Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs is demanding $110,000 per month in spousal support from estranged wife Mary J. Blige.
The 49-year-old believes he should be able to continue the ‘lavish’ lifestyle he enjoyed before Mary filed for divorce. He’s asking Mary to cough up cash for meals, a housekeeper, and a $1,000 allowance for new clothes.
He also wants Mary to surrender an additional $10,000 per month to help take care of his parents and kids from his previous relationship.

In October Isaacs made a similar request for $130,000 in monthly spousal support.
But in the latest paperwork, filed to the Los Angeles Superior Court last week and seen exclusively by DailyMail.com, Isaacs seems to have dropped $20,000 of expenses, cutting requests for help paying $8,000 for a private chef and $3,200 for a personal trainer, as well as other reductions.
The paperwork stated Blige fired her husband, who was her personal manager throughout their marriage, and left him with ‘no source of income’.
And according to the latest documents Isaacs is now seeking court intervention after he says he met with Blige in late February in an attempt to try to settle the case amicably, but nothing was resolved.
In total he’s asking for $110,000 a month in spousal support, a $95,000 contribution to his attorney’s fees and a $52,000 contribution to his forensic accounting fees.
The filing states: ‘Mr. Isaacs was Ms Blige’s personal manager for more than one decade and throughout the entire marriage. Mr. Isaacs has negotiated practically every deal on behalf of Ms. Blige, and based upon Ms Blige’s income over the years, their relationship has been financially lucrative. During the marriage, Mr. Isaacs was compensated 10% of all gross income received by Ms Blige.’ Read more
