Jill Scott Will Not Be Forced to Pay Estranged Husband Spousal Support

Great news for Philadelphian songstress Jill Scott, as a judge recently ruled the “Golden” singer won’t be forced to pay estranged husband Mike Dobson’s divorce legal fees because it would be too similar to paying him spousal support, one thing her airtight prenuptial agreement will not allow, according to MadameNoire. Dobson previously tried to have the prenup thrown out.

Bossip reports the part-time actress didn’t leave Dobson destitute, giving him thousands of dollars before their 15-month marriage crumbled.

“She did not throw him out with nothing. She gave him $20,000 when he left. And during the course of the marriage, she deposited funds into an account for his benefit.”

Up listening to Phyllis Hyman. Such a mighty force. Such a powerful story.
