Jesse Williams has been playing a hard game of denial for months with his maybe-girlfriend Minka Kelly in an attempt to kill that pesky rumor that he left his wife Aryn Drake-Lee for her. The rumor wouldn’t stop; sources kept opening their mouths and ratting him out, saying yes, he was absolutely getting with Minka Kelly. Jesse recently appeared on Jay-Z’s Footnotes for 4:44 denying once more that his marriage didn’t die because “a girl I work with is cute.“Jesse, we get it. Minka didn’t wink at you and send you running for your lawyer’s office for divorce papers. He can deny that, but he can’t exactly deny they’re together.
Sources are talking about Jesse’s current relationship status, which by the sounds of things could be classified as: “In a semi-serious thing with a cute girl from work.” A source tells People that Jesse and Minka, who are working together right now on a video game, are dating and “having a good time.” Meanwhile, another source tells UsWeekly that they’ve been dating for a while now.
“It’s been a few months. They’re legit.”
A few months ago was also when Jesse’s divorce papers were filed, so make of this timing what you will. The source adds that they were keeping their relationship fairly quiet until they got papped at the movies on Monday night. Speaking of, a source tell Page Six that movie date – as if you even needed to be told – was a legit date. However, that same source has feelings about the truly suspicious timing, saying that the only reason Jesse and Aryn are getting divorced is because “the relationship ran its course.”
One of the reasons given for why Jesse reportedly wanted out of his marriage was because he’s gone Hollywood. I know Jesse and Minka are playing coy with these clandestine Monday night movie dates, but they really don’t have to anymore. We know you’re dating. Jesse, just come out with it so you can go full-Hollywood with your relationship by getting papped leaving Catch or strolling around The Grove.
