Sometimes when it rains, it pours, and apparently, it’s a full fledge hurricane in the personal life of Mary J. Blige right about now. In the midst of going through her bitter divorce from her husband, Kendu Isaacs, Mary is unfortunately having major tax trouble yet again.

According to DailyMail, Ms.’What’s The 411′ owes a whopping $6.5 MILLION to Uncle Sam! Ain’t that something?!! It’s being reported that on August 8, 2017, Mary filed an Income and Expense Declaration in a Los Angeles, Cali. court. This comes after she was recently ordered by a judge to shell out $30K in temporary spousal support to Kendu, who initially requested $130K monthly.

Below are the details of what Mary says she now earns monthly and the new court docs that have been filed.

Via DM: [Mary J. Blige] owes ‘unpaid back taxes of approximately $6.5 million for the years 2008 through 2016.’ Documents obtained exclusively by, reveal the star earns $326,930 a month – with royalties and earnings from her production company being her main source of cash. The singer made a note of her debt after reporting a change in income due to a ‘large reduction in my royalties’ over the past year. Expense records show she currently pays $14,000 a month for her Los Angeles rental and $2,340 for her two Mercedes-Benz. Her monthly expenses also include mortgage interest, insurance, and real estate taxes for her three homes across New York and New Jersey. Court papers also show the recording artist claimed the former couple’s estate is ‘underwater’ to the tune of $10 million and Isaacs contributes nothing to expenses and upkeep.

It was also reported that in 2015, Mary J. listed for sale, her 8-bedroom, 10-bathroom, Saddle River, New Jersey mansion, but at this point, it’s still on the market. According to MailOnline, ‘it was listed as “un-rentable,” along with her property in Cresskill which has been boarded up by the city and is in a state of “disrepair.”‘

Currently, Mary’s and Kendu’s divorce proceedings still haven’t been hashed out and Mary J. is still performing and blasting Kendu at her concerts, for his financial demands and alleged cheating.

So far, Kendu has remained mostly silent about Mary’s accusations that he cheated on her and spent $419K on expensive trips with his alleged mistress. However, he did publicly threaten to expose “the truth” behind their marriage if Mary doesn’t stop dragging him through the mud in the media. What exactly is “the truth” Kendu’s referring to? I guess only time will tell. Best wishes to both of them though…a divorce after 12 years of marriage is never easy.
