Jill Scott’s estranged husband, Mike Dobson, refuses to take the couple’s divorce laying down. Dobson is doubling down that Scott was the aggressor in the marriage and is now suing her for $500k for pain and suffering, in addition to half of their marital assets according to The Grio.
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.
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.
If Dobson’s accusations are true, then Scott is a wild woman. Why get married to someone that you don’t consider your equal?
If Dobson is lying and this is another Mary J. Blige marriage situation, then it’s absolutely disgusting. Hopefully both parties can reach an agreement at least.
