A court has ordered nine-time Grammy Award-winner Mary J. Blige to pay her estranged husband and former manager, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, $30,000 monthly in temporary spousal support.
E! News, citing court documents, said Thursday that the R&B singer, 46, additionally must pay support retroactively to September and reimburse Isaacs his legal fees, altogether totaling $235,000. Isaacs had asked for $129,319 a month.
The multiplatinum recording star, who married Isaacs in December 2003 at her home in Bergen County, New Jersey, has said in court filings that he had misappropriated money for two years, including $420,000 in travel charges unrelated to their business and not including her. Blige filed for divorce last summer.
