You’ve probably already heard about Mary J. Blige’s current tax woes. As we reported last week, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul owes the IRS more than $3,000,000, claiming she neglected to pay taxes for three consecutive years: 2009, 2010, and 2011. We haven’t heard from Blige as of yet, but her husband sure has a lot to say. Well, at least on Twitter. When a fan of his wife tried to blame Kendu Isaacs for Mary’s money trouble after Isaacs claimed it was all a lie (Isaacs is reportedly her manager and has been since the early 00s), he fired back, and it got a little ugly:
@Kenduisaacs Go home & raise your kids, Mary needs a professional team. And being quite don’t make anything better.
@iNewYorker get ur own life and live it! My wife & I are fine & u believe that stupid Isht if U want to, because u have nothing else to do.
@Kenduisaacs Who’s gonna lie about an IRS lien? ( @TMZ) I never came for y’all relationship, dummy. You a bad manager. @iNewYorker you are a asshole. You do nothing but sit online and watch others lives and think you know what your talking about.
Clearly this is a very touchy subject for everyone in Mary’s circle. But honestly, I can’t understand how celebrities and the people who manage their finances find themselves going YEARS without giving the IRS their money. Anywho, as for Isaacs, it probably would have been best to ignore the Twitter follower. Isaacs has bigger fish to fry…like figuring out his family is going to pay back the IRS ASAP so that Mary doesn’t end up in a situation like Wesley Snipes or Lauryn Hill…
What do you think of his back and forth with the follower on Twitter?
