Mary J. Blige has filed for divorce from her manager husband Kendu Isaacs after 12 years of marriage, PEOPLE confirms.

According to court documents filed on Tuesday, Blige cited irreconcilable differences as grounds for divorce and has asked to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to Isaacs.

A date of separation is still “to be determined,” according to the documents (which were first obtained by TMZ).

While the couple have no children together, Blige, 45, has been a stepmother to Kendu’s children – Briana, Jordan and Nas – from a former relationship since they wed in 2003.

“My marriage is not on the rocks, but I would be a liar and my fans would hate me if I said to them, ‘Oh, we’re perfect and everything is great,'” she told Wendy Williams on her show in 2012. “We have situations just like everyone else. We’re not out in public trying to kill each other, but it’s real. We love each other.”

Four years after they got married, Blige told Parade Isaacs changed “everything” for her.

“He was the first person to ever challenge what I did: ‘Why are you drinking? Why do you hate yourself? You don’t need to be around people who tear you down. You’re beautiful, Mary.’ He was the first man to ever tell me that,” she told the magazine.

Reps for Blige and Isaacs could not be immediately reached for comment.
