And so it begins. Mary J. Blige’s ex-husband is now reportedly demanding spousal support– to the tune of over $129,000 a month.
TMZ reports that Blige’s ex, Kendu Isaacs, wants $129,319 per month according to recently filed court documents. He says that Blige was the bread winner during their 12 year marriage and he should basically be allowed to continue the lifestyle he’s grown accustomed to during their marriage. He says that Blige earned between $1.5 million and $5.1 million over the past two years.
Blige has an album that’s about to drop and is also tour, and because she fired Isaacs as her manager shortly after she filed for divorce, her ex-husband now says he has no income. Apparently, there was a prenup but Isaacs says it’s no good since he signed it without a lawyer. Reportedly, Blige believes the prenup isn’t legitimate because she’s already wrote two checks for Isaacs totaling $85,000.
Meanwhile, Blige remains focused on her music. Earlier this month, she premiered a new song at her concert in at The Grand Theater at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn., called “Thick of It,” which seems to be about her divorce.
“Love ain’t just black and white, it’s not that simple / It’s hard to tell who’s wrong or right,” she sings. “When it’s dark, I swear I can see the light / Should I stick it out? / Are you worth this fight, are we worth this fight?”
Blige filed for divorce from Isaacs back in July, citing irreconcilable differences.
