Mary J. Blige has opened up about moving on from her divorce. The star and her ex-husband, Kendu Isaacs, split after 13 years of marriage in 2016 resulting in a two-year-long bitter divorce. In a recent interview with People Magazine, the star revealed that going through a divorce taught her the importance of being happy on her own.

She said in part: “I think I turned that corner when I got my divorce. I think that I realized that no matter what comes to me, no matter how big or bad it is, I have to keep moving, I have to keep living. I said, ‘No, I’m not going to stay in this marriage. I’m out of here.’ That’s what thriving is about.”
She continued: “I’m very content, and I’m happy with myself. I learned to be happy with just Mary, just enjoying my own company, me by myself most of the time. I’m grateful.”
She also shared the advice she’d give her younger saying: “If I could tell my younger self something, I would tell her don’t be afraid of your imperfections, because one day people are going to love you for them.”
