Mary J. Blige to Pay Estranged Husband Spousal Support
At her most recent divorce hearing, singer Mary J. Blige was ordered by a judge to pay her estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs, $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support. The bright side, if you can imagine there is one, is that the figure is significantly less than the $130,000 a month Isaacs was originally asking for.
According to published reports, the courts found Isaacs was indeed entitled to money to sustain the standard of living he enjoyed while married to Mary, but also derided his dream number as “unreasonable.”
In previously filed court documents, Mary accused Isaacs of infidelity and of spending exorbitant amounts of money on travel and gifts for his various girlfriends.
Blige recently shared her frustrations with her divorce proceeding in an interview with radio host Angie Martinez. “You know, he has the power to make it all go away, if he just would stop demanding what he’s demanding,” Mary shared. “And that’s not fair to me because he doesn’t deserve what he’s demanding. It’s not fair. Why do I have to pay you? And why do you think you deserve this amount of money? Why do you think you deserve any money? You didn’t make me. You’re not God. So I have to pay you for being my husband and for being my manager?”
The pair are expected to return to court for another hearing in September.
