Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee’s divorce battle is getting ugly. Well, more ugly. This mess has been going on for a long time. But Aryn is still coming for that Grey’s Anatomy money (and it’s so much damn money!) and not only wants Jesse to pay child and spousal support but also pay for her legal fees.
The Blast is reporting:
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Williams is asking a judge to deny Aryn Drake-Lee’s motion requesting he pay her $200,000 for her legal bills and to hire a forensic accountant to prep for the upcoming divorce trial.
Jesse Williams’s currently pays her $100.000 in support ($50k for child and spousal). This number was based on his average monthly income of $521,000.
Even with that insane amount of money he’s bringing in, Jesse is claiming he’s paid enough of Aryn’s legal bills and she needs to learn how to budget.
Williams says he has already paid $270,000 toward his ex’s legal bills in the case. He claims the court already determined that was more than enough.
The actor argues that Aryn is capable of contributing more toward her own fees, pointing out he pays her $100k a month in support alone. He accuses her of using her support to buy artwork and not pay her lawyers.
Williams wants the judge to deny her motion, saying “this is not a free ride” and is asking her to pay her own bills moving forward.
Any episode of Antiques Roadshow will tell you that sometimes buying art (usually found at the yard sale of an oldie) can pay off! But with that being said, Grey’s is in its 15th season, so maybe some financial planning wouldn’t hurt here?
Jesse also claims that he’s not responsible for Aryn’s poor investments.
He also notes that during the trial, “Aryn will likely claim she is losing money on her businesses yet even assuming this true, Jesse should not be prejudiced as a result of Aryn’s poor investment choices.”
Poor investment choices?! Aryn went from being a realtor who paid the bills while Jesse was trying to make it, and then he did and brought in that Shonda Rhimes money. Her investment choices are spot on! In fact, she should be teaching a Learning Annex class on how to #getthatmoney and then make your ex pay for taking his money.
