Jesse Williams is for sure dating Minka Kelly after splitting from his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee in the messiest way. The timeline of when Jesse got with Minka is still a target of speculation. If you ask Minka Kelly, like someone on Instagram recently did, she’ll tell you that she had no part in ruining his marriage.
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard about Jesse Williams and his horrid divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee (almost 3 whole weeks!). Last time we checked in with the social justice warrior who couldn’t keep it in his pants and his angrier than a cat in a hot tub estranged wife, things had quieted down considerably. The judge told the couple to stop pimping the kids on Instagram (ahem, Jesse), to not bring any romantic partners around (ahem, ahem, Jesse), and to not shit talk in front of the kids (ahem, both ya’ll). The two also agreed to 50/50 joint custody. Both parties must have played nice because now they have agreed on a financial settlement as well.
Do you feel that? That eerie calm feeling, as though the universe aligned in a weird way and the forces of drama are temporarily at rest? Enjoy it, for who knows how long it will last.
According to TMZ, Jesse Williams and his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee have finally come to some sort of a custody solution. The last time we checked in with Jesse and Aryn, it was such a mess, Swiffer, Mr. Clean, and the Scrubbing Bubbles would be like “I…can’t.” Aryn was accusing Jesse of ho’ing and road raging. Jesse was accusing Aryn of running to the press and trying to keep him from their two kids. TMZ got their hands on documents pertaining to Jesse and Aryn’s latest agreement, and here’s what’s currently up.
It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another gross dose of Jesse Williams’ divorce. Jesse seemingly forgot Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go high” directive and slammed wife Aryn Drake-Lee, accusing her of sitting around eating bon-bons and watching her stories while he’s out grinding away to pay for it all.
That’s smart of Jesse Williams to Instagram a picture of himself at work on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s a convenient way to remind people that he does do other things with his time besides publicly feuding with his estranged wife.
Earlier this week, Aryn Drake-Lee cranked her divorce battle with Jesse Williams up to 11 by demanding a judge give her sole custody of their two children, and accusing Jesse of all kinds of alleged bad daddy behavior. Like accusing Jesse of having a “revolving door” of women and scarring their kids with his rage issues. Jesse not-so-subtly swatted back at Aryn on Twitter with a quote about “desperate times.” Jesse’s publicist must have recognized that tweet from their 101 Ways To Not Handle Bad Press, because a much less petty statement was written and released yesterday by his rep regarding the situation.
“These are matters for the court to decide. Jesse has been working tirelessly to maintain his bond with their children and it is important to note that the dramatizations made in Aryn’s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind. The judge is fully informed on both sides of the story and will be making the final decision.”
That statement is so very dramatic. Not only does Jesse pull a “Well we’ll see what the judge has to say about this!“, but he also gets in some subtle digs at his estranged wife. And it ends with a total cliffhanger! That statement reads like a soap opera monologue recited by character gazing out a window while clutching a glass of brandy. Honestly, Shonda Rhimes shouldn’t worry about who is going to run her shows when she leaves ABC for Netflix. Put Jesse Williams in charge, he’s obviously well-versed in drama.
Yesterday we learned that things between Jesse Williams and his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee were just as crappy as ever. Aryn was demanding a judge scrap their joint custody agreement and grant her sole custody of their two children. She accused Jesse of emotionally damaging their kids by getting laid and road-raging with his next-door neighbor. Jesse has something to say about all of that. Sort of.
