at all to feel worthless.
None of us are perfect. But we all have the ability to find meaning using our gifts in life.
Blige is still doing that. Her most recent album “Strength of a Woman” is another extraordinary addition to her unparalleled musical body of work. She just scored an Oscar nomination for her riveting performance as an actress in “Mudbound.” Blige also gave an amazing performance at this year’s Oscar award show.
However, right before Oscar night this year, Blige settled her nagging post-marital feud with Issacs ahead of a court date, which was scheduled for some time this week. The settlement details were not made public and the situation was handled privately and peacefully, according to People Magazine.
Below, watch a recent video of Blige and her celebrity homegirls kicking it at actress Alfre Woodard’s Oscar Sisters party.
