Jesse Williams‘ ex-wife wants the actor to cough up hundreds of thousands of dollars so she can pay her lawyers to help battle the actor in their upcoming trial.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Aryn Drake-Lee is requesting her ex pay her lawyer $100,000. She is also asking for an additional $100,000 for a forensic accountant she used to prepare for the upcoming divorce trial.
Drake-Lee says that Williams has already paid $270,000 towards her legal bills so far in the divorce but she needs more to prep for the trial scheduled for September.
During the trial, Drake-Lee is expected to argue for no reduction in the support the “Grey’s Anatomy” star pays her per month. He has been battling her to try and lower it down from the current $100,000 a month, saying it’s way too high. She also believes Williams owes her close to $1 million in retroactive support.
Jesse Williams currently pays her $100k a month in support ($50k for child and spousal). This number was based on his average monthly income of $521,000.
Drake-Lee and Williams currently have joint legal custody with a flexible physical custody plan to accommodate his “Grey’s Anatomy” shooting schedule.
She also wanted a consistent schedule, saying her ex doesn’t provide her with his “Grey’s” shooting schedule but wants him to turn it over weekly.
Jesse and Aryn married in 2012 and split in 2017. They share two kids from their marriage.
