Mary J. Blige has been going through a very public divorce from her long-time husband Kendu and it doesn’t look like this nightmare is going to end anytime soon.
It was reported today by PageSix that one of Mary’s proteges could be at the center of their divorce drama. Mary accused Kendu of spending more than $40,000 on his girlfriend, who has now been identified.
In addition to infidelity, Kendu was also cited as being verbally abusive to Mary, allegations in which Kendu’s camp are calling false. According to Robert Brandt, Mary’s lawyer, “Allegations that have been made about Kendu are false, unfair, mean-spirited and sad. The court can deal with it if it’s relevant. He’s a very pleasant guy. He’s not abusive. He’s not the one going to the press. His goal is to reach an amicable resolution with her and [have] this commentary cease and desist. It doesn’t help any of them. It’s misleading. He cares about Mary. He wants her to do well.”
Mary is chronicling her pain in her new album Strength of a Woman due out April 28th.
