Mary J. Blige’s soon-to-be ex-husband does not plan to go away empty-handed. According to TMZ, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs filed his response to Blige’s divorce petition this week, and in it he’s requesting spousal support AND for her to pay his legal fees.
Isaacs also listed their separation as July 25, which would mean the couple’s assets would be shared up to that date. In her initial petition on July 28, Blige listed the separation date as “to be determined” and requested that spousal support be blocked.
Blige and Kendu married in 2003. The “No More Drama” singer cited irreconcilable differences for the split, with her rep noting, “Sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would. But there is a divine plan and a reason for everything.”
It’s still unclear if they have a prenup.
