Jill told Essence Magazine, fiancee Lil John, was there for only a few days after the baby was born.  She doesn't seem to sad about it.  Co-parenting works best if you can't make the relationship work. Best of luck to ya Jill :)

ESSENCE.COM: Well, at least your hubby-to-be was there to support. How has he been adjusting to Jett?

SCOTT: Yes, he was there and for a couple of days afterwards while I stayed in hospital, but John and I are no longer together. When you have a baby you’re dealing with a lot of emotions and I don’t know how much of it had to do with us breaking up, but it happens. We definitely love our son and we are co-parenting and working on being friends. It is what it is. I have a lot of support, so I want for nothing as far as that’s concerned. I know some might criticize me or the fact that my son is being raised in a single-parent home,  but I wasn’t raised in a two-parent home and I had a good relationship with my dad. I have hopes for him and I’m sure his father will do his part as well.

  1. It is hard enough as it is raising kids. It takes a strong women to keep on going when the plan has already been made for you. Crying over spill milk is not going to keep you focused. Remembering what granny told you, and putting GOD first, will always make life living like its golden. lol! I am one of your biggest fans! Your music is off the chain! Your concerts are explosive! Keep doing what you do best….sing and be the best mother you can be!
