*A judge has signed off on the volatile divorce of Mary J. Blige and Kendu Isaacs, rendering both parties officially “single,” according to The Blast.

According to documents obtained by the site, their divorce judge signed off on the former couple’s settlement on June 20.

Isaacs had been seeking an increase in spousal support, claiming his estranged wife had substantial coin. Blige, however, argued that she wasn’t as rich as Isaacs thought, and did not earn a big check for her Oscar-nominated role in “Mudbound.”

Blige and Isaacs were finally able to reach an agreement regarding the divorce settlement two days before she attended the Academy Awards.

Meanwhile, Blige continues to pad her acting resume with a new leading role in “Body Cam,” a horror-thriller set up at Paramount.

Described as “Get Out” meets “End of Watch,” the story follows several LAPD officers who are haunted by a malevolent spirit that is tied to the murder of a black youth at the hands of two white cops — all of which was caught on a body cam video that was destroyed in a cover-up, according to Variety.

Blige will portray a police officer in “Body Cam” who begins seeing visions and starts to investigate the cover-up.

Nick McCarthy and John Ridley have performed rewrites of the spec script originally penned by Richmond Riedel.

Malik Vitthal will direct for Paramount Players.

Blige is also starring in the Netflix series “The Umbrella Academy.”
