Kendu Isaacs Blames Divorce for His Hospitalization, Says He's Now 'Unemployable' and Can't Pay His Rent without Mary's Money


Mary J. Blige's ongoing divorce saga just took another turn.

Her estranged husband, Martin 'Kendu' Isaacs, has filed court documents alleging that he “has experienced physical manifestations of stress and emotional distress” from the case “which has caused him to become hospitalized,” according to The Blast.

Isaacs also claimed that he is “unemployable” so it is “impossible” for him to pay his rent without Blige’s help. He currently receives $30,000 from Blige each month and wants a judge to award him an additional $35,000.

Blige accused him of spending at least $420,000 on his new girlfriend in April 2017.

The former couple is set to go to trial in March.

Blige and her former manager tied the knot in 2003, but she filed for divorce in July 2016. Her most recent album addresses their split, while the 46-year-old already went after Isaac’s alleged affair with her protégé Starshell in her “Strength of a Woman” documentary.

“All these years have come to this, like you didn’t even pick me, you picked somebody else,” she said. “That s–t is humiliating. It hurt real bad. But … they got beds, we gotta lay in it.And just so we’re clear … Do not let her anywhere near what you’re doing for me, because she’s the reason for all of this s–t. That’s my Becky with the good hair!”

Blige later told Variety: “I’m living. I’m not happy about a lot of things. I thought someone loved me, right? Turns out, he was a con artist and he didn’t, and now he’s coming after me for all my money. When you come out of something like that, you realize you were never the one. There was someone else that was his queen. I got played. I got suckered. I have to keep smiling and keep my spirits up because this is designed to kill me.”

Kendu, have a seat.
