Mary J. Blige and Kendu Isaacs’ Divorce
It was revealed that Blige filed for divorce in July 2016. Citing irreconcilable differences, the singer was adamant in pursuing the end of her marriage.
For two years, the pair went back and forth over a divorce settlement, with Blige seeking to work a way out of paying Isaacs the court-ordered $30,000 spousal support.
Avoiding the spousal support worked for Blige as she claimed that he spent extravagantly on his mistresses. Eventually, the settlement came in 2018.
