Mary J Blige's producer pal BRYAN MICHAEL COX has defended the R+B star amid reports she is on the verge of splitting from her husband Kendu Isaacs. The Family Affair singer has publicly heaped praise on Isaacs for helping her turn her back on alcoholism and drug abuse, discover God and revamp her flagging career, which is why many fans were shocked when split rumours stirred last month (OCT06). But Cox, who has been working on new tracks for Blige's upcoming hits album, REFLECTIONS, insists the internet reports are false and his pal and Isaacs have never been more in love. He says, "It's wild. I was just with them a few weeks ago, and we were all laughing about it. "When the rumour got to them, they were on vacation together. They took off after the tour. "When I heard it, I called immediately, and (Isaacs) was like, 'Man, it's all tabloid.' That showed how the media can make up things and throw it out there. They have such a great thing going on, people really gotta know what they got is the real deal."
