R&B singer and Academy Award nominee Mary J. Blige is officially back in the game! Her divorce from her former music manager Kendu Isaacs is official after a judge signed off on their final deal Wednesday.
Boy, are we happy there’s no more drama! Blige and Isaacs separated July 2016, after 13 years of marriage. In this highly contentious divorce, they’ve been back and forth since last summer when she was ordered to pay her former husband $30,000 a month in spousal support. Yes, $30,000 A MONTH to a man she accused of cheating on her!
And, get this, since October 2017, Isaacs has been petitioning the court to get EVEN MORE money. He wanted $65,000 a month saying he was ‘destitute’ and unable to find work. He went on to say, Blige’s new album Strength of A Woman and recent tracks ‘Love Yourself’ and ‘Set Me Free’ further inflicted damage on his career. His request….DENIED!
Although, according to TMZ, their final divorce agreement is confidential. We know it came down to money and ironing out who gets what marital assets, including their recently foreclosed New Jersey homes (where they owed the bank $9.1M).
Mary J. Blige, we wish you nothing but billboard hits on this new album and more awards and accolades for your lead role in the new thriller Body Cam.
