Mary J. Blige Demands $6M From Ex Kendu Isaacs

Mary J. Blige has demanded nearly $6million from her ex Kendu Isaacs.

In new court documents obtained by TMZ, the singer reportedly claimed their community estate is worth negative $11,622,614, most of which is owed to the IRS.

The 46-year-old has agreed to let her ex-husband walk away from the debt if he coughs up exactly $5,990,357.

She also claimed once again in the documents that she should not have to pay spousal support, because she is bearing the burden of their debt, while he is not willing to do anything.

This week it emerged the Queen of Hip Hop Soul was slapped with a lien after failing to pay $1.76 million in taxes.
Documents obtained by DailyMailTV showed Blige owes the IRS a total of $6.5 million in unpaid taxes for the years 2008 through 2016.

The R&B star filed an Income and Expense Declaration in a Los Angeles court this past summer after she was ordered to pay $30,000 him in spousal support.

In it, the she reported a change in income due to a 'large reduction' in her royalties over the past year.

According to documents obtained by DailyMailTV, the IRS is slapping the $1,764,724.35 lien and could attach any of the property owned by the star.

This comes after she was hit with a $3.4M lien back in 2013.

Blige owns three properties including an eight-bedroom, ten-bathroom, Saddle River, New Jersey mansion that has been on the market since 2015. The house was described as 'unrentable,' according to documents.

The songstress also owns another home in Cresskill, New Jersey, which was boarded up by the city and is in a 'state of disrepair.'

In addition to paying off her debts, the Real Love hitmaker must continue shelling out $30,000 in spousal support after a judge made the ruling on Tuesday.

The 46-year-old Grammy-winning singer filed for divorce from Isaacs, 49, in July 2016, citing irreconcilable differences after nearly 13 years of marriage.

In a trial brief filed October 13, Isaacs had demanded his estranged wife provide $65,000 weekly, alleging Blige makes an average gross monthly income available for support of $275,476, while he on the other hand, has 'no immediate prospective earnings.'

Isaacs's requests were denied on Tuesday, but he will continue receiving the $30,000 a month the judge ordered in June. Isaacs had originally sought $130,000.

In that same hearing, Blige was ordered to pay $100,000 towards Isaacs's legal fees in monthly installments of $15k.
The 49-year-old, who worked as Blige's manager, has claimed the star left him with 'no source of income' after she fired him when they split.

The lawsuit claims he has made 'aggressive efforts' to find a job, but has struggled because Blige has tried to 'tarnish' his reputation in the media.

Blige opened up about her divorce in an interview with Variety last month, suggesting Isaacs had been unfaithful and calling him a 'con artist.'

'I'm doing OK. I'm living,' she said. '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.'

Blige also told how she channeled the pain and anguish from the nasty split into her role of Florence Jackson in the upcoming Netflix film Mudbound.

Isaacs is now arguing that the artist has financially benefited from the divorce, using it to 'promote her new music, album, and tour.'

'Since the divorce was initiated, [Blige] has released at least two songs that have been dubbed her "divorce songs,"' The evidence will show that [she] has reaped a substantial profit from this divorce,' court documents read.
