The R&B singer, who is in the midst of a bitter legal separation with Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs, filed an Income and Expense Declaration in a Los Angeles court on August 8, after she was given a temporary order to pay him $30,000 a month.

Blige, 46, filed for divorce from Isaacs in July last year, citing irreconcilable differences after nearly 13 years of marriage. Isaacs later demanded spousal support claiming the star left him with ‘no source of income.’

Documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, reveal the star earns $326,930 a month – with royalties and earnings from her production company being her main source of cash.

But the paperwork also showed Blige is in hock to Uncle Sam as she owes ‘unpaid back taxes of approximately $6.5 million for the years 2008 through 2016.’

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. 

In 2015, Blige put her eight-bedroom, ten-bathroom, Saddle River, New Jersey mansion up for sale, but it remains on the market.

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.’ 

Isaacs, on the other hand, who formerly served as Blige’s manager, had a gross monthly income of $43,977 based on commissions.

Following Blige’s divorce filing, he claimed his estranged wife’s decision to fire him has left him with ‘no source of income.’

In June, a judge ordered the 46-year-old to pay Isaacs temporary spousal support of $30,000 per month. He had originally sought $130,000.

He wanted the Grammy winning songstress to help him pay for expensive meals out, a housekeeper and to generally help him maintain his ‘lavish lifestyle.’ 

According to his court papers Isaacs specifically wanted Blige to cover the majority of the $116,250 he spends per month. He also wants her to cough up $5,000 a month to support his parents and $4,971 a month in support for his two children from a past relationship.

Blige had been fighting against his request, accusing him of blowing money on his ‘girlfriend’ and claiming it as business expenses. 

Earlier reports claim Isaacs had an affair with singer Starshell, who is Blige’s protege. 

In court documents, she accused him of taking $420,000 and using it for what he called ‘travel charges,’ over a two-year period insisting the money was not spent on business-related activities or on activities that involved her.

In a note to her ‘Gross Cash Flow Available for Support’ Blige’s accountant states: ‘However, based on the summary of travel expenses prepared by [Chief Financial Officers of ASCOT Travel Services], Martin Isaacs incurred $419,299 of travel expenses over the period of March 2014 through August 2016 which were deducted as business expenses.

‘Accordingly, we added these amounts back to taxable income since they are non recurring.’  

Previously TMZ had reported that Blige was ‘outraged’ over payment requests from her husband following their split, stating: ‘I am not responsible for supporting [Martin’s] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses.’

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. 

We will definitely be keeping Mary in our prayers. We echo Love B. Scott’s sentiments on a new album for her, but we wonder will she have to pay Kendu alimony too. Two words of recommendation for you Mary, “File Bankruptcy!”

Another day and another pregnant Kardashian! It looks like in 2018 the Kardashian-Jenner Clan will be setting the world’s population a new high as Kourtney Kardashian joins her younger sisters Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, and Kim Kardashian in “new baby-hood!”

Yep, Kourtney is  allegedly pregnant AGAIN, and not by Scott Disick, but by her current boyfriend Younes Benjima!

“She was thrilled to learn she was expecting,” a source told Life & Style exclusively. However, for now, Kourtney and her boyfriend of one year Younes Bendjima are only telling close family and friends. “She loves being part of a large family and having so many siblings,” the insider adds, “and she wants the same for Penelope, Mason, and Reign.”

Kourtney, 38, has made it very clear she wanted more kids — even after her split from longtime boyfriend Scott Disick. “I would have more. I could see myself with six kids,” Kourtney told Cosmopolitan magazine. “I just don’t know what’s in God’s plan.” She does know that Younes, 24, is the perfect dad-to-be.

“She needs a man who will be both present and sober,” the source explained. “With his charming personality and intelligence, Younes will make the perfect father.” However, it doesn’t look like Scott, 34, is happy about her new relationship. Life & Style previously reported that Scott was trying to ruin Kourt’s relationship with the young model.

“Scott will do anything to sabotage Kourtney’s relationship, including showing up wherever Kourtney and Younes are hanging out together,” the source said. “He’s also been asking around, trying to get some dirt on Younes so he can bring it back to Kourt and persuade her to dump him.” It doesn’t seem Kourtney is too concerned about her ex after she recently made her romance with Younes Instagram official on a couple’s vacation to Paris. 

We are really hoping this is another Kardashian rumor, but then again when any member of this family is involved there’s a hint of truth. If Kourtney is pregnat–CONGRATS! If not, she should look into getting her tubes tied. Kendall you in danger girl!

Kodak Black is facing new criminal charges. According to reports, the rapper was indicted on first-degree sexual conduct charges by a grand jury in South Carolina on Monday.

According to ABC affiliate WPDE, Kodak is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl back in February 2016 at the Comfort Inn & Suites. The assault allegedly happened after a show at the Treasure City nightclub. The teen first reported the incident to her school nurse in Richland County.

Kodak, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, was arrested for criminal sexual conduct last November and was released from the Florence County Detention Center on December 1st on a $100,000 bond.

If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.

 All we can say is yikes, yikes, we hope he has a good attorney, and YIKES again! We also want to ask is there something in the air? Kodak is not the only rapper charged with sexual impropriety. As you all know rap star Nelly was arrested (and released) for second-degree rape. Nelly has come forward to proclaim his innocence. Kodak, however, has yet to release an official statement. We really hope justice is served and if he is innocent it is proven. Until then we will be sure to keep you posted as this story develops. These rappers have really got to learn to keep it in their pants! Something has got to give!
What do you guys think though? Is Kodak Black innocent or guilty? Let us know in the comments’ section below!
