If you’ve been watching their hit show on WE Tv, or just reading CNikky you may be aware that the Gospel duo Mary Mary have been experiencing creative differences for some time. They have not appeared at an event together in quite some time and this past weekend, neither of them attended the NAACP Image Awards, their sister Goo went in their place. Therefore, it’s easy to assume that the duo has gone their separate ways. Now, Erica Campbell is finally speaking up about what’s really going on.
*The Campbell sisters a/k/a Mary Mary are finally clearing the air about their rumored break up.
For months now, we’ve been anticipating solo pursuits for the ladies. But it’s not a break up, the ladies clarified. It’s just a break.
“I will say this, we are not breaking up,” Erica Atkins-Campbell told Essence.com. “But we’re taking a break. I’m going to do some solo music. Tina’s going to vacation and travel the world. We’ve been joined at the hip the last 12 years and I think in order for us both to be our healthiest selves, just as women, in the group, [we will] take some time to think and re-assess. We’ve been going constantly year after year, baby after baby, tour after tour and now season after season on TV.”
Their schedules have become so overwhelming and busy that the two can’t seem to find time to work together anymore.
But more importantly, Erica highlighted that during their hiatus, it’s going to serve as time to reconnect with God.
Do whatever you have to ladies, because sanity, peace of mind and happiness is the most important thing. We love you and support you through whatever!
