Mary J. Blige could face a loss as she looks to unload her sprawling New Jersey estate, this as she faces paying back taxes to the IRS and providing $30,000 monthly in spousal support to her estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs.
According to Variety reports, Mary J. Blige is riding a well-deserved professional crest with two Oscar nominations — one for supporting actress and one for original song, both for the acclaimed Netflix period drama “Mudbound” — but the R&B/hip-hop icon is also looking at a heart-stopping financial loss on a lavish, gated estate in Saddle River, N.J., that she bought in 2008 for $12.3 million and now has for sale at just under $7 million. Even if Blige manages to land a full-price buyer, she’s still faced with a pocketbook-punishing loss of more than $5.3 million, not including carrying costs, improvement expenses and real estate fees…
The nine-time Grammy winner, who owes millions to the IRS in unpaid taxes and forks over $30,000 per month in spousal support to her estranged husband, Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, has long owned a substantially smaller, 6,200-square-foot contemporary residence in Cresskill, N.J., that she scooped up in 2001 for $1.95 million.
More disturbing details on Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz surfaces on social media.
According to reports, Before he allegedly committed one of the worst mass shootings in US history at a Parkland, Florida, high school on Wednesday, police officials say Cruz wrote social media posts so threatening he was twice reported to the FBI.
He hurled slurs at blacks and Muslims, and according to the Anti-Defamation League, had ties to white supremacists. He said he would shoot people with his AR-15 and singled out police and anti-fascist protesters as deserving of his vengeance. Just five months ago, he stated his aspiration to become a “professional school shooter.”
Former President Barack Obama made a passionate plea for gun safety laws in wake of the deadly school shooting in South Florida, reminding the country “we are not powerless” in the face of such violence.
At least 17 people were killed and more than a dozen wounded after a gunman opened fire in the hallways of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Wednesday. After a brief manhunt, local police arrested 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who has since been charged with 17 counts of pre-meditated murder.
“Caring for our kids is our first job,” Obama tweeted Thursday afternoon. “And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.”
Obama’s remarks came on the heels of an address from President Donald Trump, which did not once mention guns or any policy related to them.
