Actor Jesse Williams has reached a deal with his ex Aryn Drake-Lee to end their 3-year divorce battle.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has signed off on a settlement the former couple reached. The deal will bring in an end to a nasty court battle.
The document states the two are officially single as of August 7, 2020. The two will share joint and physical custody of their 2 kids, son Maceo and daughter Sadie.
Aryn walked away with the Los Angeles home they shared along with property in Brooklyn and Oakland. She will keep a 2017 Audi Q7 SUV and 2018 Q5 SUV. Jesse was awarded a 2018 Porsche Cayenne SUV.
Jesse agreed to pay $40,000 a month in child support for their kids. He owes $50,629 per month up until October 2019, but then the amount decreases. Jesse will pay 2 more spousal support payments of $50,695 but then that will be over.
The actor will be able to keep $936,810 in profits made from “Grey’s Anatomy” since their split in 2017.
Jesse and Aryn married in 2012 and split in 2017. Back in 2018, Jesse was ordered to pay his ex-wife a total of $50,000 per month in child support plus $50,000 in spousal support, based on his monthly income of $521,000.
The actor had been trying to lower the $100,000 a month support payment, arguing the amount is well beyond what their kids needed.
The judge shut down his attempts to lower the support but the actor and his ex are were headed back to trial. During the battle, the two shared joint custody with a flexible schedule due to Jesse’s [shooting schedule for “Grey’s Anatomy.”
After the divorce, Jesse dated actress Minka Kelly for a bit before splitting in early 2018. Jesse then found love with actress Taylour Paige, who he has been dating ever since. The two seem to be getting quite serious.
The two are constantly posting each other on social media and appearing on red carpets together. Jesse looks incredibly happy to be with the gorgeous Taylour.
Taylour is the star of the upcoming film “Zola” which is based on a “infamous 148-tweet Twitter thread.”.
On the thread, “Zola meets a sex worker named Stefani at a restaurant where Zola waitresses, and the two immediately bond over pole dancing. Only a day after they exchange numbers, Stefani invites Zola on a cross-country road trip, where the goal is to make as much money as possible dancing in Florida strip clubs. Zola agrees, and suddenly she is trapped in the craziest, most unexpected trip of her life, partaking in a wild two-day trip with Stefani, her boyfriend Derrek, and Stefani’s violent pimp,”
