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!”

It Happened! Disney-Fox Merger Returns X-Men & Fantastic Four to Marvel!

avengers vs x-men disney to buy fox

Today, Rupert Murdoch—Fox’s executive chairman—expressed his confidencein the acquisition’s potential to strengthen both companies:

“We are extremely proud of all that we have built at 21st Century Fox, and I firmly believe that this combination with Disney will unlock even more value for shareholders as the new Disney continues to set the pace in what is an exciting and dynamic industry.”

News of the deal comes after early reports that Fox proper was looking to unload 21st Century Fox in favor of focusing more on news and sports, its two other largest business endeavors. For Fox, this deal means a rather hefty payday but for Marvel, it’s more of a long-overdue homecoming.

For years now, some of Marvel Entertainment’s most iconic characters that first put the comics publisher on the map back in the 70s have been locked out of the MCU because of deals made during the 90s in which Marvel sold off the film rights to properties like the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Deadpool. Now, Marvel can get to work on changing that, but it doesn’t mean that it will or even should happen anytime soon. Properties like Avatar, The Simpsons, FX Networks and National Geographic will also fold into Disney’s portfolio according to the official release.

While Fox’s X-Men and Fantastic Four movies weren’t always particularly good, the studio was finally in the process of beginning to carve out a rather distinctive and honestly refreshing voice in the superhero movie space with films like Logan, Deadpool, and The New Mutants. The sequels to the latter two movies are still due to be released on schedule (no word on the X-23-focused Logan followup) but there’s no telling what Marvel plans to do with its new toys now that it has them.

Side note, the true shade is the merger did not include Fox News. Clearly Disney has no time for the bullshit! #NoAlternativeFactsHere. Now transitioning on to better news, this means Storm and Black Panther will be an item, we may get that Avengers vs. X-Men movie, and above all else all of our favorite Marvel heroes get screen time together. We are just wondering how the two universes will merge. Maybe the Reality Stone, one of the Infinity Stones will play a part in making this happen? This a good look and an amazing business move Disney move! You have fanboys everywhere bowing in thanks!

2016 may have been the year of Celebrity Deaths, but 2017 will go down as the year of sexual harassment and allegations of sexual assault. The number of actors, writers, director, and media personalities on this list of wrongdoing seems to be growing by the day.

We would say that X-Men director Bryan Singer is the newest name of the pervy, creepy, sexually inappropriate list, but this ain’t his first at the rapey rodeo.

Back in 2014 we reported that Singer had been accused of drugging and raping a 17-year-old aspiring actor in Hollyweird.

Today, according to DailyMail, Singer has AGAIN been accused of raping a 17-year-old boy, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, aboard a yacht back in 2003.

Singer denies all accusations, but the details are still disgusting and disturbing…

It claims that Singer offered to take a then-17 Guzman on a tour of the yacht, but when they got to one of the rooms, the director allegedly forced the teen to the floor, shoved his crotch against Guzman’s face and demanded he perform oral sex.

Guzman goes onto say in the lawsuit, that Singer then pulled out his penis and forced it into his mouth, causing him to choke as he begged him to stop.

Singer allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on Guzman, who repeatedly told him to stop, before he anally raped him, according to the lawsuit.

Naturally, Bryan is denying these accusations and his representative has come forward with a statement:

Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end. Cesar Sanchez-Guzman apparently claims that he did not remember this alleged incident from 2003 until now. Significantly, when Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events.

Yikes, yikes, and YIKES! Hollywood is HOT with these nasty allegations. Somebody get these execs under control!

Trey Songz is being sued for $50,000 for allegedly attacking a fan inside Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club.

According to the fan, she paid to meet Trey and things went left when she tried to take a picture in the parking lot. The court docs say when she tried to take the pic he attacked her — slapping her phone out of her hand and into her face, breaking her glasses.

The woman’s suing Trey and the venue, claiming it knew he had a tendency “toward violence and negative interaction with the public.”

Trey pleaded guilty to 2 misdemeanors after tearing up the stage at a show just months before this alleged incident.

We know Trey has had his own run-ins with people in the past, but none of them have been fan-related. We will keep you posted, we are sure there is more to this story than meets the eye.
