“Jill Scott gotta sex tape?????” one Twitter user wrote.
“N****s out here down bad tryna find this Jill Scott tape…” another wrote.
Scott herself finally got word of the commotion and responded to the viral Twitter storm on Wednesday.
“Say word!?!” the songstress joked, sharing a GIF of herself.
Scott emerged as a Verzuz phenomenon in 2020 after going head-to-head on the virtual battle series against neo soul queen Erykah Badu. However, Scott explained before and after the event, her and Badu’s Verzuz showdown was more of a “celebration” of each other’s discographies than a traditional “battle.”
“I didn’t like the ‘battle’ energy of [Verzuz], that kind turned me off,” she told Big Tigger on RADIO.com and V-103 days after the event. “I don’t want fight. I didn’t like that ‘battle’ stuff, so I let it go. Then, I get a call from Erykah. She was like, ‘Yo, they wanna do this battle, this Verzuz.’ Like, it sounds like it could be good, the energy just has to be right. She said, ‘What if we celebrate each other?’ I said, ‘That’s what I’m talking about!’ Celebrate each other.”
“You don’t last this long and want to destroy others,” Scott added.
