Jill Scott Files For Divorce
Unfortunately, another Hollywood couple is calling it quits. According to Bossip, 45-year-old Jill Scott has filed for divorce from her 49-year-old husband, Mike Dobson. The pair had been married for 15 months.
The soulful singer cites, “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper”.
Despite speculation, Scott’s estranged husband Dobson tells the outlet that he never laid a hand on his wife, cheated on her or made her engage in unwanted sexual contact. He says that he was “blindsided” by Scott’s divorce filing, although he admitted that they agreed to separate, work on their relationship and keep wearing their wedding rings. He says,
She’s an evil woman. I’m telling you. It’s like what Jill Scott wants, Jill Scott gets. People are in her ear, and if someone comes in to challenge the dumb s**t, they made me be the bad guy and that got me outta there. She’s got issues. There’s no men in that family, there’s only women. And when a man comes in, it’s like a challenge. She’s made other men look bad, but I’m not the one. I said (to her) ‘you’ve met your match’. She likes to have men that she can control. You’re not gonna control me. What’s right is right, and what’s wrong is wrong.
She likes to emasculate men – that’s her problem. I told her, she’s from Philly, but I’m from New York, and if you want to try to disgrace me, try to slander me, I can fight dirty.
They have no children. Scott was previously married to Lyzel Williams from 2001 to 2007 was also once engaged to musician Lil John Roberts, and the pair has a son, Jett. Click here for the full story.
