Mary J. Blige Reveals The Real Reason She’s Divorceing Kendu Isaacs – Tha Wire
Mary J. Blige has filed new divorce documents accusing her estranged husband, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, of cheating her out of $420,000. Isaacs was the singers manager and apparently prior to filling for divorce, Mary found out he'd been stealing from her. Over the last several months it's been no secret that the former couple are currently in the mists of a very nasty divorce. The R&B diva filed to end their 12-year marriage last year in July, citing irreconcilable differences.
Isaacs responded to Mary's request for divorce, by asking for $130,000 a month in spousal support, and $100,000 for attorney's fees. Ever since then, the two have been locked into a legal battle over money. Now it's being reported that Mary has filed additional legal docs in the case, revealing the real reason she filed for divorce. From what it looks like, the star had uncovered Kendu's dirty dealings. Extra TV reports they got access to those docs and they reveal the 9-time Grammy winner fired Isaacs, when she discovered he “fleeced her out of” more than $400K. That's not all.
Kendu is being accused of padding the books, to cover up spending Mary's money without her knowledge. As manager he reportedly stole $420,000 and charged the money to the his wife's company. Isaac's made up bogus accounts to try and hide what he was doing. Claiming the money was used of business expenses, but that wasn't true. In addition Mary accuses her former manager of refusing to return luxury vehicles, that were leased under her company name. Though she's allowing him to keep a Mercedes SL500, he was suppose to return a Range Rover and a Mercedes 300 back in February.
There is also more info about Isaacs spousal support request. According to Extra Mary paid her husband 10% of her monthly income of $371,749, to be her manager. When she fired him, he claims that left him with no income. Therefore he also wants her to pay a forensic accountant fee of $30,000. If that's not bad enough he had a side-piece, and that's allegedly who he was spending Mary's money on!
One thing about Mary J., she's always been an open book when it comes to her relationships. Her ups and downs through the years have made her music powerful, empowering and uplifting. Recently she appeared on Good Morning America and talked about dealing with the heartache of divorce and more. Peep the video below:
We certainly wish her the very best. I have no doubt this R&B diva will bounce back, and be stronger than ever. Her new album, Strength of A Woman is proof that! Mary's highly anticipated LP drops April 28, 2017, and features Hip Hops biggest stars like Kanye West, Quavo, DJ Khaled, Missy Elliot, and more.
