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.
