Mary J. Blige Punches Her Husband In The Face

Mary J. Blige reportedly punched her husband Kendu Isaacs in his face at her album release party Tuesday night.¬† What sparked the alleged fight is not really clear. According to the NY Daily News and NY Post, Kendu was paying a little too much attention to a waitress ticking off Mary. The homie Necole Bitchie reports that eyewitnesses say it was because Kendu had Mary’s brother kicked out of the VIP section.

NY Post:

Mary J. Blige punched husband Kendu Isaacs in the face at her record release party at club M2 Tuesday night. The singer slugged Isaacs, drawing blood, after she thought he was flirting with a waitress. “She turned to him and was screaming, ‘You’re not going to ruin my night,’ ” our witness says. “They got up in each other’s faces before someone tried to separate them, at which point she shoved the guy aside, pulled back and popped [Isaacs] in the face.” The source said Blige, Isaacs and their entourage were whisked through a door to the attached club Pink, which was closed. Our witness relates, “She was yelling at him, ‘What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?’ Four of her bodyguards and two of the club’s kept them apart.” Isaacs was kicked out. Blige went to the bathroom to fix her hair and makeup, but soon fled, creating an uncomfortable scene for partygoers Jay-Z, Beyonc√© and Busta Rhymes. Her rep said only, “People lie and don’t know what they’re talking about.”

NY Daily News:

Hip-Hop diva Mary J. Blige smacked her husband for checking out a waitress at her CD release party this week and warned him, “You ain’t going Chris Brown on me,” witnesses said.

A friend of Blige suggested that some “haters” at the club may have “misunderstood a joke Mary and Kendu were sharing.”

The “No More Drama” songstress lashed out at hubby Kendu Isaacs at the Tuesday night party at the M2 Ultralounge in Chelsea, witnesses said.

One partygoer told the Daily News that the 38-year-old Grammy winner flew into a jealous rage because Isaacs was paying too much attention to a waitress at the club.

“Mary hauled off and smacked him,” the source said.

Blige then warned Isaacs not to even think about retaliating. “She said, ‘You ain’t going to go Chris Brown on me, are you?'” according to a source.

Brown beat up ex-girlfriend Rihanna in June after she caught him reading a text from an old flame. The now-infamous incident led to Brown pleading guilty to felony assault charges.

Blige, who is promoting her new album “Stronger With Each Tear,” denied Wednesday night that the incident with her husband took place.

“They’re as happy as can be,” spokeswoman Karynne Tencer said. “They’re spending the holidays together with their three children. Everything’s great.”

Can you imagine the uproar if Kendu had punched Mary in the face? It would have been on the front page of the papers. Domestic violence is wrong no matter who the aggressor is, man or woman. That’s all.

    Wow!! This is something. I love Mary J. I am proud of her overcoming drug and alcohol abuse. This man, her husband, Issacs, helped her do that. She took several steps back with this. I am sadly disappointed that she allowed her anger to ruin a celebration for her achievements. I am even more saddened that she used a tragedy, like Rhianna’s, to justify what she did to her husband. Its not right for a man to put his hands on a woman and it’s also not right for a woman to put her hands on a man either. No matter the circumstances. As far as the public goes, I really hope they are working on this issue behind closed doors properly.

  • Those of us who are Mary J know that this is most likely to NOT occur. She is a fantastic woman who happens to have a fantastic husband. He is not the type of man to even think about putting Mary in that situation. So…those that believe this, I am sorry to say that you are ignorant for believing the tabloids (once again) prior to either one of them relasing any type of response…I send out an apology on behalf of whomever may have started this maliciuos rumor in order to gain some type of profit in any form. We all know the ups and downs in Mary’s life. Does she really need this type of negativity??? Let’s all try to remember that we should focus on the positives and stick to our own business. We would be so lucky to imagine having a marriage such as Mary & Isaac’s.
