A court has ordered American singer, songwriter, model, record producer and actress, Mary J Blige, to pay her ex-husband temporary spousal support of $30,000 per month.
According to TMZ, the singer will also have to pay retroactive support dating back to September, as well as his attorney’s fees, which comes to $235k.
The 46-year-old multiple award winning diva had filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Martin Isaacs, in 2016 citing “irreconcilable differences”.
Isaac, who is also the singer’s former manager, had originally asked for $130, 000 as spousal support, but Mary J Blige fought against this, accusing him of infidelity and blowing money on his girlfriend and claiming it as business expenses.
Several reports identified the said girlfriend as 29-year-old singer, LaNeah Menzies, popularly known as Starshell.
Starshell was a former protege of Blige.
Earlier this year, Blige revealed in a radio interview that she filed for divorce after realizing Isaac didn’t want her anymore.
