Just call her Dr. Jilly from Philly! Jill Scott is returning to her alma mater to receive an honorary doctorate.
On Thursday May 15th, Scott will be honored as a Doctor of Humane Letters at Temple University in her hometown of Philadelphia.
The singer/slash actress, who was last seen in the Paula Patton lead RomCom Baggage Claim, will be on the big screen again in Get On Up, the James Brown biopic, later this year.
But just because she’s a big success as an actress doesn’t mean she leaving her singing roots. When we spoke to Jill during the Baggage Claim junket she told us that she taking her time with the music side of things, but she has been in the stuiod with some heavyweights!

Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.
Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.
Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.
Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.
Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.
So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.
Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
