Jill Scott

Singer Jill Scott had an emotional breakdown online in front of all her fans over the weekend. The 45-year-old R&B Diva, who has a history of failed relationships with men, is going through a bitter divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson.

On Saturday, the mom of one posted a drunken video on social media. She slurred her words and explained that her night started out in a festive mood, but ended in a drunken stupor over a toilet bowl.

Dobson, 49, is asking a judge to force Scott to pay him a $500,000 settlement in their long, drawn out divorce battle.

Scott and Dobson secretly tied the knot in a hush-hush wedding at her home in Franklin, TN in June 2016.

In an interview with Rollingout.com, Scott discussed the pitfalls of rushing into a marriage based on infatuation and lust.

"We get caught up in someone's looks, or their money, but not the person. Or, we're into someone for a couple of months and then the novelty fades and we're on to the next," she said.

Scott told Essence.com that any man who wants her hand in marriage has to pass her 6 month test.

"If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you," she said.


#JillScott hops on social media completely wasted

    She’s human...but everything is not meant for social media.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I hope she has a good support system...it can't be easy

  • Kayke

    She sounds like the psycho he and so many others decribed.... "Make it over the 6 month hump" I'm so high on dopamine I'll marry you.....should've been the rest of that sentence. Jill needs to loveb
    herself and stop trying to fill voids with men and love .... chose next time....dont be chosen.

  • Evillene

    Why Lord? Please teach these troubled folks to stay the f-ck off social media. "Who Is Jill Scott, Words and Music Vol. 1" is one of the greatest albums of all time, so she gets a pass...but just one.

  • Gloria

    Praying for you Jill

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I read somewhere she and her son were acting. Is this a true account or fake news?

  • Lona nods

    i always find it strange how someone can be going through some of the worst or trying times in their life but still find time to post it on social media. surely there has to be a best friend, a close relative or someone other than the world she could have shared her thoughts and feelings with. at times it makes me think when people do this whether its celebrities or not, it's for attention and that it. just attention seeking.

  • SpillyNillie

    I thinks she's acting here...very well I must add...

  • Vonn

    Hope Jill gets herself together quickly. Prayers.

  • MsPam

    Please Jill, it looked like she was auditioning for a part in Oprah’s next movie!

  • MsPam

    Thank you! Nice lighting, good camera angle, pearls around the neck!!

  • Rayne

    Stop getting married to these fool that you hardly know. Ion like seeing her like this ?

  • BingBangBoom

    It seems like the same story with Jill. She will be remarried by 2019 in Wakanda.

  • NeverSurprised

    Social media = the devil's workshop.

  • Kanyade

    lol. in Wakanda? more like in Zamunda.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    She should listen to Mary's album "Strength of a Woman". It would be great if they paired up on a song!

  • Yoni7

    Acting or not, it wasn't pretty. She looked truly "lit".

  • Not a breakdown

    That was not a breakdown but it was not a good look. I don’t think she’s acting either. Jill should know better but most of us get drunk and in our feelings. We just have enough sense not to share it with the world.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    It was not a breakdown...but it was a poor choice.

  • Calikush

    Man, social media is not your diary!!!!! People be tellin all they business on social media! I don’t get it! ?????

  • Kemi

    Love you Jill !!! Stay strong and learn from your mistake(s). We all fall short.

  • Stationarity

    I have never thought about it like that. More of us NEED to keep diaries vs SM! Good point.

    I reflect all the time on people who were whining on SM about not being able to find a mate or how all the married females were the one that weren’t cute. (Ridiculous) and now they are the ones married. It was nothing wrong with their feelings, just the fact that it was as on SM instead of a private diary.



  • SumthinSweeter


  • https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/doc-joness-podcast/id1134986642 Doc J

    That’s not a breakdown, that’s just drunk posting. She gonna be aiight.

  • Calikush

    Yes! I have some friends that do this type of stuff on SM all the time! It’s ridiculous! That’s why I miss the 90’s sometimes! No online dating! U had to actually go out and meet people! And if u we’re going through something u had friends and family to talk to, now it’s spill all your feelings on Social media! It’s crazy!!!!

  • JRock

    Hopefully this was acting. I think Jill is smarter than this but since she is going through a divorce she should have thought this ALL the way through and she should have posted the video with the caveat "I was just acting in preparation for a movie role". Because seriously "deadhead dick I only married you for your money" otherwise known as Mike Dobson will come back and say see your honor I told you she was an evil alchoholic.

  • Bonita

    “If you make it over the six month hump, you have done something. I must really like you,” she said.

    And that's why marriage number two is a failure. People don't typically start to get comfortable and show their true colors until 6 - 8 months into a new relationship. Stop being so thirsty to be a wife that you throw patience out the window and ignore the red flags.

  • Mister Fantastic

    She is demonic physically now to match her attitude...

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I remember when I used to drink. When I was really drunk I wanted to talk to someone about, well... anything. And most times it was a pity party because that's what alcohol does to you. I remember looking through my phone to see which somebody was the best person to call. Alcohol is no joke and when you're really drunk you're either going to talk or drive. I thank God that I had people to talk to. Jill is showing that she has no real friends if she has to resort to SM to vent. I still think it was a stunt but if it wasn't... Find a support group Jill.

  • We Can Do This

    ?baby baby don't cry, it's better to dry your eyes?

    She will bounce back.

  • Dahl

    This was not a good look for her...

  • Bonsai

    She held the phone real straight while drunk.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I support women. PERIOD. But not on the NONSENSE tip. Jill does not want to deal with her attitude problem. The husband is asking for the money NOW because she would NOT keep his name out of her mouth. I have been following this case since it first started. Yes, he is being PETTY. Because he is Pissed & hurt.
    I do not know why people think that men can not hurt.

  • PinkGoon

    Lol!!!! Well folks stop forgetting these celebrities are just everyday human beings and go through it just like us....folks be so worshipping these celebs like their gods or statues they tend to dehumanize them by doing so...sad. I pray for you Jill???

  • Branch Davidian

    She seems like a dream! She and Halle Berry should start the Pain in the Ass club. Yikes...

  • Scromes1212

    I don't know if I would call that a break down. She just look like she had to many and she just got finished throwing up.

  • Scromes1212


  • Boonella

    alcohol and social media never mix.....

  • starbright9449

    She's too old to be rushing into marriages. How long did she even know that man? You were suppose to start hiding your money when things were falling apart. Tsk tsk. Look at Ludacris with his silly azz. He hid his money. Blame it on splurging and giving it away.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    anyone ... From observance showing their azz on social media ... Are the cause to their own destruction... Get on there and show exactly who they are soulless and becoming unhinged .... Pay attention ... More fawk shyt to come... Sick of the key board thugs And facebook instagram flexing. . You want the floor ? Make a fool of yourself by yourself blewp ... Don't feed them either by acknowledgeing this fake call for help... These folks have tried to ruin lives behind the scenes ... And social media is the only place where anyone will acknowledge them.. . Jill I see ya

  • KcoolMuziq

    Jill(Whom I met at an award show) is a VERY good actress. I can honestly see her winning an Oscar one day.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ever celebrity ain't human. . Hate to break that to you

  • You already know ?

    Damn why you’re Azz sounds just like me I been preaching this for years!..?????????

  • You already know ?

    Sometimes ?....Shiiiid all the time compared to nowadays!... IJS ?????????

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    come on T's this is what demons do... When they exhaust their personal relationships they look for outside sources to feed their sick demented ways... Playing victim eventually that doesn't work.... You never seek out others to heal you... Healing starts within... That is impossible for a demon .... The soul already knows how to heal.. .. Hell we may even get drunk but we keep it to ourselves simply because of compassion ... Enough compassion not to spread the same sickness to anyone else so we retreat ... This is a person that has a soul.. The ones that don't will seek validation preferably on social media because well... It is the devils playground ... You lie all you want on there and play victim easily ... Even catfishing folks

  • datjerk


  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Shyt, 10 year later, hubby and I still learning about each other’s ways and how to best work with our flaws/ complications. Getting married in fresh off the dopamine is stupid. Love is a finicky emotion, or takes more than love to have a successful marriage.

  • mark1984

    She always represents us well. I give her a pass on this.

  • Renee26

    Men can absolutely hurt...going after a woman's coins that you didn't help her make is wrong and looks more like greed than hurt to me

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I've been saying this to my friend's for the longest!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Oh s**t, I damn near fell out my chair on that one!

  • Desiree Edwards

    I love Jill Scott...don't knock this queen down! She's just going through a bitter divorce. Praying for her!

  • AG

    We watching different videos.

  • Renee26

    After I cancelled my SM I went back to the old way of doing things...I feel better too

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    You know, black people need to see therapists. Many folks don't believe in counseling or support groups, and maybe they should seek help. I hate seeing Jill Scott like this, but don't make it public. Take it to a therapist.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol although I've never drank I too have had to set my phone down after a puff too many ???. I'm sure lots of folks have these moments but just are smart not to post them.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Not in this case. Jill has been dragging him for filth, instead of being an adult. And because of her other past behavior, she is the weak link.

  • bashi

    Feel sorry for these women but isn’t she and actress

  • datjerk

    The video seems contrived and it's giving me Tyreese vibes. I like Jill, but this is some real life foolishness.

  • datjerk

    Very true

  • Missy

    Long gone are the days when private chit remained private.

  • Blak

    Jill will never get sympathy from me. If she wants a simple man to control she needs to get one of those non aggressive dogs.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Oh geez. How embarrassing

  • Toni ToniToni

    THAT PAWT! I immediately thought she had to be acting..
    And yessss, She is a helluva an actress! Was pleasantly surprised with the HBO special she did a while back! Plus she was dope in Tyler Perrys movies

  • more

    3 months you get an idea of what he wants.....

  • Fire & Ice

    YES!!! A lot of black people need professional counseling, but refuse to deal with their issues. I heard an interview, Mary J Blige did on the breakfast cub last year, and she doesn't think she needs professional counseling.....Really!?!?. Bozo the clown has taken you for a ride. plus you have a history of failed, abusive relationships. Yet, you don't think you need professional counseling ?

  • Renee26

    Is he asking for spousal support or suing for defamation of character?

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    She should be careful what she shares, people be all up in her business. Or maybe she likes the attention?

  • tia

    Hmm... happens to the best of us. This too, shall pass. She'll be okay. Praying for you Jill.


    I was trying to figure out what was going on?

  • SweetTEE

    Aint no way. I was only tipsy last night and dropped my phone on my nose trying to facetime. She damn near had a meltdown.

  • AveIvy

    Looks like she had lots of fun Saturday night. Do you Jill!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond
  • Dollface

    I never understood how people can claim to be so wasted, but managed to turn on their device, find the camera button, hit record, hold the camera to their face, act or talk stupid, then post to social media. Seems like a lot of steps for someone supposedly so drunk.

  • Wyteprivilege

    I miss them so much!!!

  • James Hudson

    She got her drink on SO WHAT! Who cares?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    The only people who are judging her are the ones who need to feel better about their lives.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Awww. Poor Jill my heart goes out to her. But she needs to be at a relationship therapist airing her issues not on social media. I'm quite sure she is hurt and needs emotional healing but social media is not the spot for this. I wish her well in all her future endeavors.

  • Patricia

    next her husband will be claiming shes an unfit mother and substance abuser

  • Kendra Foster

    People just don't understand anymore and brainwashed that the real artist are sensitive. It just works out that way in talent. Your imperfection become your perfection.

  • bhavana

    I thought Jill had herself together. Getting drunk then going on social media crying is not cool. Her child will one day see this. This is not how a mature, responsible parent acts.


    I wonder if that kid of her is going thru hell with her mood swings and drunken stuphor, she is an ARIES so on to the next man.

  • Elevated Soul

    I absolutely love Jill Scott's music....

    The problem with Jill is that she's not living what she sings about.She's not living her "worth".Jill seems not to know what a real man is because she keep picking dudes that dog her out.

    The first dude (Lyzel) dogged her so bad until she hasn't recovered according to what my Philly people, has told me.He divorced her with the quickness.Then she had a baby with her drummer (not married). She then married this dude with multiple kids that she may have to give her hard earn money to.

    Jill need to know her worth....Girl go back and listen to "Rolling Hills"...."I want to see you glow Jill,You are a prize possession,not everyone's worthy"!

  • Elevated Soul

    LOL.....Don't judge us Aries based on what Jill does,because most of us deal with our shyt with a sober mind.Most Aries including myself keep our shyt to ourselves. We would never be caught on social media acting like Jill.

    Jill just seems lost and just real desperate.....I wish Jill well. She has got to live her "self worth"....

  • James Hudson

    They need to get a life then bro, go on the Tom Joyner Cruise or take a trip to Vegas, visit the King Monument on the mall in DC do SOMETHING instead of judging othrr people and sticking they big nose in somebody else's business...ya dig?

  • dontgetblocked

    She preaches it but she doesn't live it.

  • Elevated Soul

    Exactly she does not live it....She puts too much faith in men especially Black men.It's as if every Black man she get with is a "project" for her,which also speaks to her insecurities as a woman....

    There are worthy Black men out here but she's not looking for that it seems....She is also limiting herself.

  • Kendra Foster

    I don't get into people's business. I don't strive on their indiscretions. I didn't know she had a child. I just listen to a song and keep it moving. Therefore, we should lift her up to continue her art, that you may have listened to at least one time.

  • dontgetblocked

    After a certain age, you should never be seen this on social media. No matter what's going on in your personal remain dignified. We've seen her big boobs and now this. There's just no excuse.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    That I do not recall but from what I had read, he was just going to BOUNCE. But, Jill would not SHUT UP.

  • Kendra Foster

    Thank you. They' re like she should do this, she should've done that. If "if"was a fifth, we all be drunk.

  • Noirluv45

    They can't stick their noses into business that's not put out there. When one goes on social media with their business and there are millions of people at hand to read it, there are going to be millions of opinions, so the moral of the story is if you don't want people in your business or what to hear people's opinion, stay off social media!

  • Marquita


  • James Hudson

    That's true but not everyone is on social media for all the drama, I don't post things for likes or tell my business on social media. But just because I post something then that opens the door for folks to mind my business and not their own?

  • Sojourner’s Truth

    Jill stop choosing Bums. Stay off that shit.

  • Kendra Foster

    Good job whyte conservative/supremacists. Pat yourself on the back.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This is why boys, and girls need positive parents in their lives, or you will have to learn a lot of painful lessons, until you get it right. Also private moments, need to stay private. SMH!

  • Kimberly King

    Wished she would have married a man who either: A) made the same amount of money she made or B) made MORE than her. She should have known this sanitation workin ass ninja was gon try to clean her out. He's pathetic. Anyway, hope Jill gets it together. Stay off social media! Especially when you're going through sh*t.

    The order was granted apparently.

    Jill also has a restraining order in place barring Mike from speaking publicly about their divorce.

    6 kids from a previous relationship. Jill I could have told you that would NOT work and that he would try to spend up Jetts college fund if he could.

    Jill honey you should have never settled for some broke ninja with 50-11 children.

  • Noirluv45

    Right. I don't think everyone's on social media for the drama either that's why I think when celebs are on social media, their posts should pertain to their profession and not their personal business. I understand many of them share stories to encourage their readers/fans, but they always risk being ridiculed. That's the way the ball bounces sometimes. If you have no business out there, there's nothing for them to mind, right?

  • BlahBlahBlah

    she deleted the post, i saw it, sad....but she was on one on a drunk one or something, and her post all day were kind of disturbing, if you know her call out the shrink.

    lmao...okay then!

  • don juan

    Jill Scott is a typical female Aries. She can't control the situation and she broke down. She's mad bc she is not in control #thatsall

  • Bonita

    Not necessarily. You see, women talk too much. And because we talk too much, in the beginning stages of getting to know a man through conversation, we often create the character that we want a man to play without even realizing it. We give him all the detailed history of the no good men who have hurt us in the past, what they did and didn't do, and what type of man we're now looking for. So now we've set that man up to run game on us. This is where the true test of the man's character you're trying to get to know comes into play. Because he's either in it to manipulate you and take on this role that you've created for him, or he's genuinely in it to be his authentic self. A man who is simply playing the role to get hired for the part always gives off red flags, because he knows he's playing a temporary role to begin with. The only person not in the know is the woman that gave him all the details he needed, in order to play the character of the man she created for him during those conversations in the beginning stage. Then once he knows that you're emotionally invested, he feels comfortable enough to shed the role and his true character begins to rear it's ugly head. That's why patience is critical. It's so important to allow one another to reach their comfort level before jumping into something as serious as marriage. If not, you'll just keep repeating the same mistake, and before you know it, you're on marriage numbers three and four.

    Damn everything you said was deep. Let me give you insight into why i said 3 months. In my experience the men i have dated it only took them 3 months to start showing their true selves. I never needed 6 months or more but your right i do talk a lot. I think it's as a way of not coming off as boring or unable to hold conversations. IDK what other woman's reason behind revealing so much about themselves but this is mine. I also do believe that most men know that woman love relationships so they already know what to say to give that off
