Jill Scott is ending hr marriage to Mike Dobson after less than 18 months.
The Grammy-winning songstress separated from Dobson, 49, in September and she is claiming it would be ‘unsafe’ to continue living with him.
In documents obtained by TMZ Scott, 45, cites ‘inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper’.
She also cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce.
As to what Scott means by ‘inappropriate marital conduct’, under Tennessee law it can range from cruel treatment, infidelity, verbal or physical abuse or sexual impropriety.
Scott lists the date as separation as September 5 and says they are living in separate home.
Dobson told Bossip.com, who first reported the split, that he ‘never laid a hand on her or cheated on her.’
He hit back at his estranged wife, welling the website: ‘She’s an evil woman, I’m telling you. It’s like what Jill Scott wants, Jill Scott gets.
‘People are in her ear, and if someone comes in to challenge the dumb s**t, they made me be the bad guy and that got me outta there.
He added: ‘She’s got issues. There’s no men in that family, there’s only women. And when a man comes in, it’s like a challenge.’
The couple married in June 2016 in Tennessee and have a prenuptial agreement which the Golden singer wants to enforce.
In the court documents Scott lists Dobson’s occupation as ‘unemployed’ which he denies, telling Bossip that he’s held a position with the city of Atlanta since 2011.
