The chemistry might have been crazy from the get-go, but the love affair Mary J Blige had with her Saddle River, New Jersey manor seems to have fizzled. Though Mary has recently signed on to star alongside Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin in the big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Rock of Ages, the songstress is looking to sign off as owner to the 4.2 acre estate she purchased in 2008.Â
The 18,225 square-foot home features 8 bedrooms, 8 full baths, 3 partial baths, a colossal gourmet kitchen, wine tasting room, and fitness center. And it doesnâ€™t stop there! The home also includes a movie theater with enough seats for you and 13 of your friends, and an indoor basketball court. Oh yeah, and thereâ€™s an elevator to get you from floor to floor once youâ€™ve tired yourself out from all that movie watching, and basketball playing. And if you want to take a day off from practicing your skills on the court, you can always swim laps in the massive swimming pool, or just soak up some sun by the cabana. Maybe all that luxury living was just too much drama for the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. Â
