There’s no doubt that Mary J. Blige is a legend. We’ve watched her grow up, we’ve watched her become a star, we’ve watched fight through her demons–and we’ve been with her every single step of the way. We’ve laughed and we’ve cried with MJB–even when she told us she wasn’t going to –and we’ve cheered for her. Now, as Blige prepares for a new musical offering, we’ll join her on a new chapter in her life: divorce.

After sixteen years of marriage to Kendu Issacs, the pair called it quits last year. What happened exactly? We still don’t know, but apparently, we’re about to find out.

Today on Power 105.1’s The Angie Martinez Show, the undisputed Queen of Hip-hop Soul will reveal some exclusive new details about what was really going down behind the scenes in her marriage, including why she decided to go on tour in the middle of the drama:

“I needed that. I needed to be somewhere other than home thinking about all of this foolish. I needed to be some where I could vent and express myself and use my own music as therapy. I needed that love.”

Check out the candid interview between Mary and Angie Ma below.

And be sure to tune in to The Angie Martinez Show from 2-6pm ET (the interview will air around 4pm) on Power 105.1 and iHeartRadio.
