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.
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, Beyoncé 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.
