Mary J. Blige’s estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs, is apparently very ill and was taken to the hospital due to stress from the former pair’s nasty divorce.
According to reports, he has “experienced physical manifestations of stress and emotional distress from this matter, which has caused him to become hospitalized.”
Isaacs and Blige’s tumultuous divorce has not only been ongoing since 2016, but the split has been insanely expensive. In October 2017, it was unveiled that the former manager was unhappy with the $30,000 a month spousal support Blige was ordered to pay. So instead, he asked for a whopping $65,000 per month.
A judge, however, shut that down.
But the timing of Kendu’s alleged ailments is wildly questionable. Whether it’s coincidence or not, folks can’t help but point out Isaacs’ recent “hospitalization” comes as Mary’s career hits new heights.
All thanks to her role in Netflix’s Mudbound, the singer turned actress just picked up the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival AND is expected to snag a Golden Globe this Sunday for her role as Florence Jackson.
One Twitter user wrote, “No sympathy for cheaters and extortionists.” Another user commented, “#KenduIsaacs is full of sh*t.”
What’s ironic is that the taxing divorce drove the emotion out of Blige and onto the big screen; hence delivering an award winning performance. “I was able to give her [character] all of the heaviness and the sadness and the terrible thing I was dealing with it,” she told prior to the film’s release HipHollywood.
So we are curious: Is Kendu really sick? Or is this a ploy to steal Blige’s spotlight?
