Jill Scott, the Grammy Award winning R&B singer, says one of the reasons she split from her ex-husband was that he stopped eating her food. Scott, who releases her fourth studio album ‘The Light of the Sun’ today (21st June 2011) said her husband would leave specially prepared food uneaten for days, reports the UK’s Guardian newspaper.
Scott married DJ and graphic artist Lyzel Williams in 2001 during a private ceremony in Hawaii. However, after six years of marriage the couple divorced in 2007. During a candid interview, the singer revealed, “One of the reasons my ex-husband and I broke up is that he stopped eating my food. He was pissed (off) for other reasons, but the best way to show me was by leaving what I’d made for him uneaten for days on the kitchen counter. It was a smack in the face”. Shortly after the divorce, Scott shared a romantic on-stage kiss with her drummer Lil John Roberts during a concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The couple later announced their engagement and welcomed their first child ‘Jett Hamilton Roberts’ in April 2009. The singer announced the couple had split in June of that year.
Jill Scott, who is also the star of Hbo series ‘The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency’, performed ‘So In Love’ from her new album on the ‘Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ last week. The duet with Anthony Hamilton is the first official single to be taken from ‘The Light of the Sun’.
