Mary J. Blige: I Was Just Stopping Brawl Between My Husband and Brother

Mary J. Blige: I was just stopping brawl between my husband, Kendu Isaacs, and my brother

Mary J. Blige wants to damp down the drama over that fight at her record release party Tuesday night.

Contrary to claims that the hip-hop diva punched her husband, Kendu Isaacs, at a Chelsea club, Blige tells the Daily News she was simply trying to stop a brawl between Isaacs and her brother.

"Mary was not fighting with her husband," said Blige spokeswoman Karynne Tencer. "Her husband and her brother got into an altercation that turned into a fight. Mary went to break up the fight."

Tencer didn't immediately know the name of Blige's brother or the reason for the row.

Club security helped the Grammy Award winner pull the men apart, who also disputed reports that Isaacs' lip was bleeding.

"Nobody was bleeding," Tencer said.

Blige also denied she angrily compared Isaacs with notorious R&B star Chris Brown, who belted girlfriend Rihanna in February.

"She never mentioned Chris Brown," Tencer said. "Mary and Kendu went home together."

Blige had hoped the public wouldn't hear about the ugly scene at M2 Ultralounge, where she was celebrating her new album, "Stronger with Each Tear."

But after sources claimed she had smacked Isaacs because he was supposedly flirting with a waitress, Blige decided to set the record straight, Tencer said.

The publicist said the couple is celebrating Christmas with their three children on the East Coast.

"They're as happy as can be," Tencer said.

Mary J. Blige gave her husband a stern warning not to retaliate after striking him for checking out a waitress, witness say.

Hip-Hop diva Mary J. Blige smacked her husband for checking out a waitress at her CD release party this week and warned him, "You ain't going Chris Brown on me," witnesses said.

The "No More Drama" songstress lashed out at hubby Kendu Isaacs at the Tuesday night party at the M2 Ultralounge in Chelsea, witnesses said.

One partygoer told the Daily News that the 38-year-old Grammy winner flew into a jealous rage because Isaacs was paying too much attention to a waitress at the club.

"Mary hauled off and smacked him," the source said.

Blige then warned Isaacs not to even think about retaliating. "She said, 'You ain't going to go Chris Brown on me, are you?'" according to a source.

Brown beat up ex-girlfriend Rihanna in June after she caught him reading a text from an old flame. The now-infamous incident led to Brown pleading guilty to felony assault charges.

Blige, who is promoting her new album "Stronger With Each Tear," denied Wednesday night that the incident with her husband took place.

"They're as happy as can be," spokeswoman Karynne Tencer said. "They're spending the holidays together with their three children. Everything's great."

A friend of Blige suggested that some "haters" at the club may have "misunderstood a joke Mary and Kendu were sharing."
