Jill Scott’s Estranged Husband Countersues In Divorce; Demands $500K For Pain And Suffering & Wants Prenup Thrown Out
Divorce seems…expensive.

But Jill Scott’s situation sounds like it may be worth paying up to get out of.

Her estranged husband said the singer’s alleged bullying and humiliation of him began even before they became husband and wife.

Mike Dobson wrote in court papers, that three weeks before his wedding, Jill and her lawyer pressured him to sign a prenup they had drafted. He said he didn’t have a lawyer and felt coerced, but did so because he loved Jill.

He is firing back on her supposedly surprise 2017 divorce complaint, countersuing the singer and demanding their prenup declared invalid and their marital assets be split down the middle.


Mike claims that the prenup isn’t legal not only because he signed it under duress and without a lawyer AND because she violated the agreement’s confidentiality clause by speaking to the media about the divorce.

He thinks that he is entitled to half of their marital assets, plus $500,000 for the pain and suffering he allegedly endured during and after their year-long union.

“To (Scott), marriage is a matter of trivial convenience at best and a dispensable annoyance at worst, evidenced by the lightness, dismissiveness, and dehumanization,” his countersuit reads. “(Scott) never attempted to salvage the marriage, which she strenuously endeavored to destroy.”

"She’s an evil woman," her estranged beau once said. "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 [expletive], they made me be the bad guy and that got me outta there."
He continued, "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."
He added, "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."

He later changed his tune though.


"Please know that this very public approach to a sensitive matter like a divorce was never my intention, nor will it be my approach moving forward, despite the false statements published about me daily."

"Jill and I collectively have three children involved here and for the sake of their privacy and dignity, I would just ask all parties involved not to comment, say mean things and to please respect my individual privacy, her privacy and our children, who have to read all of these comments and statements."
Jill and Mike tied the knot in June 2016.
