These Are the Expenses Mary J. Blige's Husband Wants Her to Cover...

All is fair in love and war.

Published October 19, 2016

After Mary J. Blige and her estranged husband, Kendu Isaacsfiled for divorce earlier this summer, it wasn't long until word got out that Isaacs would be asking for a ridiculous amount of spousal support as part of their settlement.

In fact, the pretty penny he's asking for is nothing less than $129,000 a month, and is reportedly "necessary" for him to receive in order for him to maintain the life he was accustomed to while they were married. Isaacs is also saying that their prenup should be voided because Blige had a lawyer present at the time of the signing and he did not. 

So, all that being said, what exactly would one do with a payment from their ex of $129,000 per month?

According to various reports, Isaacs has a plan in mind on how he'd spend the support each month. While the validity is not 100 percent confirmed, if this list pans out to be true, Isaacs certainly is bold for asking his former lover (and clear breadwinner) for this.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • $5,000 for the child support he pays for the two children he had from a previous relationship
  • $7,000 in rent
  • $1,000 allowance for new clothes
  • $8,000 for a private chef
  • $3,200 for a personal trainer
  • $5,000 he pays his parents each month
  • $21,677 he gives in charitable donations
  • $71,000 in rent he owes to several properties

On top of all of that, Isaacs also is allegedly asking for $100,000 for his attorney fees, and $30,000 for his forensic accounting fees.

Someone please go check on Blige — and make her a very strong drink — as it's starting to feel like this is going to be one drawn out, messy divorce.
