Mary J. Blige is ending her marriage.

The R&B star filed for separation from her husband and manager Martin "Kendu" Isaacs in Los Angeles on Tuesday, citing "irreconcilable differences," according to court documents obtained by ET.

In the documents, Blige also seeks to block her ex from receiving spousal support. The couple married in 2003 and have no children together.

The singer's rep told ET in a statement, "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."

"Mary will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year, along with her world tour," the rep added. "She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult, emotional time."

Blige, who appeared in NBC's live production of The Wiz in December 2015, announced this past June that she's mostly finished working on her upcoming album, on which she collaborates with Kanye West.
