Jill Scott’s ex sues for $500K, claims singer bullied him into signing prenup
Mike Dobson says singer emasculated him and used her money to control marriage
Jill Scott‘s estranged husband isn’t signing those divorce papers without a fight.
In court documents obtained by Bossip, Mike Dobson makes a barrage of accusations against the singer.
Dobson countersued Scott’s divorce filing, claiming that she and her lawyer coerced him into signing a prenup weeks before their wedding day in June 2016. Because he signed the prenuptial agreement under duress, he argued, it is not legal.
A list of demands
What’s more, Dobson says Scott violated the agreement’s confidentiality clause by speaking to the press about the divorce.
He is now demanding $500,000 for pain and suffering, and argues that he is entitled to half of their marital assets.
“To (Scott), marriage is a matter of trivial convenience at best and a dispensable annoyance at worst, evidenced by the lightness, dismissiveness, and dehumanization,” Dobson says in the countersuit. “(Scott) never attempted to salvage the marriage, which she strenuously endeavored to destroy.”
Dobson also accused Scott of emasculating him throughout their marriage; claiming that she used her money to control and silence him. What’s more, he goes as far as to accuse of her of going on dates with “intimate male friends.”
Scott, 45, filed for divorce on Sept. 5 after only 14 months of marriage.
The singer cited “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper.”
At the time of the divorce filing, Dobson called Scott an “evil woman.”
“I’m telling you. It’s like what Jill Scott wants, Jill Scott gets,” he said. “People are in her ear, and if someone comes in to challenge the dumb sh-t, they made me be the bad guy and that got me outta there.”
“She’s got issues,” Dobson added. “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.”
