Mary J. Blige has been dealing with a mountain of drama lately and the biggest of it all is the recent news that she’s decided to file for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Kendu Isaacs. Ever since news of their split hit the web in July, fans have been in shock and speculating on why the once loving couple decided to call it quits. Recently, rumors began swirling that things fell apart because of a torrid affair between Isaacs and noted industry vixen Karrine Steffans. But are the rumors true? Well, Steffans recently opened up about the rumors.
According to Funky Dineva, sources close to Steffans claim that Isaacs was sleeping with the woman known as “Superhead” and that Blige knew of her soon-to-be ex-husband’s affair. The source claims that Blige would call Steffans’ place looking for her husband and that Blige and Steffans once had an icy exchange at an industry party when Steffans tried to pretend the affair wasn’t happening and approached Blige.
The blogger claims that a source close to Blige also claimed that the rumor is true, but asserted that Isaac’s alleged slept with other women, as well. The Source also allegedly claimed that Isaac’s infidelity was not the main reason for the famous couple’s split.
Well, once Steffans got wind of the rumors, she quickly went on Instagram and denied that she ever had a sexual relationship with Isaacs.
“Here I am, at Trader Joe’s, buying organic fruits and vegetables for my family, when I get a slew of interview requests because of yet another false accusation. The truth is that most of what urban blogs post about me is 100% made up. These false reports add to the disparaging views people have of me and usually, I’m content to let people think what they want. Today, however, is not one of those days. I live a simple life. I’m not out and about. I’m never at the party. There are no photos of videos circulating of me doing much of anything and that’s because I don’t do much. I stay home, I take care of my family, and I run my businesses quietly. My life is drama free. I am happy, healthy, and whole. But, I guess that’s what irritates people the most. I don’t know why I’m a target. I don’t know why people pick on me. I’m not sure why people aren’t content to just leave me alone. I try my best to be a positive force, to share my experiences in an attempt to help those going through much of what I have experienced. I’ve built a brand that is dedicated to help and education. I volunteer my time. I lecture at universities around the country, sometimes for free. I give and I give and when I’m tired, I give some more. What have I done that’s so bad that I have to be continuously demeaned and undermined? I pay my taxes. I don’t do drugs. I’m not out here getting arrested or fighting with anyone. Even in my pain, I do my very best to be a light. These blogs don’t cover any of that though. Of course not. They’d rather make you think I’m a horrible person. They’d rather try to break me and hurt my family. And this is why I stay to myself. No, I have never had an inappropriate relationship with Kendu Isaacs. No, he has never cheated on his wife with me. Yes, we are friends and have been for 10 years. Naturally, when his friends heard about his marital troubles, we all rallied around him to show support. Divorce is painful. I’ve been through three marriages and I understand the gut wrenching agony the end of a marriage causes. I sincerely wish Kendu and Ms. Blige peace and love, no matter the outcome, and I would appreciate not being dragged into the gossip. Thanks,” Steffans wrote.
