R&B star’s husband sparks drama at awards show.
The recent BET Honors tribute to Mary J. Blige had way to many divas to go off without at least a little drama. Producers reportedly wanted Keyshia Cole to do one of Mary’s songs, but apparently Blige’s husband and manager, Kendu Isaacs, was pissed and made the BET staff change the lineup.
Said one event organizer, “He thought there was already too much comparison between Keyshia and Mary and he wanted to make sure that everybody knows that Keyshia is not on Mary’s level”.
The dispute was said to last more than an entire week until the BET staff finally buckled under pressure after threats from Blige’s camp to withdraw completely from the event.
Said the event organizer, “The disagreement escalated all the way up the BET chain of command. It got ugly.” In the end, Keyshia Cole wound up paying tribute to legendary choreographer Judith Jamison while Anita Baker and Monica sang the salute to Mary J.
