: There's a new celebrity couple. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com's faithful Jill Scott and actor Lamman Rucker were coupled up at BET's Honor Awards.
Here's what our reader had to say:
I just attended the 2008 Bet Honors in Washington, DC and the event was great! I have many stories to tell but I ran in immediately after the after party and had to let Mediatakeout know that Jill Scott was very cozy with her Why Did I Get Married costar Lamman Rucker.
Also, I just saw Jill listed as #1 on his MySpace page. The two were seated together and Mr. Rucker put his hand around Jill's slimming waist prior to them walking in after Jill's performance.
Lastly, can someone ask Jill what in the hell was son important that she had to walk to her seat on her cellphone! She truly represented South Philly with that one!
We liked them together in the movie, and we like them even better in real life....
Hmmm, she needs to do something about the hair? Just the hair, y'all? She may have a cute face, but she can surely stop eating some burgers too! Trust, he will be looking elsewhere soon enough! Yes, she's talented.....but give credit ONLY when it's due!
Awww...cute couple!! I saw the movie special on BET with the whole cast of "WHY DID I GET MARRIED" and he sho' was doing some heavy flirtin with her on air. I can only imagine what he was saying to her behind cameras...LOL But that's what up...he knows a beautiful, intelligent, classy lady when he sees one!
I hope they make it. She a GREAT singer, and he's just FIONE...Wondering did they start this before during or AFTER...Why DID I GET MARRIED. In the voice of Mama Pearl (Ced's Grandma) "White girls seduce...I'm tryin to put it on ya!" Go JILL!!!!!
Candied you took the words out of my mouth! how are you going to loose weight then gain the shiit right back! what kind of diet is that? lmao, and dude is fine, and I love me some Jill but you need to be saying your vows to a gym boo!
Ya so sexy still! But I remembered you are still on the millionaire club millionairecupid.com. You should remove it since you've got your love. And you should also share your happiness and success stories with us!
He got a look at those yams.. and that sweet smile.. Can you blame him?? She straight and can sang.. ump!
Seems like the white guys and the wanna be white black girls got a problem with thickness on here.. Real black men with size need thickness. HOLLA!
Ya'll act like she's 300 pounds!! She looks just fine to me. Some of the same people pointing out her size are some of the same ones who will complain about women in Hollywood being too skinny now days. When there is a "healthy" woman being portrayed...ya'll wanna act like she's morbidly obese. Stop fence hopping. Obviously he has no prob with her size...
Big flagpost to luscious _vanilla!!! ... You said it all girl in your posts!
I am a true Jill Scott fan! ... Love her from the first cd to the last and in all her transitions as an artist. As her popular record states "HATE ON ME" hater! she says it all to you guys who feel otherwise about her other than her happiness and her blessings. Jill is one of those artist and women that capsizes the truth about herself and her experiences, which is also how and where her beautiful music is created and based on. I respect her, feel her and love her truth, realness, and creativity unlimited!!! ... Go Jill and As I've seen the flirtation on the Tyler Perry's talk show on tv one. I knew it was only a matter of time. That man is diggin WHO YOU ARE! and right WHERE YOU ARE! ... You go girl! and you go Lamman wit you fine self! Hey it's 08"! ... When u love who you are fully! ... You will attract that very same element to yourself. Size, Color, Age ... or any other factor is of issue. - - - It's all a spirituality thang!
All of you who are hating on her size and saying that he downgraded- whatever. She is a big girl, but whats wrong with that. She might be healthy. Yea, yea- it could cause a health problem, but apparently it hasn't. She looks good and she loves herself-so leave it alone.
And Mr.Rucker has stated OPENLY that he is feeling her and wants to date her and get to know her a lot better. I believe that they probably are dating. I am not mad either because that brother is the business!!!!!
Tyler Perry broke this news back when he had a special on TV one for the release of the movie Why Did I get Married. All the cast was on the show and he said that Lemmon and Jill had been inseperable since the filming of the movie. and Malik Yoba had to except that Janet Jackson was not his wife in real life
This is more about his career thatn about him being interested in Jill Scott. Men always know how to get where they want to go--who the hell is this guy? I saw him once or twice before that movie came out, and he's okay, but he's looking ot for himself if he's with her--TRUST ME---------
TRUST YOU??? I guess he told you that, huh? You people are hella funny!!!!
Seriously- someone explain it to me. Is it really that hard to believe that a beautiful plus size woman could get a man? Does her being plus size mean that a sexy black man could only be interested in her to advance his career? I guess when a bbw has a fine man- he has to be using her because there is no way that he could possibly be in love with her- right???? Someone please help me understand!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you guys are comdians...
Jill is a dyck chaser she just goes from man to man... Sucks the food right out his mouth and then dumps him for another brother with more food in his refridgerator.... Just kidding...
but i do think she needs some stablity in her life...
Y is Jill the poster child for natural beauty because she is overweight and has an afro puff come on now i love and respect her music but natural beauty she is not.(I'm not saying she's unnattractive either but a natural beauty HELL 2 THA N-O) YALL MITE AS WELL SAY FLAVA FLAV IS A NATURAL BEAUTY EXCEPT HE'S SKINNY
He is cute as hell. That is not the cutest that I've seen her look but G'on sista...find inspiration wherever you need cuz your music is banging!
And what the phuck is a third cuzin removed??? hehe! That always threw me the hell off!
lucious how the hell do you know she is healthy? see that is what trips me out with yal dumb ass posters, yal don't know a damn thing about thse celebs! we are commenting on the pic alone because guess what, that is all we know! get the fuuck out of here talking about she this and that!
Damn what are yal, her third cousin removed? lmao
I fuucks with Jill though very talented, but she was doing good when she was loosing weight for HER HEALTH! now she has gotten bigger so she needs to go back to doing what she was doing from the get go! if you want to show some damn support, chip in for her gym membership!
ok..some of you people be on here talking about how these celebs look ...meanwhile YOUR picture looks like shyt. Please please do us all a favor and look in the mirror. Your 'problem' may not be weight...maybe it's a lack of weight..a bad weave..shape like a 12 year old little boy, a cheap outfit etc. You catch my drift..lmao.
It's all the pot calling the kettle black in my book.
@ I_got_this: YOU ARE AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL SO I WON"t get on YOUR A$$!
BUT IF A PERSON CHOOSES TO PUT Their PICTURE ON this SITE...THEY WILL be commented ON!, like you for instance YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ONLY HAVE ONE(1)TITT!E.
DubR, come on now, give credit where credit is do. You can't deny that she is a pretty lady...then again, its a matter of opinion. But I've never come across someone who would have put her in the same category as Flav.
Realwoman, Chuuuuuch! You are telling it like it is.
lmao at kenyatta! damn leave my little bites alone! :( damn I can't help it I lack in that area, hopefully when I pop some babies out I can get some boobies lmao but damn yal act like cuz a biitch said she need to loose weight I'm Satan! she does! end of discussion! and this is all my damn hair! and how the hell do a white tee shirt and some jeans look cheap? lmao! damn do I need to have on some high fashion merchandise when I'm out chilling? lmao some people in their feelings, gotta hate on the little ones lol and I got some time to grow in my breastesses lol
You better be glad she didn't curse your azz out!! She is feisty as shiit!
@I_got_this........ Your right! They act like you just lied on Jill she's fat as shiit! She was on TV One doing the interview for the Tyler Perry movie along with the rest of the cast. She was the fattest one on stage, I was embarrassed for her. She's a mess. She looked very uncomfortable. In addition to that her attitude sucks!!!!!
And by the way MTO Jill is not from South Philly, she's from North Philly. So she wasn't representing South Philly. Do your research.
LMAO @ kenyatta & pac4lyfe!
For real..how is Jill and Flav even in the same category. This has nothing to do with complexion either. Flav needs to put the pipe, clock, and crown down!!!
Jill Scott is not grotesquely fat, has a beautiful face, and ALWAYS rocks the natural do's. No wonder she always has a man...
I_got_this...of all the people on here that we could have been talking about you are the only one taking offense?? Also, for the record...ANYTHING from jeans to a formal gown can look cheap babes! It depends on who designed it and who rocked it...
Not my cup of tea but to each his own. What in the hell does this statement by the"faithful reader" mean?
"was son important that she had to walk to her seat on her cellphone!" Is that ebonics or some other language because it's NOT english. Walk ON her cell phone. What the hell?
Damn some of you bastards on here are haters for real. I thought the topic was about her and Lamman as a couple...NOT HER DAMN WEIGHT!! Ya'll act like telling her she needs to lose weight is something she don't know already. If her ex husband and now her new man not complaining, then you all need to STFU!!! Since when is it a crime to be big with a boyfriend or husband? I can tell the age of some of you on here, you really need to grow up
My opinion... She may be a big woman, but she wears it well. Not everyone is supposed to wear a size 4 on down. America has programmed everyone to think that fat= unhealthy and nasty, and it's just NOT TRUE. We humans come in different shapes and sizes. Just because you're carrying weight on you doesn't mean you're supposed to get on the phone immediately and call Jenny.
I find Jill to be extremely beautiful. I love her. I've been a fan of hers for years, but after seeing her on Dave Chappelle's Block Party, I would kill for the chance to see her perform live. Her performance with Erykah Badu brought tears to my eyes, and I still can't explain why. Beautiful performance.
In short, all I'm saying is fat or skinny, man or no man, Jill Scott is a bad b*tch, no if's, and's or maybe's. If nothing else, just listen to her music. Her music is art in rare form. She's definitely the business.
I love Jill and I am very happy for her. How the discussion went from her love life to her weight I'll never know. She's beautiful no matter what size package she comes in. To all of the emaciated haters on here, Eat a 2 piece maybe you'll snag a man as fine as Jill's.
MTO GET IT RIGHT SHE IS FROM "NORTH PHILLY" AND HERE I THOUGHT YOUR SOURCES WERE CHECKED SHE IN NOT THE FIRST CELB TO BE CAUGHT ON HER PHONE ...............BUT GET IT RIGHT NEXT JILL IS A BEAYTIFUL SISTER AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IS JUST HOW PHILLY I AM WHO I AM AND I DON'T HAVE TO BE A SIZE ZERO. JILL WE LOVE YOU IN THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE AND SISTERLY AFFECTION YOU MAKE US PROUD...........ALL HATERS GET A MORROR AND REFLECT ON YOURSELF
Ladytee35, where did you get that pic of Jon b? I'mo hafta steal that from ya. Yea they do make a cute couple. I hope he is good to her(if they really are in a relationship)they look like a sweet couple!
Well I think they look cute and yes I heard there was a real life romance between them..it was unplanned but I'm glad they're together.
And ain't a damn thang wrong with that man. He's handsome. For those who are hatin' post a pic of your sasquatch. Phuck!
HE LOOK GOOD. IDK ABOUT JILL SCOTT. SHE LOOK A HOT AS MESS WITH THAT HAIR. I KNOW SHE IS GOING FOR THE NATURAL LOOK, BUT THAT ISN'T WORKING FOR HER. WELL THAT STYLE ISN'T WORKING VERY WELL.
I just had to log in to post my reply yo some of your comments because they are ridiculous! First off just because she is overweight doesnt meant that she is on the verge of death! People kill me talking about a person isnt healthy beacause of their extra weight when the very people talking probally eat unhealthy and drink like guppies but arent fat. STOP! (and Im a slim person by the way) And for those who says that Jill hasnt lost any weight are wrong! She is alot smaller than what she was. And to the person who said she needs more stability in her life...WHO ARE YOU?? Just because she got divorced and is dating doesnt hardly make her unstable. I commend her for doing that and not being depressed over her divorce. And last but not least, just because the brother is SUPER FINE and she is a big girl doesnt mean that it is true love. GET IT STR8 FOR '08!!
I THINK JILL AND LAMMAN AMKE A REALLY CUTE COUPLE ON AND OFF SCREEN. SHE IS ADORABLE AND HE IS FINE AS HELL!!! IF THIS IS TRUE (WHICH I REALLY HOPE IT IS) I SAY GO ON JILL. DO YO THANG MA MA!!!
Add my music page and show ya girl some love ;)
Lamman has a longtime girlfriend and she is absolutely georgeous. I know them personally, and they have been seen in NYC together on more than a few occassions. Jill is cool and all, but she can't hold a candle to his girl. As a matter of fact I believe that Jill should seek her services, due to the fact that she is a personal trainer to the stars in NYC. He may go to events with people like her, Toccarra, etc. for PR, but they are not in a relationships. Lamman is a very good friend to many woman, and it's genuine. His girlfriend has always understood this about him.
Maybe him and his long time girlfriend broke up then cause I don't know if you seen the Tyler Perry movie special on BET and TVONE, but Lamman let it be known that he wanted something more with Jill...OFF SCREEN!
Oh my goodness he is fine! GO JILL SCOTT!!! Well on her album and during some of the interviews she said having no sex was a bitch. I knew Jill wouldn't stay single for long anyways...
So her ex can go KICK ROCKS, NIGGA....
SO SILLY OF U GUYS TO EVEN THINK THAT JILL IS FROM SOUTH PHILLY...NORTH PHILLY STAND UP!! LOL.. BUT ANYWAYS IM HAPPY FOR HER.. AND I'VE LOVED HIM EVERY SINCE HE PLAYED DAVID RUFFIN'S BROTHER ON THE TEMPTATIONS...LMAO
