Mary J. Blige Says Kendu Isaacs Spent $420K On His Side Chick
According to the NY Post’s Page Six, Mary J Blige’s husband was allegedly cheating on her with Mary’s protege 28-year-old Starshell.
Here’s what they say:
Sources told Page Six that Isaacs cheated on Blige with Starshell, 28, an up-and-coming artist Blige signed to her Matriarch Entertainment record label.
“Everyone knew. Mary was the last to know, but it’s like, how do you not know?” a source told us.
Another source added, “It was more like one of those things where you end up believing what you want to believe. But Mary had her suspicions.” Blige, 46, often brought Starshell to red carpets, events and TV appearances to build the burgeoning artist’s profile.
“It’s really f – – ked up and low to have it done to her that way. Had it not been for Mary signing her, investing time and money . . . Because no one cared about her music,” the first source said.
Desperate Mary J. Blige knocks ANOTHER $1 million off her New Jersey mansion as her soon-to-be ex demands $130,000 a month in spousal support
More details on Mary J. Blige’s impending divorce to her shady azz ex-are being released and things are going from bad to worse. As previously reported Kendu Isaacs wants $110,000 in monthly spousal support, $5,000 a month to support his parents, $4,971 for two children from a past relationship, $1,200 for restaurant dining and $60,000 in rent he owes to several properties.
And in divorce docs, MJB’s calling out Kendu for taking $420,000 of her money for “travel charges” that were actually used to lavish a sleazy side chick. TMZ who checked out the court papers, reports;
“Remember, he was her manager … but Mary says those expenses were not business-related and did NOT include her. She says Martin spent that dough on his gf.”
How shady can you be????
Mary’s still adamant that Kendu is not entitled to the $110K he’s asking for and adds that she shouldn’t be responsible for supporting his parents and children from a previous relationship.
Remember when a “hacked” MJB tweeted about hating Kendu and his whole family???
She’s also reportedly alleging that she flat out doesn’t have the money, and her estate is “underwater” to the tune of $10 million.

The eight-bedroom, nearly 20,000-square-foot Saddle River home is now listed for $8.9 million, DailyMail.com has learned, and that would mean a $3 million loss on the property if it sells.
Blige, 45, paid $12.8 million for the home – reportedly an all-cash deal – in 2008 and listed it for $13 million in 2015. This is the fourth price cut in less than two years.
The No More Drama singer, who split from her husband and manager Kendu Isaacs in July after 12 years of marriage, has seemingly split from the home too, which is largely emptied of furnishings.

Mary J. Blige Hits Husband At Release Party ( VIDEO )
*We gotta hand it to Kendu Isaacs, the future ex-husband of singer Mary J. Blige. Dude’s either playing Jedi Mind Tricks with Miss Mary or he’s doing some high stakes negotiating. Or maybe he’s just f-ing crazy! Either way, it looks like he doesn’t have much to lose.
Yep, the headline says it all. Blige’s estranged husband is saying he’s worth a 6-figure check from her … EVERY month, while they hash out their divorce, according to TMZ.
Martin “Kendu” Isaacs filed for temporary spousal support, and according to the documents, he’s asking for slightly less than $130k a month. To be exact, he specified $129,319 per month. His reasoning is simple enough. Mary was the one who brought home the bacon during their 12-year marriage and got him used to their lavish lifestyle.
Martin says Mary earned anywhere from $1.5 to $5.1 million over the last 2 years. Remember, he used to be her manager … and he points out she’s currently on tour with an album about to drop. He, on the other hand, has zero income since Mary fired him shortly after she filed for divorce.
As for that prenup we told you about … Martin believes it’s bogus since he signed it without a lawyer. And he says Mary knows the prenup’s BS, as evidenced by the fact she’s already cut him 2 checks for a total of $85k.
Like we said, we gotta hand it to Mr. Isaacs. He knows where the bones are buried, so to speak. And besides, what he got to lose?
And speaking of the prenup, here’s what we reported earlier …
*Mary J. Blige has taken legal steps to make clear that her prenup is iron clad.
According to TMZ, Blige’s lawyer Gary Fishbein filed docs asking the judge to approve her prenuptial agreement. She’s worried, however, because the lawyer for her estranged husband, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, is trying to claim that the prenup is “immensely invalid, unenforceable and unconscionable.”
Blige says they drew up the prenup on December 5th, 2003 and got married two days later.
As previously reported, she filed for divorce in July and asked the judge to block Isaacs’ bid for spousal support.
In Blige’s latest filing, she says her prenup clearly lays out who gets what and should not be thrown out.
Singer’s rep says she didn’t hit husband, but was trying to stop fight between him and her brother
*The NY Daily News has spoken to Mary J. Blige’s publicist and contrary to reports that the singer decked her husband, Kendu Isaacs, at a promotional event for her new CD, Karynne Tencer told the paper that Blige was trying to stop a brawl between Isaacs and her brother.
“Mary was not fighting with her husband,” said Tencer. “Her husband and her brother got into an altercation that turned into a fight. Mary went to break up the fight.”
But Tencer claims she doesn’t know the name of Blige’s brother or the reason for the row at the M2 Ultralounge.
Club security helped the Grammy Award winner pull the men apart, who also disputed reports that Isaacs’ lip was bleeding.
“Nobody was bleeding,” Tencer said.
Blige’s camp also denied the singer screamed ‘What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?’ at her husband.
“She never mentioned Chris Brown,” Tencer said. “Mary and Kendu went home together.”
The Daily News also reported that after sources claimed the no more drama singe had smacked Isaacs because he was supposedly flirting with a waitress, she decided to set the record straight.
However, it is interesting that Blige herself hasn’t spoken directly herself to the media to refute the allegations.
Earlier we reported …
Both the New York Daily News and the New York Post have reported that Mary J. Blige hauled off and socked her husband Kendu Isaacs in front of guests at her album release party Tuesday night after accusing him of flirting with a woman.
The reported punch in the face – which drew blood, according to the Post – went down at New York’s M2 after Blige allegedly saw Kendu checking out one of the waitresses.
“[Blige] turned to him and was screaming, ‘You’re not going to ruin my night,'” a witness told the Post. “They got up in each other’s faces before someone tried to separate them, at which point she shoved the guy aside, pulled back and popped [Isaacs] in the face.”
The source said Blige, Isaacs and their entourage were whisked through a door to the attached club Pink, which was closed. The witness continued, “She was yelling at him, ‘What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?’ Four of her bodyguards and two of the club’s kept them apart..”
Isaacs, according to the Post, was tossed out of the venue, while Blige went to the ladies room to fix her hair and makeup. But she bounced soon after, leaving partygoers Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Busta Rhymes and others behind, according to the papers.
When asked to confirm the reports, Blige’s rep, Karynne Tencer, told the Post, “People lie and don’t know what they’re talking about.” When the Daily News asked for a comment, she referred to the incident as a “misunderstanding” and said Blige’s marriage is as strong as ever.
“They’re as happy as can be,” said Tencer. “They’re spending the holidays together with their three children. Everything’s great.”
