Mary J. Blige was married to Martin “Kendu” Isaacs for over 12 years. They filed for divorce last July. However, while the legal proceedings continue, Blige has been ordered to pay Isaacs on a monthly schedule.

MARY J. BLIGE ORDERED TO PAY MARTIN ISAACS $30K PER MONTH

According to TMZ, Blige’s monthly expenditures are for “temporary spousal support.” The singer is obligated to give her ex-husband $30,000 per month. Additionally, this will be retroactive, dating back to September of last year. Isaacs’ legal fees, which are about $235,000, are also included in Blige’s bill.

However, while the total sum of money isn’t an inconsiderable amount, it falls well below the $129,319 per month Isaacs requested. Evidentially, the court agreed the manager warranted enough money to simulate the lifestyle he enjoyed while together with Blige, but it found the amount he suggested to be “unreasonable.”

Finally, the court did make a note of how the pair were in debt during their union. There are still “millions of dollars” yet to be paid in taxes between them.
