Mary J. Blige’s Ex Demands More Spousal Support Over ‘Divorce Songs’

Mary J. Blige’s 13th studio album, Strength of a Woman, largely dealt with the demise of her marriage to former manager, Kendu Issacs. Because of this, the former industry insider claims he can no longer find work, and is demanding the queen of hip hop/soul compensate him for his losses.

According to documents obtained by TheBlast, Issacs points out the Yonkers-bred singer has released two songs, “Love Yourself” and “Set Me Free” which are now known as “divorce songs” from which the songstress has made a profit.

“Isaacs says he has been unemployed since the divorce case was filed, and claims Blige is trashing him in the press, hindering his ability to get a job,” claims the source.

The father of three is now demanding a judge bump up his spousal support from the $30,000 per month judgement granted in June of this year to a whopping $65,000. He suggests that the “No More Drama” artist now has $275,475 per month available for support payments, so the increase would be a mere drop in the bucket for the soulful diva.

See Blige discuss her divorce from Issacs below.
