Scott wowed photographers on the red carpet at the Mary J. Blige Honours Concert on 1st May 2011, debuting her new slimmer figure. Speaking to the June issue of Ebony Magazine, Scott said her personal trainer uses a specific technique in help her lose weight, saying, "Anything that makes me feel like I'm not working out. We go outside and throw footballs, go for walks". The singer gave birth to her son 'Jett Hamilton Roberts' in April 2009, but broke up with the baby's father Lil John Roberts just a month after the child's birth. The 39-year-old says she now devotes her time to bringing up Jett, saying, "I'm past caring about some things that never mattered in the first place and I'm in love with my baby boy". Scott was previously married to Lyzel Williams, a DJ and graphic artist from 2001 until 2007.
