Three months have past since we’ve had to think about Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee. I hope you enjoyed your time off. I know I did. I took a trip to Mexico, finally went to see Black Panther, started eating fewer carbs, and then went back to eating carbs. During that whole time I didn’t think about Jesse Williams once! Vacations over, folks. According to TMZ, Aryn needs more money for the kids.
Back in January, Aryn accused Jesse of violating their custody agreement by bringing unsanctioned cupcakes to his daughter’s school and introducing the kids to a mystery woman name “Mama c,” who turned out to be just a family friend. Now Aryn is complaining that the $50,695 in spousal support Jesse is supposed to pay just isn’t enough. She claims she needs at least $73,369 to cover their costs because clearly these children need new ponies every year for their birthdays.
I know kids are expensive, it’s one of the reasons I don’t have any. I’m selfish like that. But I didn’t know they were THAT expensive! Aryn says it’s for “clothes, food, traveling outside L.A. to visit family, swimming and dance lessons, child care and tuition”. I guess if they shop at Paris Fashion Week, eat peanut butter and caviar sammies, visit family on the International Space Station, get private swimming lessons from Michael Phelps, dance lessons from Misty Copeland, get babysat by Oprah and attend Hogwarts, then maybe.
Aryn claims Jesse can afford it since he makes at least $250k per “Grey’s Anatomy” episode, so she wants to be reimbursed for what she’s had to cover so far.
Aryn also wants Jesse to pay her $200,000 to cover her legals fees even though he already agreed to kick down $60,000 for that. Aryn says she’s paying 100% of the kids’ bills right now, so it’s unclear if Jesse has been coming through with those payments he agreed to when their custody arrangement was finalized in September, or if he’s looking to be crowned World’s #1 Wealthiest Deadbeat Dad. Who am I kidding, he would probably rank closer to World’s #898574 Wealthiest Deadbeat Dad.
