Jill Scott is walking away from her marriage of only 14 months and it is already getting messy. The same day that the singer filed for separation against her soon-to-be ex husband Mike Dobson, she also filed for a restraining order against him.

Under the restrictions of the order, Scott nor Dobson can threaten, stalk nor harass one another or say anything that can be deemed as disrespectful of one another in front of their children. The couple also can not destroy or hide any hard drives, computers or hide any assets that was accumulated during their union.

Scott filed for a divorce from Dobson back in September after only being married for a little over a year. She cites “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper.” Which could imply that there could have been infidelity, verbal or physical abuse to cruel treatment and sexual impropriety. Scott says she has a prenup with Dobson and wants the Judge to enforce it. Dobson claims that he was blindsided by the divorce filing, yet he agrees that the couple had hit a rough spot and separating was the best choice. Although he had the understanding that the couple would work on their marriage.

Dobson spoke exclusively to Bossip, stating:

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 sh*t, they made me be the bad guy and that got me outta there. 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. She’s made other men look bad, but I’m not the one. She likes to have men that she can control. You’re not gonna control me. What’s right is right, and what’s wrong is wrong.

Jill Scott has not spoken publicly of her divorce.
