Oh Kendu. Kendu, Kendu, Kendu.

Why are you allegedly being such a pill to Mary J. Blige? First, there was the cheating allegations with her now former protégé Starshell. Next up, we have the obscenely high amount of requested support money  - $110,000 a month. A MONTH. Wow!

Plus his reported threats to turn Mary into the IRS if she didn’t pay up.

And other questionable actions, including issuing public declarations of love for someone who was likely already way over it.

The duo parted ways in July 2016 after 13 years of marriage, with Mary’s representative saying, “Ms. Blige is saddened to say [that] it is true that she has filed for divorce, saying sometimes things don’t work how we hoped they would… but, there is a divine plan and a reason for everything. Mary will continue writing and working on her album, which is due out later this year along with her world tour. She thanks and appreciates her fans for their support and love through this very difficult emotional time”.

Mary hasn’t been quiet about any of this, by the way. 

Now it seems that their divorce seems to be actively affecting another party who was once close to them both; Kendu’s daughter (Mary J. Blige's stepdaughter), Briana Latrise.

Briana recently broke her silence about her dad's divorce AND where exactly her relationship with Mary stands now. And it seems that everything is not super, super swell these days.

"Me and Mary, I thought we had, like, a real thing," she says in a video snippet snatched from an episode of Growing Up Hip Hop. "I love her, and I get it. She's going through things, so she probably can't talk to me right now and I respect that, but to me, it's almost like I lost somebody."

In case u missed the's @brianalatrise birthday today!!!! Follow her and tell her happy bday!!!! Catch her on Growing Up Hip Hop airing on #wetv...right now!!! #GUHH #brianalatrise

"I haven't heard from you since you filed [for divorce]," she said “to Mary”. "It almost makes me feel like, 'Did I have something to do with it?' 'cause she's not talking to me. What did I do?"

That’s pretty sad.
