Kendu Isaacs and the ongoing divorce proceedings with his estranged wife Mary J. Blige have seemingly gone in his favor despite questionable contribution to her success. The R&B legend’s former manager is seeking to increase his monthly spousal support, citing that Blige’s recent “divorce songs” have boosted her popularity and records sales with Isaacs wanting a piece of the pie.
The Blast exclusively reports:
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Isaacs says he has been unemployed since the divorce case was filed, and claims Blige is trashing him in the press, hindering his ability to get a job.
He points out the singer has released two songs, “Love Yourself” and “Set Me Free” which he says are now known as her “divorce songs.” He says Blige has seen a surge in success as a result of the breakup.
Meanwhile, Isaacs says since leaving the $8 million he shared with Blige, he’s shacking up in a 1,400 sq. ft. apartment in Los Angeles. He says he needs more money from Blige just to survive.
