Actor Jesse Williams & His Ex-Wife Ordered To Attend ‘High Conflict’ Parenting Class Amid Custody Support Battle
It’s been months since Jesse Williams and his ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee’s divorce was finalized in October 2020. But it looks like the two are still battling over custody of their two children Maceo, 5, and Sadie, 7.
A judge has ordered the “Grey’s Anatomy” star and real estate broker Aryn Drake-Lee to attend an online “high conflict” parenting class, according to court documents obtained by TMZ Monday (April 12th). The course has six sessions and gives tips for helping resolve issues while co-parenting.
The judge’s ruling comes after Jesse Williams’ failed attempt to edit court orders concerning their children.
The two are currently sharing joint and physical custody, but are said to be having a difficult time.
Throughout their divorce, they had very public disagreements over custody and rumors he was dating actress Minka Kelly. They also disagreed about child support.
When their divorce was finalized in October, Jesse Williams was ordered to pay $40,000 in child support each month, plus $100,000 over two payments in spousal support. Williams was permitted to keep the $936,810 he earned from his role on “Grey’s Anatomy” after they separated on April 11, 2017. The other income would be split. Aryn Drake-Lee was awarded their home and they each kept their respective cars.
Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee were married for five years when he filed for divorce in 2017.
He is currently dating actress Taylour Paige.
