R&B singer Mary J Blige lost the latest round in her acrimonious divorce battle with estranged husband Kendu Isaacs. A Judge ordered the “Not Gon’ Lie” singer to pay Isaacs $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support.
The amount is a fraction of the $129,319 a month that Isaacs originally asked the judge to force Blige to pay. In court documents Blige accused her former manager of using her to support his parents, girlfriend, and his children from a previous relationship.
“I’m not responsible for supporting his parents and his children from another relationship, which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses,” Blige stated in her divorce petition.
But the judge bought Isaacs’ argument that he was entitled to the lavish lifestyle he had become accustomed to as the husband of an R&B star.
The judge also ordered Blige to pay spousal support retroactively, dating back to when she first filed for a divorce, and his legal fees for a total of $235,000.
In addition to the spousal support, Blige and Isaacs also owe the IRS millions in back taxes.
This might be a good time for Blige to file for bankruptcy to reorganize her finances.
