Report: Newlywed R&B Singer Jill Scott Has Already Filed For Divorce

Well, that was fast.

Jill Scott has split from her husband, Mike Dobson, after a mere 15 months of marriage, BOSSIP has reported.

According to her divorce petition, she filed for divorce on September 15, citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper”.

Under Tennessee state law, “inappropriate marital conduct” encompasses cruel treatment, infidelity, verbal and physical abuse or sexual impropriety.


That said, her estranged husband told BOSSIP that he never laid a hand on his wife, cheated or made her engage in unwanted sexual contact.

Mike claims he was “blindsided” by Jill’s divorce filing; he admitted that they agreed to separate and work on their relationship, while continuing to wear their wedding rings.
Thank You Atlanta!! #onemusicfest was amazing!!! #OMF2017
“She’s an evil woman,” he 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.”

Yeah, this sounds like it’s going to get ugly UBER fast, right?

“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.”

The duo wed in an intimate ceremony in June 2016 and Big Daddy Kane apparently performed. There are no kids in the mix, thankfully.

Jill was married to Lyzel Williams between 2001 to 2007. She was also once engaged to musician Lil John Roberts, with whom she has a son, Jett.

“She’s made other men look bad, but I’m not the one. I said (to her) ‘you’ve met your match,'” Mike stated. “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.”

The songstress lists the date of separation as September 5th and noted in court papers that they are now living in separate homes. She also lists herself as earning a “PhD” and her occupation as a writer; she listed Mike as unemployed, (he told BOSSIP that he has held a position with the city of Atlanta since 2011 and thinks she may have done this in an attempt to “smear” him).

“She likes to emasculate men – that’s her problem,” Mike explained. “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”

Jill admits that she bought real estate and other assets throughout their marriage, but claims she has a pre-nup with Dobson. She has asked the court to enforce it.

Court documents show that Mike has not responded to Jill’s petition. 

An amazing night at the @whitehouse. Tune in to @BET on Nov 15th.
