After 12 years together, this, what seemed like a happy couple, has called it quits. After an alleged affair and calling him a "con artist" this beloved musician has had enough.
Mary J. Blige and her ex-husband Kendu Issacs are now legally divorced after about a year of going back and forth with settlement disagreements. On Wednesday, June 20, a Los Angeles judge approved of Blige's divorce arrangement.
The former couple has been together for 12 years and broke the news in 2016 that they were splitting up. They just reached an agreement this past March leaving Blige relieved to have it finally be over with.
Last September, according to "People," Blige revealed to "Variety" about her broken marriage. She told them that, although she was "doing okay" after her separation with Issacs, it's a struggle to "keep her spirits up."
She later opened up claiming he is a "con artist," and that he was having an affair while they were still married.
“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," Blige said.
"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,” she added.
Last year, Blige was court ordered to pay Issacs $30,000 per month in temporary spousal support. Blige claimed that her estranged husband spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on "travel charges" that included other women he was reportedly having an affair with.
Blige claims that she pre-paid the lease to Issacs Mercedes, and he refused to give back the possessions of her "Grammy and other achievement awards." It was also revealed that she was the only one bringing in the income and that they racked in $10,000,000 in debt.
