Jesse Williams Says Estranged Wife Restricting Time w/ Kids
Jesse Williams is reportedly battling with his estranged wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, for joint physical custody of their two children. The Grey’s Anatomy actor claims in legal docs that Aryn is putting restrictions on when and how he sees his daughter Sadie and son, Maceo. He also maintains that he is an active father.
Aryn’s lawyers have responded, stating in legal docs:
Aryn restricts my time with the children and decides when, and for how long I may have them. She has rejected, without any reason, each and every request I have made to have the children sleepover at my residence. On the few days that I have the children, Aryn has insisted that my time with the children be limited during the week to approximately two-and-a-half hours per day, despite my requests for more time, including overnights with the children.
Protecting the privacy and well-being of their children is of paramount importance to Aryn Drake-Lee Williams. It is unfortunate that Mr. Williams has chosen to draw public attention to this difficult time and transition for their family. Aryn is solely interested in the best interests of their children, supporting a healthy relationship with both parents, and protecting the children’s privacy. Therefore, she will not comment any further on Mr. Williams’ unilateral and unfortunate public allegations.
