Music legend Mary J. Blige was ordered by a judge to pay her ex-husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs $30,000 per month in spousal support.
Mary J. Blige is not too happy right now although a judge ordered her to pay significantly less in spousal support than what her ex-husband and ex-manager Kendu originally asked for. The payment is only temporary and she will have to pay him retroactive back to September of last year and his lawyer fees which amounts to $235,000.
The “No More Drama” singer filed for divorce in July 2016 citing the usual irreconcilable differences. Multiple sources say Isaacs has cheating on the R&B singer several times throughout their 13-year marriage. In her court docs, Mary J. Blige argued that the couple has a iron clad prenup that negate any form of spousal support. Kendu rejected the claim and asked a judge to award him a whopping $129,319 per month to support the lifestyle that he has grown accustom to.
“My success as an entertainer has nothing to do with [Isaacs],” Mary J. Blige said (via E! News). “I was successful when I met him and have continued to enjoy success, although there have certainly been ups and downs. [Isaacs] suggests we lived a lavish lifestyle and in fact, we overspent and we are in significant debt. We owe millions of dollars in taxes and have significant advances that have to be recouped by record companies.”
