Kendu Isaacs Seeking Increase In Support Because Mary’s Been Using Him For Successful “Divorce Songs”

October 23, 2017  |  

According to documents obtained by celebrity news site The Blast, Mary J. Blige’s estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs is requesting more spousal support from Blige because her decision to bash his name publicly and through her “divorce songs” has hindered his employment opportunities.

With the release of her latest album, Strength of a Woman, Blige, 46, has put out music that seemingly calls out her relationship with Isaacs. She also hasn’t been shy about saying how disrespectful he was during their marriage while speaking publicly. In September, she called the 49-year-old a con artist.

“I thought someone loved me, right? Turns out, he was a con artist and he didn’t, and now he’s coming after me for all my money,” she said while promoting her film Mudbound. “When you come out of something like that, you realize you were never the one. There was someone else that was his queen. I got played. I got suckered. I have to keep smiling and keep my spirits up because this is designed to kill me.”

Well, Isaacs says that such public statements about him, along with the release of singles “Love Yourself” and “Set Me Free” in particular, have hurt his ability to find work. According to The Blast, he needs more money from Blige to get by while he tries to find work and to pay for the 1,400 square foot apartment he’s staying in while in Los Angeles. He originally requested $129,319 a month before Blige was ordered to only pay $30,000 a month in spousal support back in June.  But now he is seeking an increase to $65,000, claiming she has $275,476 a month available that can go towards paying him spousal support. All in all, Isaacs says Blige has used him and his name to make successful “divorce songs,” so he wants his cut. Based on the way the judge ruled previously though, we don’t really see it happening.

    Now THIS MFFFFFF, is REALLLLLLY ticking me the he’ll offffff!!! How dare he!!! What kind of work was this cheating, lying, intentionally deceptive BASTAAAARD doing before he hooked himself to MARY”S money train??? Whatever it was, I’m gonna’ need his assssss to get back to it…something, anything, and stop it!!! Bruh does not deserve another coin of this sisters hard-earned dukats!!! She has already paid and employed him as her manager, as co-writer, in various executive capacities, and tried to keep the wealth within the circle of close fam and friends! Enough is enough! That’s why you NEVER get married in a no fault state like CA! An individual ccan come into the marriage, intentionally deceptive, con formulated to manipulate and steal, and even with all the evidence in the world, if the scammer has remained married for the right amount of time, and has the right lawyer, the aggrieged party could still be responsible for taking care of the scammer financially, simply because they have the means. Absolutely FUCKERY!!!

    This mutha…ok. First off Mary is known for putting her best music out as it pertains her personal experiences, so her messy divorce is no exception. If he hadnt been such a dog and have the nerve to still expect her to take care of him AND his family, she wouldn’t have any good material to put out. He cant find work bcuz he doesnt want to and he screwed over Mary J. Blige, who by the wsy is an icon. Somethin is wrong w/ this dude. I hope the judge laughs in his face right before they tell him to GTFOH.

    Hate to say it but this took advantage of her when she was at a bad place in her life fighting from drugs knowing he could binge off of that as she wasn’t in that good state of mind! Mary J. Blige final woke up and I hope that finally she can get a man that will actual love her and not what she has! So next time get a man on your level!
