Mary J. Blige is Officially Divorced From Kendu Issacs

Mary J. Blige’s 13th studio album, Strength of a Woman, largely dealt with the demise of her marriage to former manager, Kendu Issacs. After over a year of back and forth over spousal support and accusations of defamation from Issacs, the “Glow Up” singer is officially a single woman.

Blige signed off on her final divorce documents Wednesday, according to TMZ.

The two parties reached a settlement back in March, and while neither has commented on the final numbers, Blige was previously ordered to pay Isaacs $30,000 per month in temporary spousal support. He initially requested $129,319 per month.

The pair have no children together, but Kendu has three children, Nas, Jordan and Briana, from previous relationships.

Born and raised in Compton, California, Jessica Bennett began her career as an intern at The Oakland Post, and later, The Source Magazine. She went on to write for respected hip hop publications such as DJ Booth and Hip Hop DX before becoming the Urban Editor of pop culture website, Wetpaint.com. She joined Ebony as the Entertainment Editor August 2017. Bennett has interviewed such names as Vanessa Williams, Spike Lee, Tyra Banks, Forest Whitaker, Magic & Cookie Johnson and several others.
