Mary J. Blige Divorce Gets Uglier As Husband Withholds Assets

BACK

House being pulled by frayed ropeNine-time Grammy Award winner Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs in July this year, citing irreconcilable differences. Ever since, it seems like this rollercoaster of a divorce has gone to deeper and deeper depths. The divorce started with a bang, as Isaacs was not only Blige’s husband, but also her manager, a business relationship that was promptly severed by the divorce.

In September, TMZ reported contention between the two regarding the prenuptial agreement that they signed. Blige’s attorney asked the judge presiding over their case to rule on the validity of the prenup, which Isaac’s attorney called “invalid, unenforceable and unconscionable.”

In November, it was revealed that Isaacs was requesting quite the sum of money from Blige: nearly $130,000 per month in spousal support, $100,000 for attorney fees and $30,000 in forensic accountant fees, which he argues is necessary due to Blige cutting off his access to their joint business and personal accounts.

Where Are They Now?

In mid-December, Blige filed new documents accusing Isaacs of withholding significant assets from her. Among them: a Range Rover that Isaacs was supposed to return in February, a Mercedes C300 that Blige wants (while allowing Isaacs to keep the other Mercedes) and ”“ yes ”“ one of Blige’s Grammy Awards. Blige has also accused Isaacs of stealing $420,000 from her, which he allegedly spent on “business expenses” that had absolutely nothing to do with her business.
