According to Entertainment Tonight, singer Mary J. Blige is officially divorced from long time estranged husband, Kendu Isaacs.

Court documents obtained by ET show that a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge signed off on the divorce on Wednesday.

The former couple settled their divorce out of court just three months ago. Blige filed for divorce from Isaacs in 2016 after 13 years of marriage.

Court documents obtained by PEOPLE in May 2017 showed Blige claimed Isaacs spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on “travel charges” that involved a woman he was having an affair with.

She also claimed her ex-husband drives a Mercedes that she pre-paid the lease on and that he refused to turn over possession of her “Grammy and other achievement awards.”

Blige was ordered to pay Isaacs 30,000 a month in temporary spousal support by a judge last June, along with $135,000 retroactively dating back to September 2016. She also had to pay $100,000 in legal fees and expert costs, which is less than the $167,000 Isaacs was asking for.

In September, the singer opened up to Variety, telling the magazine that although she was “doing OK” after their breakup, it takes a lot of work to “keep her spirits up.”
