The 45-year-old R&B singer appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Nov 16 where she explained how she was able to make it through this trying time in her life.
“What is getting me through is God, prayer, my family, people who love me, my fans,” Blige said. “Me being healthy and loving myself the way I do and taking care of myself. … It’s put me in a place where I can see things clearer.”
During her transparent interview, Blige opened up about what went wrong in the marriage to her manager husband. One of their biggest issues was respect.
“The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over and over again for respect and to be respected. And it just seemed like I was beating a dead horse and it seemed like I was talking to a wall,” Blige said. “I just wasn’t getting it back. So if I can’t get respect in the relationship, then I have to move on and save myself. That was the point where I was like, ‘I’m done. I just can’t do it anymore.'”
While Blige insists she’s “hanging in there,” she also admitted that the ordeal she’s enduring is anything but easy.
