ABC/Randy HolmesAs Mary J. Blige celebrates the 25th anniversary of her triple-platinum My Life album, Diddy is now developing a documentary about her life and career.
The untitled project is being produced by Amazon Studios and Entertainment One.
“We all know Mary J. Blige as the two-time Oscar nominee, Grammy Award winning, multi-hyphenate who has sold over 80 million records. But through this documentary, audiences will see a raw and honest side of Mary J. Blige opening up about her personal journey of redemption and healing,” Matt Newman of Amazon Studios, said in a statement, according to Billboard.
The nine-time Grammy winner began her career in 1992 recording with Diddy, and he was the executive producer of My Life, which marked its 25th anniversary last week.
“It’s a blessing to have been a part of history,” Diddy commented on Instagram with a throwback photo of them working in a recording studio. “MY LIFE is one of the best projects I’ve ever been involved in.”
Mary wrote, “25 years ago this album was released and I didn’t know what it would do or how successful it would be. I was in so much pain and was ready to check out and I know I needed to say these things to get them off my chest.”
“I released this album to the world and it opened the doors to people who were in pain just like me. It touched so many people lives in the world and it gave me confirmation that I wasn’t alone and we had to fight for our lives,” she continued.
Mary admitted in the past she was sexually abused as a child, and as a adult, she overcame drug addiction. Last year, she divorced he former manager, Kendu Isaacs, after 14 years of marriage.
