Mary J. Blige is asking the court to deny her ex and former manager, Martin "Kendu" Isaacs, spousal support.

E! News obtained the divorce documents in which the singer declares the couple's prenuptial agreement waivers any spousal support, noting, "My success as an entertainer has nothing to do with [Isaacs]. I was successful when I met him and have continued to enjoy success, although there have certainly been ups and downs."

In the documents, Blige also claims Isaacs had been misappropriating money for two years, spending $420,000 in travel charges for hotels and airfare that were not related to her business and did not include her. "I just recently learned this information," she wrote.

Blige noted that she made no money from the European leg of her recent tour and has been struggling with debt lately.

"[Isaacs] suggests we lived a lavish lifestyle and in fact, we over spent and we are in significant debt," she explained. "We owe millions of dollars in taxes and have significant advances that have to be recouped by record companies."

She claimed Isaacs also hasn't been helping her financially when it comes to a New Jersey home they share as well as a storage facility that holds personal property. She also says he hasn't returned a Grammy Award to her as well as three leased cars that were prepaid by her.

Furthermore, Blige states that, though she's no longer responsible for supporting his parents and his children from a previous marriage, her income was used for that during their marriage rather than his.

Blige filed for divorce from Isaacs in July after 13 years of marriage.

At the time, her rep told E! News, "Ms. Blige is saddened to say 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 & 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."
