Mary J. Blige has lobbed a new complaint against her estranged husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs.


As previously reported, last July, the singer filed for divorce from her spouse of 12 years, citing irreconcilable differences; despite denying rumors earlier that year, that her marriage was on the rocks. “My marriage is not on the rocks, but I would be a liar and my fans would hate me if I said to them, ‘Oh, we’re perfect and everything is great,’ ” she said during an appearance on “Wendy,” in February 2016. “We have situations just like everyone else. We’re not out in public trying to kill each other, but it’s real. We love each other.”


Now, according to new court documents, the singer, 46, claimed that Isaacs spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on “travel charges” that involved his mistress. Per People, Blige also claims that Isaacs refuses to surrender his Mercedes, for which she pre-paid the lease, as well as her “Grammys and other achievement awards.” As the long-standing breadwinner, Blige also admitted she was drowning in debt totaling more than $10M.

Last fall, the “No More Drama” singer appeared on “Good Morning America” where dished out some sound advice for all women; that “it’s important for any woman going through a divorce to keep control of their finances.”


In addition to surrendering her prized possessions, Blige requested that the court deny his request for spousal support, in which Isaacs was seeking $110,000 a month.

While the pair does not have any children together, Blige had stepped into the role of stepmother to Isaacs’ children — Briana, Jordan and Nas — from a former relationship. “I am not responsible for supporting [Martin’s] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses,” Blige stated in the court documents.
