Mary J. Blige is accused of using her failing marriage as a platform to release new music and make a ton of cash, and her estranged husband wants a piece of the action.
Martin "Kendu" Isaacs says he is on the path to becoming destitute after breaking up with the R&B legend.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Isaacs says he has been unemployed since the divorce case was filed, and claims Blige is trashing him in the press, hindering his ability to get a job.
He points out the singer has released two songs, "Love Yourself" and "Set Me Free" which he says are now known as her "divorce songs." He says Blige has seen a surge in success as a result of the breakup.
Meanwhile, Isaacs says since leaving the $8 million he shared with Blige, he's shacking up in a 1,400 sq. ft. apartment in Los Angeles. He says he needs more money from Blige just to survive.
He's apparently done the math too ... he's asking for $65,000 per month, which he says should be a drop in the bucket for Blige, who he claims has $275,476 per month available for support payments.
