Mary J. Blige demands ex returns Grammy
Mary J. Blige is demanding her estranged husband returns her Grammy Award and two cars.
The ‘No More Drama’ hitmaker is the midst of messy divorce from Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs and claims he hasn’t given her back one of the Grammys she won as well as other "achievement awards", a Range Rover and Mercedes C300.
Documents obtained by TMZ reveal Mary is requesting these all to be sent back to her but will let her ex-husband keep the Mercedes SL550, which is said to cost around $80,000 new.
Meanwhile, the 45-year-old singer previously admitted she has "finally got her life back" after she split from Martin.
She said: "I’ve finally got my life back. My fans have saved me. I have to keep going for them … I chose life. At anytime we all go through dark times. You might lose something when you make a positive choice and lose something when you make a negative choice, so for me it’s best to just lose whatever you’re going to lose to get your life back.
"My fans have saved me too. It’s only when you hear people’s testimonies that ‘you saved my life’ or ‘helped me get out of an abusive relationship’ that you realise going through these hard times makes you stronger."
However, by Mary’s own admission, the divorce has been very "hard" and painful for her.
She added: "I’m in the thick of it. I’m in the middle of a divorce. It’s just how hard life is. It’s the pain. Not even knowing someone that you thought you knew for years is horrible …
"But there’s hope in it as well, because I have to keep the joy so I can live and survive. I can’t just die in all this sadness. In spite of my pain and crying and releasing everything on stage to my fans, I kept my joy and that’s what keeps me going. Life is real."
