How a lot is Mary J Blige price? The singer reveals she went on tour to assist pay for ex Kendu Isaac’s alimony

Mary J. Blige recently revealed to radio host Angie Martinez that her latest single Rent Money was inspired by her experience with divorce. In the interview, she opened up about the origins of the song, which explains how she had to tour to support her divorce from Kendu Isaacs.

The release of her new album, Good Morning Gorgeous, and her appearance at Super Bowl LVI alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent and Eminem have opened a new chapter for the famous singer and actress.

She explained to Martinez:

“rent money” is [about] when I first got divorced. I had to give up all those alimony payments and I had no more money to give because he spent it all. So I had to go, you know, I had to go on tour and make all the money back to pay the alimony.”

Bilge paid $30,000 a month in temporary spousal support to her ex, Kendu Isaacs, between 2016 and 2018.

New York native The Yonkers recently spoke to Elle and shared how she began to build her confidence while still married and this inspired the title track of her new album.

She stated:

“During Mudbound and when I was married I felt so down. I had to give myself the biggest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up… I would do it in the morning because that’s the time when your hair isn’t done and you don’t have makeup on. You’re just sort of really dealing with yourself.”
