Blige filed for divorce in 2016 after 13 years of marriage to Martin "Kendu" Isaacs, who also is her former manager. According to documents, Blige argued that the couple's prenuptial agreement waived any spousal support. However, a judge ruled that Blige must pay the monthly support retroactively to September. That, along with her attorney fees, will cost the singer more than $235,000, TMZ reported.

Isaacs originally sought $129,319 per month, TMZ reported.

People reported that Blige claimed in court documents that Isaacs spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on "travel charges" that involved his girlfriend, not her.
