You may remember that Jesse Williams of Grey’s Anatomy is getting divorced from his wife of 5-ish years, Aryn Drake-Lee. It’s been happening since 2017 and it’s still going. Most recently, they had been fighting over child support, which was a common theme over the course of the break up. Well, that’s all solved now and they’re going to get back to focusing on parenting their two children. JK, now they’re fighting about money again.
The Blast reports that Aryn is putting her hand out, palm up, and asking Jesse to put a lot more money in it. Currently, Aryn is getting a cool $100,000 a month in chid support. That’s some expensive children, eh? But Aryn filed court documents saying she’s willing to make some changes. She is willing to get less a month (can you believe?) as long as Jesse pays her retroactive child support. Lets get into some numbers.
Aryn is willing to drop her spousal support from $50,000 a month to a small $29,918. I know, what sacrifice. But! She still wants her child support of $50,000 a month to stay the same because Jesse is rich, and she also wants $737,605 in retroactive child support. But Aryn isn’t greedy, she’s fully willing to deduct $100,ooo which she considers already paid, and is ready to accept only $637,605. And she also wants retroactive spousal support, because spousal and child are different. She wants $251,602 in back spousal support too.
Aryn also wants to keep the Los Angeles mansion they lived in, as well as a Brooklyn home she bought, and she’s eyeing an Oakland home, so she’s got some payments to make. She also wants Jesse’s residuals to keep getting split amongst the two of them and she wants her slice of a $796,800 “profit participation check” that Disney paid him. I had to put that in quotes because I’m poor and don’t understand what profit sharing is.
Aryn is laying it on thick, telling the courts that she used to be a real estate agent and had to quit to help Jesse’s career so she deserves the money he makes now. She has invested in some businesses since the divorce, but none of them earned her anything.
As for the children: Jesse and Aryn share custody and have a “flexible physical custody plan” because Jesse is making out with other fake doctors on camera at all hours of the day. But Aryn wants consistency. She says the kids “often do not know from day to day whether Petitioner will be exercising time.” Aryn claims Jesse will cancel time with his kids and demand make-up time later. She wants Jesse to send her his schedule because she wants to know if he’s cancelling to work or cancelling to bang hot sportscasters, or Vh1 actresses.
Oh and one more thing, Aryn is still asking the judge not to let either of them (Jesse) introduce new relationships (hoes) to the children until they’ve dated for at least six months. She also doesn’t want him posting the kids on any social media. They have a hearing set up later this month so they can set a trial date. Well girl, I hope you get that money. I don’t know if you should be holding your breath for those dating stipulations though. Can’t change a leopard’s spots, you know what I mean? That man-hoe has to hoe.
