Mary J Blige’s Divorce Trial Was Set To Begin Monday
Mary J. Blige settled her nasty divorce just in time to enjoy the Oscars without the case hanging over her head.
Blige was scheduled to be in court Monday to face off against estranged husband Kendu Isaacs in their contentious divorce trial.
But on Friday, and at the last minute, both sides agreed to settle the case out of court, a court official confirmed to BOSSIP.
Blige, 47, was nominated for the Academy Award’s Best Supporting Actress for her role as Florence, the matriarch of a sharecropping family in Netflix’s critically acclaimed “Mudbound.” She lost out to Allison Janney, who played Tonya Harding’s toxic mother in “I, Tonya” at Sunday’s awards, but still gave a stirring performance of the movie’s title song, “A Mighty River.”
Between prepping for the Oscars, the awards show itself and the numerous after parties that she was likely invited to, Blige likely needed a break from all the drama surrounding her split so she could focus on the biggest moment of her acting career.
The move to settle also means that their dirty laundry wont be aired at trial.
The settlement terms weren’t immediately available Monday.
Blige filed for divorce in 2016, accusing her now former husband and manager of cheating and misappropriating more than $400,000 of her money on dubious “business expenses.” A judge has ruled that Blige must pay Isaacs $30,000 a month in temporary support.
Isaccs wanted alimony and half of her income during their 13 year union, and claims that despite his “aggressive” efforts, he hasn’t been able to work since she fired him in July 2016.
