Mary J. Blige Opens Up About Mental Health and Divorce Mary J. Blige was a guest on Taraji P. Henson’s Facebook Watch show, Peace of Mind. Mary opened up about her divorce that played out publicly for two years as well as her mental health. She shared that as a single woman, the holidays are hard. She said, I just gotta thug this out until something excellent comes along. Mary said she plans to be patient and love on herself, I’d rather be by myself than to keep making the same mistakes over and over again. But don’t worry, Mary is still open to love. If you could fix Mary J. Blige up on a blind date, who would you set her up with?
