Mary J. Blige Talks Divorce, Kanye, The Lox, & Issues w/ Faith Evans On HOT 97

Mary is back! She recently announced that she would be coming out with another album titled Strength of a Woman the follow-up to her 2014 LP The London Sessions.

Since then she released two singles reflecting the divorce from her husband of 12 years, “Thick of It” and “U + Me (Love Lesson)” and covered Bruce Springsteen’s “American Skin” with Kendrick Lamar.

She recently talked to Funkmaster Flex and Power 105’s Angie Martinez about her divorce, and he didn’t hold back! She goes in on how her estranged husband changed within the marriage and became an opportunist to fund his affair.

“I’m still in it,” Mary told Angie. “It’s just getting worse. It really is not getting better. It’s just more bullshit, more nonsense, more lies, more denial, more stupidity… It’s because of what’s happening in court. This is why everything is bad. He has the power to make it all go away, if he stopped demanding what he’s demanding. That’s not fair to me because he doesn’t deserve what he’s demanding. Why do I have to pay you? Why do you think you deserve this amount of money? Why do you think you deserve any money? You didn’t make me. You’re not God. I have to pay you for being my husband and for being my manager? You say you helped me. Yeah, you helped, but you didn’t build this career. I was Mary J. Blige before I met you. That’s not fair of you. This is a sickness.”

She also talks about her upcoming Kanye collab on the album, gives advice to women dealing with her situation and more.

Strength of a Woman is set to drop April 28th.
