For 1st Time Mary J Vents At Essence Fest Over $$ She Now Pays Kendu & She’s Pissed!

Posted On : July 4, 2017

Okay ILOSM family, what other way do we know Mary J. to be, other than real? Go ‘head and think about it, we’ll wait. If you’re like us, here at ILOSM, then you probably can’t seem to pinpoint that answer because there is none. Mary J. Blige should officially make her middle name ‘real’ since real is the only way she knows how to rock and we’re not mad at that one bit. Mary’s recent performance at Essence Festival 2017 was no different.

Kendu Isaacs and Mary J. Blige

Most of us been watching the unfortunate divorce drama of Mary and her soon-to-be-ex-husband of 12 years, Kendu Isaacs, unfold all over social media and television. Mary has blasted dude for cheating on her and her fans have clobbered him for demanding $130K in spousal support from her. While Kendu has recently untapped his mute button to publicly blast Mary J. for bashing him during her Soul Train Awards performance. He then threatened to tell the “truth” about their marriage, although he never quite specified what was untrue about it. However, if you missed what Kendu said, here it is…


Well, apparently Mary J. couldn’t care less about what Kendu is saying because yet again, she took to the stage to slam the hell outta her husband. During her Essence performance, she spoke out for the first time since the court ordered her to pay Kendu $30K a month in temporary spousal support a few weeks ago. Check out what she vented about onstage below…
Mary started off by saying:

“How is it that somebody gets to cheat and destroy everybody’s life but I’ve got to pay for it? That ain’t fair!”

She then spoke directly to the ladies about Kendu and how he tried to compare her to a mediocre female, while also admitting a shortcoming of her own:

“For me ladies, I’m a little crazy, maybe a lot, but I’m more selfish with my relationships. And what I will not appreciate is my man coming home comparing me to Suzy on the job. […] Don’t ever compare me to nobody because there’s only one Mary J. Blige out there.”

And to wrap up her vent session, she gave the fellas a tip on how to treat their women:

“You can’t have two queens.”

The crowd of course went wild and Mary proceeded to give a helluva performance. Y’all know Mary has always performed better when she was going through something.

Mary J.’s new album, Strength of a Woman, is all about the pain she’s gone through during her marriage and pending divorce from Kendu. So as far as Kendu wanting her to stop telling her side of the story, well, it doesn’t look like he’s gonna get that wish. The only thing he can probably do now is play the same game- if he doesn’t want to be seen as a money grubbin,’ cheating husband- and that is to speak out and tell his side…or forever hold his peace and let the chips fall where they may. Best wished to them both.
