When Mary J. Blige and Kendu Isaacs filed for divorce in 2016, Isaacs initially requested $100,000 per month but was only granted $30,000 in monthly spousal support.

But following the success of her album and the role their split played in helping it reach acclaim status, Isaacs, reportedly requested an increase in spousal support because of it. According to, he also claims he’s been unable to find employment because Blige continues to discuss their split publicly.

Blaming the success of songs like, “Love Yourself,” and “Set Me Free,” tracks he allegedly refers to as “divorce songs,” Isaacs believes Blige should increase her monthly spousal support payments to $65,000.

He is also demanding another $345,000 for pay he believes she owes him for the time he worked as her personal manager during her King & Queen of Hearts tour.

endu insists Mary has been using interviews as an opportunity to defame him. He blames her criticism for his inability to find another job, despite his “aggressive efforts” to do so.

“In fact, petitioner has financially benefitted from this divorce because she used it as a platform to promote her new music, album, and tour,” Kendu wrote in court papers, obtained by Bossip“Since the divorce was initiated, she has released at least two songs that have been dubbed her ‘divorce’ songs. The evidence will show that petitioner reaped a substantial profit from this divorce.”

With the latest filing, Isaacs continues to argue that he deserves half of Mary’s earnings for work he did for her throughout their marriage. He’s reportedly demanding “half of her royalties, residuals, and commissions that Mary earned from her music, film, and TV work during their nearly 13-year marriage.”

    Why don’t the court tell this bum to get a job. It is a shame that Mary J have to go through all this bullshit to be such a talented woman. Why are so many of our black female recording artists marrying bums?

      Probably the same reason many regular women do…loneliness, wanting to fix him, the guy acting like prince charming in the beginning, restricted supply of men and women tend to overlook red flags thinking it will all work out when they get married

  2. He is a sorry piece of crap. I would not give him one penny. He deserves nothing from this marriage but a quick kick in the butt. You cheat on your wife while she is out working and earning a living and now you want her to pay you for your bad behavior. You are sick joke of a man. Bye, Boy!

    He has NO shame whatsoever…He’s not even trying to fake the fake that he’s on the take, lol…Ok, since no one else said anything…Mary J’s edges have divorced her head…Oh, us black women gotta lay off the lace fronts, tight braids and weaves!

      Yep, I noticed the hairline too. Lots of damage there. Stylist should never have styled her hair that way. Having said that, I love Mary, and as for you African American Woman, you know you wrong for that, but Lord help me, I did laugh!

    Is there no end to the lows this Loser Kendu (Kansas not do) character would go to steal from this hardworking woman who gave him his biggest break in life? I mean who ever really heard of Kendu Isaacs until MJB came into his life? Our black men like This guy just really need to do better and get a live.

  5. Divorce songs — if you hadn’t cheated, there would be no songs. This is not a MAN (take notes JHud). Real men don’t DEPEND on their women’s for income ESPCIALLY to support the side piece. Live with and work for her, pimp!

    Since he’s claiming he’s been unable to find employment, the judge needs to make him show where and who he has tried to find a job. McDonalds is always hiring. I swear he would disappear before I let his cheating money hungry ass keep trying to up support money.

    Exactly! She should include in her countersuit, the return of monies he spent on his side piece, misappropriation of the marital funds. I agree justbeingme, “kick rocks with open toe shoes” lol, good one. This dude has got some nerve.

  8. What a pathetic piece of crap. You’re right B, she should sue him for emotional distress and demand that he get no more than what he has already gotten because of his adultery. What an absolute loser.

    Kendu needs to kick rocks with open toe shoes. He is crazy trying to reap the benifits off of mary’s fame. When he was spending her money on other women while they were married. He should not entitled to any of her money or any risiduals. He wasn’t even a good manager let alone a good husband. He should leave the marriage eith what he came into it with.
