Jill Scott’s Divorce from Mike Dobson
On September 15, 2017, after less than 18 months of marriage, Jill Scott filed for divorce from Mike Dobson citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper.”
Dobson responded to these allegations saying, “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 out of 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 going to control me. What’s right is right, and what’s wrong is wrong,” Dobson added.
In the divorce documents, Scott has listed herself as a writer and stated that Dobson is “unemployed.” However, Dobson claims that she’s done that only to smear him and that he has held a position with the city of Atlanta since 2011.
Dobson said, “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.”
Meanwhile, Jill Scott has revealed that they’d signed a prenup prior to their wedding, and she wants to get it enforced.
It looks like an ugly divorce is in the cards for Jill Scott and Mike Dobson.
