Mary J. Blige has been ordered to pay her estranged husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs $30,000/month in temporary spousal support, according to various reports.

The singer, 46, filed for divorce in July 2016 after 12 years of marriage. Despite Blige’s attempts to argue that their prenuptial agreement waived any spousal support, she’ll have to pay Isaacs dating back to September, according to E! Online.

Isaacs originally requested for $129,319 per month, but a judge ordered a lot less be paid.

In April, Blige claimed in court documents obtained by PEOPLE that Isaacs spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on “travel charges” that involved his girlfriend, not her.

Blige also claimed that Isaacs drives a Mercedes that she pre-paid the lease on and that he refuses to turn over possession of her “Grammy and other achievement awards.”

The singer said she had long been the only bread-winner in the family and that she is burdened with more than $10,000,000 in debt.

While the couple does not have any children together, Blige has been a stepmother to Kendu’s children – Briana, Jordan and Nas – from a former relationship since they wed in 2003.

“I am not responsible for supporting [Martin’s] parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses,” Blige stated in the court documents.

TMZ first reported the news.
