After finalizing her divorce from Kendu Isaacs, Mary J. Blige says she will be more selective in the men she chooses to date. The “I’m Going Down” songstress said in a recent interview with DJ Ace on BBC Radio 1Xtra that she’s done dating men who can’t take care of themselves financially.
When asked what it would take for a man to to be taken seriously in her life, the diva responded, “Well, he has to have more money than me, that’s for sure, because I’m not taking care of any more men.”
Neither Blige nor her ex-husband has commented on the final numbers of their divorce, but the singer was ordered to pay Isaacs $30,000 per month in temporary spousal support while they battled it out in court. He initially requested $129,319 a month.
