Martin 'Kendu' Isaacs, the husband of soul legend Mary J. Blige is demanding $129,319 per month in spousal support.

 

According to TMZ, Martin Isaacs has filed for temporary spousal support, demanding $129,319 per month. When asked why he wants that, his argument was that Mary was the breadwinner during their 12-year marriage and got him used to their lavish lifestyle.

Martin who used to be Blige's manager, says she earned around $1.5 to $5.1m over the last 2 years and she's currently on tour with an album about to drop.

He, on the other hand, has no source of income since Mary fired him shortly after she filed for divorce.

Kendu Isaacs also wants her to pay for his legal fees also.

On July 29, 2016, Mary J. Blige released a statement about her divorce. "Ms Blige is saddened to say [that] it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don't work how we hoped they would... but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything.

The news of the divorce filing came as a shock to many considering the kind of history the pair share. The couple were married for 12 years after tying the knot in December 2003 but have no kids together.

On Tuesday, July 26, Mary J Blige, 45, cited irreconcilable differences and listing the date of separation as "to be determined" when she filed for divorce.
