Jesse Williams’ Divorce From Aryn Drake-Lee Is Final After 3 Years, Actor To Pay $40,000 A Month In Child Support

Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams is officially divorced from his now ex-wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. 

The two were considered legally single after a judge approved a settlement agreement between them on Aug. 7. The final papers were filed on Oct. 9.

The details of the divorce include joint legal and physical custody of their two children, daughter Sadie, 6, and son Maceo, 5. Jesse Williams will pay $40,000 a month for child support. They’re also not allowed to post any photos of their children on social media without speaking to each other first.

Jesse Williams will keep the money he’s made from the popular ABC show Grey’s Anatomy since their separation, totaling $936,810. He doesn’t have to pay spousal support since he reportedly paid off two outstanding payments from last year.

When it comes to Aryn Drake-Lee, she will walk away with the family’s home they once shared in Los Angeles, and a home in New York and Oakland, California. They will each keep their own cars.

theJasmineBRAND previously broke the story that Jesse Williams was preparing to divorce Aryn Drake-Lee back in April 2017. They were married for five years at the time.

He filed because of “irreconcilable differences.”

An insider told us back then:

“They’re trying to keep their split top secret and away from the public. They’ve actually been separated for awhile now.”

Aryn Drake-Lee, who works as a real estate broker, has managed to stay out of the spotlight since their split.

Jesse Williams has since been linked to actress Minka Kelly, who he reportedly dated before filing for divorce.

More recently, he’s been dating actress Taylour Paige since early last year.
