“Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams has come up empty in his attempt to get a new trial after a judge ordered him to pay $50,000 per month in child support to his ex-wife.
On August 14, the judge presiding over Williams’ divorce from his ex, Aryn Drake-Lee, denied the actor’s motion for a new trial. The court heard arguments from both sides during the hearing and decided to side with Aryn, who was represented in court by her lawyer, Gary Fishbein.
Back in June, Williams was ordered to pay his ex a total of $50k per month in child support and another $50k in spousal support, based on his monthly income of $521,000. Jesse and Aryn share two kids from their marriage.
Last month, the actor filed docs pleading for a new trial over the child support, claiming the evidence presented did not back up the $50k a month order.
The judge apparently did not see things that way.
