The No More Drama hitmaker filed legal papers to end her 12-year marriage from Martin "Kendu" Isaacs in July (16), and the former couple has been fighting over his request for almost $130,000-a-month (£102,000) in spousal support ever since.

In December (16), Mary claimed Isaacs, who worked as her manager, had cheated her out of more than $420,000 (£328,000) during their marriage by falsely claiming business expenses that allegedly had nothing to do with her career.

In the new documents, she claims he spent that money, which he chalked up to "travel charges", on a new girlfriend, according to TMZ.com.

Mary has also responded to his spousal support request, calling his demands outrageous and insisting he is trying to claim more money than he needs, in order to cover his parents and his three children from previous relationships.

"I am not responsible for supporting (Martin's) parents and his children from another relationship which he lists as ongoing monthly expenses," she reportedly says in the documents.

When he filed for spousal support, Isaacs claimed the singer earned between $1.5 million (£1.2 million) to $5.1 million (£4 million) over the last two years while he had no income as he was fired as her manager shortly after she filed for divorce. But the 46-year-old has denied his estimates, insisting their estate is "underwater" and there is no money left for handouts as she is covering all the expenses while he "contributes absolutely nothing".

Isaacs is father to sons Jordan and Nas from his first marriage and daughter Brianna from a previous relationship. He had no children with Mary.
