One of the most widely recognized artists today, Mary J Blige filed for divorce from former hubby Martin “Kendu” Issac in July 2016. This was after 12 years of marriage, and many fights in between which ultimately lead to her leaving.
She ultimately paid her ex-husband $30,000 a month in spousal support for two years during the proceedings and settled for an undisclosed amount after. We can only imagine what it was, but with her net worth of $20 million, it had to be less than that.
We thought these two would last, but like everyone on this list, it wasn’t meant to be. Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari seemed cute when they were together on “Just Cavallari”, her own reality tv show, but apparently, under the surface, things were much worse.
They were both stubborn people and butted heads constantly. The only time they were on the same page was in front of their kids. The ink is still drying after Kristin filed for divorce in 2020, but knowing how much they have made together as a couple we can only imagine the numbers that the settlement will become.
After 22 years of marriage, Wendy Williams filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter in 2019. She cited the reason for the divorce as, “Kevin fathering a child with his mistress."
The divorce got ugly and now the pair only speak to each other when necessary. He is only worth $5 million but as a tv executive, we are sure she got all the money she could.
Stars of “The Real Housewives of New York City” Jules and Michael Wainstein filed for divorce in 2016. This came after she accused him of having an affair. This divorce turned ugly and Jules was arrested during the settlement discussions.
We are glad they finalized the papers in October of that year because we can only imagine how much more ugly it would have gotten.
It seems that love is hard and even harder when it’s broadcasted to the world. That is what happened when Yolanda and David Foster from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” divorced in 2016.
While the split was amicable and Yolanda wishes the best for David, she still had to move out of their house. They did have a prenup so not a lot was lost.
