Mary J Blige Dating 30-Year Old Actor, Jason Mitchel Amid Messy Divorce?
According to Verge24, the legendary singer and the Straight Outta Compton star first became friends during the filming of the movie MudBound in May 2016 while she was still married to Kendu Isaacs. Later, the duo were spotted at the Essence Festival in 2016, and are now reportedly official.
This rumour comes just as the singer battles with her estranged husband Kendu in a messy divorce process.
Recall that in July, Mary J Blige filed for the dissolution of their marriage citing irreconcilable differences and weeks later, she filed documents requesting that Kendu be stopped from getting spousal support. And in October, the former manager of the singer filed for a spousal support of $129,319 per month on grounds that he earned her millions when he was her manager.
In November, she told Daily Mail why she filed for the divorce. She said:
“I chose life. At anytime we all go through dark times. You might lose something when you make a positive choice and lose something when you make a negative choice, so for me it’s best to just lose whatever you’re going to lose to get your life back… My fans have saved me too. It’s only when you hear people’s testimonies that ‘you saved my life’ or ‘helped me get out of an abusive relationship’ that you realize going through these hard times makes you stronger.”
Now the 46-year-old is reportedly in a relationship with a much younger man, and while fans wait for official confirmation, Mary decided to poke fun at the story. Here’s what she posted:
