MARY J. BLIGE’S EX CLAIMS DIVORCE LED TO HOSPITALIZATIONJanuary 4, 2018
There’s more drama in Mary J. Blige‘s divorce.
The R&B singer’s estranged husband Kendu Isaacs is now claiming that stress from the proceedings caused him to be hospitalized.
In court documents obtained by The Blast, Blige’s ex alleges he “has experienced physical manifestations of stress and emotional distress from this matter, which has caused him to become hospitalized.”

In addition, Isaacs – who used to be Blige’s manager – claims he can’t pay his rent, is not “employable” and would be “destitute” without the Grammy winner’s financial help.
Isaacs currently receives $30K a month from Blige and had wanted it upped to $65K a month, but a judge denied his petition. The exes are due in court in March.
Blige and Isaacs married in 2003 and announced their split in July 2016.
On a positive note, Blige is up for two awards for her work in Mudbound at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
