There was a real-life Grinch skulking around with a heart two sizes too small this Christmas, and according to Jesse Williams that Grinch was his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee. Aaaaaand (checks watch) that makes it three months and six days that Jesse and Aryn were to stop fighting over custody issues.
In September, Jesse and Aryn agreed to a custody agreement in which they would share joint legal custody of their two children. However the details of a physical custody agreement weren’t known. In November, Jesse won overnight weekend visits with his kids, but over Christmas, he didn’t get any overnight visits. And TMZ says Jesse complained to a judge about that.
Jesse claims Aryn was greedy and wouldn’t give up the kids on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Day. Jesse alleges that Aryn has been stingy with the visits, and rarely answers FaceTime calls. Jesse accuses Aryn of ignoring 2 out of 3 calls, and only lets the kids talk for a couple minutes on 1 out of the 3 calls she answers. That’s not really a new accusation. Back in the summer, Jesse accused Aryn of ignoring most of his FaceTime calls, and keeping the kids distracted with television when she did answer them. At least the TV isn’t on during those 33.3% of calls, right? Baby steps.
Jesse has asked a judge to grant him two custody visits a week, and institute a regular visitation schedule.
I’m sure Jesse would love an explanation for why she wouldn’t let him see his kids on New Year’s Day. Maybe it had something to do with Jesse partying with models and friends in Brazil. Finding not one, but two child’s size all-white outfits made from bedroom curtains the night before an international flight isn’t exactly something you can do at the last minute, Jesse.
