Mary J. Blige is gonna have to cough up some emergency relief dough to her estranged husband while their divorce plays out, but he’s gotta be disappointed by how much he’s getting.
Mary J. Blige has been ordered to pay $30,000 a month in spousal support to her estranged husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs as part of divorce proceedings.
According to TMZ reports The court found Martin was entitled to some dough to accommodate the standard of living he was used to while married to Mary, but also decided his dream number was unreasonable.
Isaacs had initially asked for nearly $130,000 a month in spousal support, a figure Blige and her lawyers strongly opposed.
Mary Blige will also have to pay retroactive spousal support dating back to September … and his attorney fees — that comes to $235k.
One last interesting note … the court says Mary and Martin were living beyond their means during their marriage and still have millions of dollars to pay back in taxes.
Mary Blige has showed her divorce frustration in interviews particularly during a sit-down with Angie Martinez
“You know, he has the power to make it all go away, if he just would stop demanding what he’s demanding,” said Blige. “And that’s not fair to me because he doesn’t deserve what he’s demanding. It’s not fair. Why do I have to pay you? And why do you think you deserve this amount of money? Why do you think you deserve any money? You didn’t make me. You’re not God. So I have to pay you for being my husband and for being my manager?”
