American singer, Mary J. Blige, has been ordered by a court to pay her ex-husband temporary spousal support of $30,000 per month.

According to TMZ, the singer will also have to pay retroactive support dating back to September, as well as his attorney’s fees, which comes to $235k.

The 46-year-old multiple award-winning singer had filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Martin Isaacs, in 2016.

Martin, who is also the singer’s former manager, had originally asked for $130, 000 as spousal support, but she fought against this.

The court, however, admitted Martin was entitled to some money to accommodate the standard of living he was used to while married to her.

The court added that Mary and Martin were living beyond their means during their marriage and still have millions of dollars to pay back in taxes.

    Why is it ok for the man to pay spousal support but it’s not ok for the woman to pay. I thought you people wanted equal rights in all things even in law. Have we not seen women who cheated on their husband and still got supported by the law? You people should swerve jare

    Ok, I don’t know about the cheating part and what the law provides concerning that…. but ON A GENERAL NOTE…as far as a man receiving spousal support, I don’t see what’s wrong…. its d same argument both ways. Mary was pretty much his career, and she benefitted from that. so pls let us stop this sentiment ridden arguments. I heard a lady on radio saying he is shameless…I laughed, I was like sweetheart, money has no emotions/shame or gender…the earlier you remove sentiments, the better…..In Mary’s shoes, most men would have started covering their financial tracks years ago, before agreeing to divorce…..but women will be praying and hoping.

    If we’re going to argue that Harrison Ford and Kobi’s wives were entitled to over $70million or so, for being partners for X number of years, then please let us just start accepting that its the way it will happen when tables turn. Abi what makes a wife more special than husband? Many of us will run to courts and not even wed in church, yet if divorce comes, you want to suddenly hide under biblical man-as-provider- standards….. Nah brah. It is painful- yes….but it is what it is under the law.

    This is what prenups are for…and men know how to insist on signing prenups, but a richer woman will be doing suegbe forming soulmate/loyal lover….please pull paper for bros to sign so we can all sleep well.

    Oya, bye….I can see the insults coming already, and I am hoping to understand the arguments.

    She should have had a pre-nup. Simple as that.
