Mary J. Blige’s rollercoaster divorce

Law Offices of Stephanie L. Mahdavi A Professional Law Corporation Divorce

The hip-hop star has come a long way in her career. She has influenced countless of artists, won numerous grammy awards, and multi-platinum albums. Overcoming the pain of childhood abuse and her addiction struggles, she managed to pull herself out of this negative environment and became one of the most diverse vocalists of all times. But Mary is still facing some major obstacles along the way with her 12-year marriage recently coming to an end. She is hopeful and moving forward on a positive note in spite of her ex-husband’s attempts to steal her joy and her income.

Why file for divorce?

This is the question of the century. It just happens. It’s as natural as the air that reaches your lungs. It’s a chapter in your life that simply ends. Ms. Blige embraced the change and she seems to be doing okay. Her new album ‘Strength Of A Woman’ will hit the shelves by the end of April this year.

The process

In her own words: “No one wants to go through this, and this is hard.” It truly is even in the best of circumstances. Mary’s ex is requesting a monthly amount of $130,000 on spousal support plus many other fees. Kendu Isaacs was terminated from his employment as Mary’s manager/producer and left with nothing. These types of cases need a Westlake Village divorce attorney to navigate all the complexities involved.

Domestic violence and cheating

The couple is known for having fights in public. Isaac was also accused of cheating on Ms. Blige back in 2012. Apparently, he was still married when he started dating Mary. She was still vulnerable and trying to overcome her addiction and abusive past. Kendu had fired Mary’s team, including her sister, and hire his family to manage Ms. Blige’s career. It’s being a bit difficult financially for Mary. She owes about $3.4 million to the IRS and failed to pay a personal loan she took with her husband. It’s just risky for artists and their managers. Some days are good and some not so good.

A new start

Sometimes you just have to start all over again. Keep trying like Mary did and things will eventually fall into place. Let it go and let it heal. Focus on you and your health. Create a positive environment and surround yourself with positive people. Do you remember those things you use to enjoy before you got married? Do them again and allow time do its best.
