Mary J. Blige hosted the Main Event of the 10th annual Tempted2Touch Black LGBT Pride Spring Break Getaway weekend on Saturday night. The party took place at the Rain Nightclub, which is situated in the four-star Palms Casino Resort off the Las Vegas Strip.

While at the event, she got in a bit of posing alongside the Ralph Lauren polo shirt-wearing businessman Mexico Joe, who’d founded Tempted2Touch. Mary married her manager Martin ‘Kendu’ Isaacs in 2003, but filed for divorce last January that’s become alarmingly rancorous as it’s proceeded. The reported this week that he’s demanding $110,000 a month in spousal support, having become used to a ‘lavish’ lifestyle during their marriage. Money for a housekeeper and meals out – as well as a $1,000 clothes shopping allowance – are reportedly on his wish list.

His paperwork has claimed he’s got ‘no source of income’ after Mary fired him as her manager. On top of the $110,000 a month, he allegedly wants $95,000 toward his attorney’s fees, $52,000 toward his forensic accounting fees, $5,000 a month to support his parents and $4,971 a month for his two children from a previous relationship.
