Mary J. Blige Divorce Case Could Be Contentious after Husband Requests Spousal Support

Mary J. Blige, the famous singer and actress, could be in for a contentious divorce. Blige filed for divorce earlier this year, but now it has been learned that her estranged husband is seeking spousal support.

Blige and Martin “Kendu” Isaacs married in 2003. Now the couple’s 12-year marriage appears to have come to an end.

Blige and Isaacs were more than just a married couple; they were also tied together in business. Isaacs served as Blige’s manager for several years, but ceased to be the singer’s manager after the couple legally separated.

Although Blige probably hoped that the divorce process would go smoothly and be resolved with a minimum of conflict, Isaacs’ recent response to the divorce petition indicates that proceedings could be combative. Isaacs has requested spousal support from Blige, with Blige responding almost immediately through her divorce lawyers that she plans to contest the alimony request.

There is another interesting point of contention in the divorce case: Isaacs listed July 25, 2016 as the date on which the couple legally separated. This differs from the date listed by Blige. Timing is very important in a divorce case like this because the couple’s assets can potentially be shared until the exact date of legal separation. This means that Isaacs may be able to request more money and assets in the divorce.

At this time, it has not been revealed whether Blige and Isaacs signed a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot. If the couple did not have a prenup, it’s possible that Blige’s considerable net worth could be at stake in the divorce.

Since the couple does not have any child together, there will not be any child support or child custody issues in the high-profile divorce case.

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
