Mary J. Blige Headed Into Divorce Settlement Talks with Kendu Issacs (UPDATE)

UPDATE: 12/12/17

Mary J. Blige and soon-to-be ex-husband Kendu Issacs have had a turbulent breakup thus far. After airing out her former manager for cheating on the latest album, Strength of a Woman, Issacs accused the singer of bashing him to the point where he could no longer find employment.

Before squaring up for a full-blown court battle, Blige and Issacs are attempting to hash out a settlement during a “mandatory conference,” according to Bossip.  If the former couple cannot come up with a solution in regards to property, shared funds, etc, their divorce case will head to trial in March 2018.

The “Glow Up” singer filed for divorce in 2016 from her husband of 15 years, accusing him of misappropriating more than $400,000 of her money on his mistress. A judge has ordered her to pay Isaacs $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support.

ORIGINAL STORY: 10/24/2017

Mary J. Blige’s 13th studio album, Strength of a Woman, largely dealt with the demise of her marriage to her 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 judgment granted in June of this year to a whopping $65,000. He suggests that the “No More Drama” artist now has $275,475 a month available for support payments, so the increase would be a mere drop in the bucket for the soulful diva.
