Mary J. Blige’s divorce is getting messier by the second. As the trial date approaches, more details about the R&B singer’s finances are coming to light, and they aren’t looking good.
Blige filed for divorce back in July 2016 due to irreconcilable differences, and ever since, her ex husband Kendu Isaacs has been coming for every dime he can get from her. The nine-time Grammy winner is already paying spousal support to Isaacs, but he’s now in pursuit of a fat alimony check. Unfortunately for him, Blige’s recent role in Mudbound won’t serve as much leverage.
Divorce documents have reportedly revealed that her role that landed Oscar nominations for “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Original Song” made her no money! Allegedly the artist who was just honored with a Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star in January, LOST money due to all of her expenses.
An excerpt from the court documents obtained by The Blast reads, “The film Mudbound, for example, has produced no net income for Petitioner, but has garnered her critical acclaim and award nominations. Pursuant to the Mudbound contract, the expenses Petitioner was required to pay in connection with filming Mudbound were greater than her salary.”
Additionally the documents state that while Blige and Isaacs were together, they went $12 million into debt that she’s allegedly had to pay off herself, which is why her recent work has netted little income.
We hope things turn around for her! Blige will be performing at 90th Academy Awards on March 4, and the divorce trial is scheduled to begin later this month.
