Jill Scott’s estranged husband said the singer’s alleged bullying and humiliation of him began even before they got hitched.
Mike Dobson wrote in court papers that three weeks before his wedding, Scott and her lawyer pressured him to sign a prenup they drafted. He said he didn’t have a lawyer and felt coerced, but did so because he loved Scott.
Dobson is firing back on Scott’s surprise 2017 divorce complaint, countersuing the singer and demanding their prenup declared invalid and their marital assets split down the middle.
The estranged husband said the prenup isn’t legal not only because he signed it under duress and without a lawyer, but also because Scott violated the agreement’s confidentiality clause by speaking to the media about the divorce.
Dobson said he’s entitled to half of their marital assets, plus $500,000 for the pain and suffering he allegedly endured during and after their year-long union.
“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’s countersuit reads. “(Scott) never attempted to salvage the marriage, which she strenuously endeavored to destroy.”
