NewlyWed Jill Scott Obtains Restraining Order Against Now Estranged Husband Mike Dobson
Jill Scott filed for divorce from Mike Dobson after just 15 months of marriage on Sept. 15, the same day she was granted a restraining order. 

The "Hate on Me" singer cited "inappropriate marital conduct" as the reason for the divorce filing. This suggests there was infidelity, cruel treatment, verbal or physical abuse or sexual indecency involved. 

Scott's filing stated that the couple living under the same roof would be "unsafe and improper." The separation date was listed as Sept. 5 and the court documents state they are living in separate households.

The singer obtained a restraining order the same day she filed for divorce. The legal document states that neither spouse can "threaten, harass or stalk the other." 

The couple are banned from destroying or hiding files on their hard drives or computers or hide assets from the marriage. They also are ordered not to spend money excessively without the court’s permission and must provide receipts for their purchases that the other party can view.

The request of a restraining order on the day of the divorce filing suggests that this split was anything but amicable. In fact, her estranged hubby stated Jill is an "evil woman" that loves to "control" men.

Dobson claims he was blindsided by Scott's decision to file for divorce, proceeding to bad mouth his estranged wife. "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."

Dobson 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 adds, "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."

Jill and Mike married just over a year ago in June 2016, tying the knot in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee. The former couple have no children together.

Uh oh! Looks like #JillScott has filed for divorce from her husband of 15 months citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper.” [📷: Jill Scott]

Scott was previously married to Lyzel Williams from 2001 to 2007. She was also previously engaged to musician Lil John Roberts, with whom she has a son, Jett.
