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.

Latifah graces the cover of July 2009's issue of Essence Magazine.  She talks about marriage, commitment, and sadly, being abused as a child.

Of the traumatic experience, Latifah tells that she was violated by a teenage babysitter, saying:

“He violated me. I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arms length. I never really let a person get too close to me.”

She also admits that, because of the abuse, she’s since struggled with commitment. “I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue.”
