…not a damn thing!

Earlier this year Mike Dobson demanded $500,000 in spousal support from soon-to-be ex-wife Jill Scott. His absurd reasoning, “he 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.”

According to Bossip, under their prenup, “both sides agreed not to seek alimony, maintenance or spousal support”. Additionally there was a “special provision that there would be no “marital property” generated from the union. The judge said that means as of now, Dobson can’t claim any stake in any income or assets outside of his own that were generated during the marriage.”

The 45-year-old three-time, Grammy winner filed for divorce in November 2017 after one year of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

And while this may be a win for Scott, others like Mary J. Blige (whose divorce proceedings ended earlier this month) and Melanie Brown haven’t been so lucky.
