Yes, Jill Scott’s estranged husband gets the “Negro Please” award, asking for $500,000 for alleged “pain and suffering” as reported by Madamenoire. I recall reading some statements he made earlier in an exclusive interview with Bossip during the year in the early stages of the breakdown of the relationship. He stated, “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.”
Now, I don’t know if he’s relationship hustler or not. However, asking for $500,000 after barely being married is a bit suspect. Whose to say that wasn’t the plan all along? I’m sure this is not the first time he has ended a relationship. Did he ask his ex’s for compensation or relationship damages? What about the mothers of his five children? Did he ask them for compensation after parting with them? I’m just saying. Asking for half of what was accumulated during the marriage of 15 months, and according to him they were at odds and eventually separated during those 15 months seems shady AF.
As my mom says, something in milk ain’t clean. It’s looking increasingly like Jill Scott was supposed to be his come up! Which brings me to my next point. Ladies, it’s income tax time, and men are actively looking for the “come-up”. Here are five tips that my signal you are a “come-up target”
- He asks you for big ticket items early in the relationship
- There is no value for value. You give way more than you receive
- He gets jealous when you do monetary favors for others
- He gives you money, then asks for it right back
- He comes with fifty-eleven business ideas around tax time, but has not made any moves leading up to tax time.
Be wise. Trust your gut. Love yourself enough to believe the truth when it surfaces. By all means, protect your hard earned coin.
