According to the rumor mill in Hollywood’s dark alley, the well-publicized split between Mary J. Blige and her former husband and manager is due to an infamous starlet turned author who was known for sleeping her way to the top.
BET News reported recently that Blige’s divorce from Kendu Issacs may have been caused by Karrine Steffans, the notorious former video vixen who became an A-class author on the New York Times Best Seller’s list for her book Confessions of a Video Vixen.
Steffans (also known as Superhead) has a recent splitsville trip on her resume too. The 38-year-old broke up with actor/choreographer Columbus Short not too long ago. BET reported that an unnamed source at Fameoulous.com claimed that Steffans found time between her aimless relationship with Short to allegedly be a homewrecker.
“I have known Kendu for 10 years, through mutual business associates and friends. I consider him a friend, yes. Not a close friend, but a friend nonetheless,” Steffans told Bossip.
However, when Steffans was asked whether or not she had an adulterous affair with Issacs, she did not give a definitive “no.”
There were also rumors about Issacs financially supporting Steffans, even though his own adult daughter contends that she struggled financially and did not receive any help from her father. But Steffans vehemently denied receiving any money from Issacs during the course of their “friendship.”
“Why would I need anyone to do that? That doesn’t make any sense,” she told Bossip.
“Leaked is not the right term; the right term is ‘made up,’ and I don’t know who did this but it had to be someone who has something to gain by it,” Steffans added.
This latest confirmation by Steffans doesn’t make her look any better in the divorce story unfolding between Issacs and Blige. In any case, this will probably be messy as millions of dollars are reportedly at stake.
