MARY J BLIGE DENIES HITTING HUSBAND
Grammy-winning singer Mary J Blige has denied reports she punched her husband in the face because he was flirting with a waitress.
Blige was said to have drawn blood when she hit Kendu Isaacs at a party at New York club M2 to celebrate the release of her new album, Stronger With Each Tear.
But a spokeswoman for the 38-year-old singer said she was trying to break up a fight between Isaacs, her husband of six years, and her brother.
“Mary was not fighting with her husband,” Karynne Tencer told the New York Daily News. “Her husband and her brother got into an altercation that turned into a fight. Mary went to break up the fight.”
She added: “Nobody was bleeding.”
It was reported that security hustled the couple into the next door club, Pink, which was closed, and a witness told the New York Post: “She was yelling at him, 'What are you gonna do, Chris Brown me?'”
But Tencer insisted: “She never mentioned Chris Brown. Mary and Kendu went home together.
“They're as happy as can be.”
