Jesse Williams along with his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, are currently fighting over money as well as custody of their children. However, the courts have allegedly sided with Drake-Lee, as the Grey’s Anatomy star reportedly must pay a hefty sum to his soon-to-be-ex-wife.
Not only will the actor and self-proclaimed political activist pay his wife child support, but the performer has to cough up alimony payments as well – not to mention fees for attorneys.
In a report from TMZ, Drake-Lee apparently filed legal documents which included a settlement that stated the Hollywood actor would pay $100,000 in spousal and child support as well as $60,000 to cover the cost of her lawyers.
The papers indicate that the payment will come in three separate installments which all come from his success on the medical drama TV series.
And while the statements make it seem as though their divorce has been amicable, insiders close to the couple claim their legal separation continues to be nasty.
Celebrity Insider readers will remember a report recently which claimed Drake-Lee wanted primary custody of their children as well as child support. The reason she stated was that Williams was “too busy with celebrity soccer games,” rather than raising their two kids together.
Sources close to the TV star said, “Jesse never expected to shoot into superstardom. Success changes people, that much is for certain. Drake-Lee is upset because he stated that they would stay together forever but that’s a difficult promise to keep when you turn into a Hollywood celebrity. She has a bit of resentment and jealousy of Williams; it seems like she wants to torture him in the courts.”
