Jesse Williams Left Wife To Be Single In Hollywood
The speculation continues surrounding “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams and his divorce from wife Aryn Drake-Lee. theJasmineBRAND.com broke the story, Jesse filed earlier this month, ending his five marriage. Neither have commented on their split, but according to a new report, Jesse pulled the plug because he wanted to be single.
Sources told us Drake-Lee — who has worked in real estate and the art world — was his rock and the main breadwinner until Williams scored his big role on “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2009. They’ve been together for 13 years, married in 2012, and have two children. Williams’ rise in Hollywood is to blame for the actor’s change of heart about his marriage, friends believe. “She poured money into this relationship and sacrificed her life for him, and now he wants to go out and be the hot single Hollywood guy. Jesse wants to .?.?. do whatever he thinks will make him a bigger star. He’s drinking his own Kool-Aid and it’s ‘the Jesse show.’ He’s dead f?-?-?king wrong. He did not respect those vows. He wants to be single,” the source said.
Jesse has been linked to Derek Jeter’s ex Minka Kelly. Earlier this year, the pair were photographed together in France. A source denies they’re together, stating:
They’re working on a video game with quite a few other people.
Reportedly, Jesse’s wife was criticized in the media for not looking like a Hollywood starlet when she was photographed with him.
“When you hear people saying, ‘Why aren’t you with someone hotter or with this actress?’ I’m sure that placed a strain on their relationship,” the first source said, adding that Williams will try to portray the divorce as amicable. “It’s bulls?-?-?t .?.?. They’re going to paint a picture like he’s been separated for a very long time, but the truth is that he left her.”
No additional details about their split have been shared.
