R&B singer Mary J Blige lost the latest round in her acrimonious divorce battle with estranged husband Kendu Isaacs. A Judge ordered the “Not Gon’ Lie” singer to pay Isaacs $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support.
The amount is a fraction of the $129,319 a month that Isaacs originally asked the judge to force Blige to pay. In court documents Blige accused her former manager of using her to support his parents, girlfriend, and his children from a previous relationship.
“I’m not responsible for supporting his parents and his children from another relationship, which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses,” Blige stated in her divorce petition.
But the judge bought Isaacs’ argument that he was entitled to the lavish lifestyle he had become accustomed to as the husband of an R&B star.
The judge also ordered Blige to pay spousal support retroactively, dating back to when she first filed for a divorce, and his legal fees for a total of $235,000.
In addition to the spousal support, Blige and Isaacs also owe the IRS millions in back taxes.
This might be a good time for Blige to file for bankruptcy to reorganize her finances.
Scottie Pippen is divorcing his
trophy wife of 19 years, Larsa Pippen. Pippen filed the papers in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida courthouse earlier this week.
The 51-year-old Chicago Bulls legend has 7 children — 4 with his soon to be ex-wife Larsa and three from previous relationships.
Larsa, a 42-year-old Chicago native who met Pippen at the height of his career is ready to move on to greener pastures. As rumor has it, that she cheated on Pippen with rapper “Future” (pictured with him below). Larsa being best friends with Kim Ho-Dashian and apart of her girlfriend squad, it’s no secret she pointed her best friend in the direction of new money and marketable stability.
The real kicker is, Larsa released the following statement in the media, then asked for privacy… why do some Ho-related celebrities do that?
Us Weekly — Larsa’s rep issued a statement to Us Weekly. “After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage,” the statement said. “Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their four beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect. … She would like to thank everyone for their understanding and kindly ask for privacy from the media during this difficult time of transition for her family.”
Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after she caught him cheating with his sexy co-star, a well-placed source told The NY Post’s Page Six on Tuesday.
Social media is having a field day with Jennifer Aniston memes. If you recall, Angelina Jolie was the woman who came between her and Jennifer’s then-husband Brad Pitt.
Jolie and Pitt tied the knot in 2014 after 10 years together. But it’s over now.
Karma is a brew best served hot and sweet.
Another woman is the real reason behind the sensational breakup of what many considered Hollywood’s most solid marriage.
Pitt, 52, was rumored to be creeping with his co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, while filming the war drama “Allied” in London.
“She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was,” said the source.
Angelina suspected he was cheating with his co-star because she knew how he cheated with her when she was his costar. It’s always the same story, how you get him is how you lose him.
Actress Tasha Smith is headed to divorce court after just ‘5’ years of marriage.
A judge ordered the Why Did I Get Married star to pay her ex-husband, Keith Douglas, $7,000 a month in spousal support — that’s in addition to the $50,000 she was ordered to give him last year.
It’s too bad Tasha didn’t pay attention to the warning signs of Dopamine addiction. She could have saved herself the heartache and pain of watching her now ex-husband spend her hard earned cash on other men.
From gossip tabloid TMZ.com:
Actress Tasha Smith will think twice about getting hitched again — the now ex-husband she calls a glorified assistant just scored a fat settlement in their divorce.
According to the court docs … the “Why Did I Get Married?” star has been ordered to hand over nearly $7k/month in spousal support to Keith Douglas. That’s on top of the $50k she already shelled out to him in December.
As we previously reported … their rocky marriage took some crazy twists, including mutual restraining orders, and both saying they feared for their lives.
The settlement wasn’t a total loss for Tasha … Keith had to give back her Mercedes.
Barbara Winfrey was married to Oprah Winfrey’s father, Vernon Winfrey for 14 years and after 14 years of marriage and Vernon cheating on Barbara with a known prostitute name “one tooth” the couple both filed for divorce. Unbeknownst to Barbara, Vernon complained to Oprah and Stedman how he was unhappy in his marriage.
Now Barbara is telling all in the media of how Oprah never like her; dealt with her from a distance, Oprah’s loveless relationship with Stedman Graham, her controlling and unhealthy friendship with best friend Gayle King and how Oprah’s brand is caring, giving and compassion, while she is privately; the complete opposite. Barbara states that all of Oprah’s relationships are secured with Confidentiality Agreements, based on Oprah’s terms of control.
Barbara’s gripe is, she’s now being evicted from the home she shared with Vernon Winfrey although Vernon moved out of the home before filing for divorce and Oprah’s name is on the deed to the home because it was gifted to Barbara and Oprah’s father after they married. The home Barbara shared with Vernon was purchased by Oprah’s Company, Overground Railroad LLC. So in all actuality, it was a gift in the meantime and as long as Barbara and Oprah’s father Vernon, remained husband and wife.
Oprah has since purchased another home for her father and has evicted Barbara (pictured here), giving her until May 29th to vacate the premises. Barbara is devastated because this was a home she thought was theirs.
It’s a real sob story on Barbara’s part however, Oprah is a business woman by right and a billionaire by design and I don’t blame her one bit for protecting every aspect of her relationships because where money is involved everyone has a motive.
