Jill Scott’s struggles in love are well known, from her 2007 divorce from the man who inspired the track “He Loves Me (Lyzel in E Flat),” to the failed relationship with her drummer and the father of her son, to her current pending divorce after jumping the broom again just one year ago. For many of us, such heartbreak would be enough to throw in the towel and declare we’re done, but not Jilly from Philly. She says nothing will ever make her stop believing in love.
Today the singer made that declaration as she posted a beautiful selfie on Twitter. The 45-year-old wrote, “No matter how old I get, I’ll still make mistakes; some more apparent than others but NOTHING has or will stop me from believing in Love or the beauty that derives from it. NOTHING.”
You can tell by the likes and retweets that was a message many needed to hear.
This past November, Jill filed for divorce from Mike Dobson, citing “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper.” The two had been separated since September and since that time they’ve been engaged in a somewhat public divorce battle, with Jill being granted a restraining order against her soon-to-be ex-husband and him denying any mistreatment. With all that going on, it’s good to see the singer can still find a reason to smile and believe in love.
