Jesse Williams' Ex Wife Sets the Record Straight


Over the past few weeks actor Jesse Williams's ex wife, Aryn Drake Lee, has been publicly discussing their child custody issues in a series she has dubbed "#receiptseason [click here if you missed that]." 

In the latest installment Aryn details how the couple met in their early twenties and how she was the main provider before his acting career took off...

She did build him up. I am in a identical situation (before it went all wrong for her) and did not just walk into someone flush with cash and established when we met. I can see where she’s coming from.

My friends mom also worked as a private school teacher in South Pasadena to support her now ex husband through law school. Yes, he did eventually create himself a successful practice in LA, but she deserves every penny of that alimony. End of story.

So, let me make sure I understand the timeline: from 2003 to 2009, you supported Jesse financially; that's 6yrs of financial support. Jesse supported you and your family for over 10 years. Aryn has been reimbursed x 2. Marriages are not an investment guarantee. Sometimes they work out, and sometimes they don't. Stop holding the man hostage for sacrifices that *you* decided to make for 6 years. The man has earned millions and has supported you for over 10 years, please let that victim narrative go. The man did you dirty, but using your children as emotional pawns is only going to hurt them in the long run. Let it go....

An investment is just that- an investment. Nothing in life is guaranteed. There's broke dudes out here doing this same shit. Her marriage didn't last. She ain't the first person this happened to, she won't be the last. This two-year pity party is getting old. I can understand being hurt initially, but at some point, you gotta suck it up and move on with your life.

Rule 1. Never "build" no man unless you talking about ken dolls and such.

I don't think this is the drag she thought it was. She just proved that she is fully capable of working and making well above living wages. So essentially, they supported each other, which is what committed folks do.

That’s where you went wrong lady YOU coddled this grown man SUPPORTED him PROVIDED for him you assumed the makes role in the situation if he wanted you and wanted to build with you he should have been working multiple jobs and Auditioning to make his dream come true. It was his dream so he should have been doing the sacrificing . You courted and supported this man. That’s why he moved on to someone else. Is it right? NO! But wtf does this has to do with custody and visitation that has been ordered through the court? You divorce is final why are we even talking about this? It shows you are still hurt. Lady please abide by the courts order for visitation before you lose your kids! And stay off the internet!

He "married up" and later got on his feet, then the tables turned. The end.

Something wrong with each and every comment on this post. She supported him and made wise choices. Now she is making another wise choice by getting each and every coin from him that she deserves. Wishing her well on this endeavor.

Every time you hassle this lady I then start rooting for her even more. Glad she got rid of her naked acting no personality husband. Just saying.

I missed the part were he held a gun to her head she needs to get over the fact that she is not going to get the amount of child support she wants she chose to start a relationship with him she chose to continue the relationship with him she chose to have children with him and now that he chose to leave she seems to be taking it personal believe me the court is all in his sh!t so they decide what is fair and just not him she is upset that he is a creative and is pursuing stage work for the love of the work and less money and fame this is somethings creatives do something she was well aware of for all of the previous years they were together this is who she chose so it is in fact partly what she chose she is bitter that he left her and looking for her pound of flesh she needs to accept the fact that this is the ruling of the court and they have the say in this not her emotions

Okay this lady stood by her guy through it all. Now they are divorced. Now he has success and now he wants to be creative and cheat her out of coins. Ok. She should have got creative back then and just did the bare minimum. He would not have become successful and would have floundered and blamed her. See how that works. Get your coins lady. You deserve it.

No one who cares about this woman should cosign her publicly embarrassing herself like this. People who love you will encourage you to seek help. This isn't healthy or cute. The fact is that in an ideal world, people do what we want th to do. But in the real world, shit happens. And the key to happiness is an ability to brush it off and move forward.

You got your prize. A man that is gorgeous and out your league. Now you had his kids, and you got a divorce. Move on. Shallow play.

He paid her back, I guess. He just didn’t want to share his heart with her anymore. All these women be thinking they got a Denzel Washington, Samuel Jackson, Morris Chestnut. You got a ninja with a selfish heart, sister girl. Sorry! Not that many black men in the industry wants to be with a real woman who has their back from the beginning.

Anonymous said...

Now that she said all that, I believe he used her. Not saying it’s right. He saw her as his cushion to not be on the street while he reached for his dreams. She’s feeling like crap now.

Kedarbenjudah said...

@ 1:33 so how is anyone getting cheated the courts decide what he pays and it is always a percentage of what he makes so if he is paying less he must be keeping less both happen because he is making less he is not making her suffer he is not giving her less and keeping more your
@1:52 sounds like he is taking care of his business to me and everyone else child support department included
is there something you know that the rest of us don't ?

People should remember that there is only one person in this relationship who has a full time spin doctor publicist on staff. Jesse’s story sounds more coherent because he his communicating with advice from professionals. Believe me, it makes a huge difference.

@3:39 Sam Jackson got a real black sistuh he’s been married to for 40 years. It’s possible, even in Hollywood.

She kept buying property and gaves him keys! Girl bye.
...BTW NEVER post a selfie from this angle again!

Anonymous said...

5:01 right. I can see right through the smoke and mirrors. I just wish she’d stop posting about him. She’s giving him all the energy he wants. Let him have/ speak to his kids and keep all that frustration between herself and a therapist until it’s time to hash it out in court. She needs to act unbothered, and when he gets the next big gig…drag him right back to court. I hope the judge disagrees with those kids flying across the country to see him, and make him travel instead too.

Dee said...

WE DON'T CARE GIRL!!!! Your marriage is over. He doesn't want you anymore. Let it TF GO!!! Go to therapy. Get a job. Learn how to co-parent and get TF ON with your life. STOP POSTING YOUR BUSINESS ON SOCIAL MEDIA. GO TO COURT. WE ARE NOT THE JUDGES OF YOUR CASE. We can't do SHIT about any of it. So STFU!

She’s insecure. Jessie is the type that make women like her go insane. I hope she continues running to social media making herself look stupid and using the children as a coverup for her hurt. Women like her always do.

^You don’t know this woman so you’re just making sht up. Jesse is manipulating the press because he has a pr machine behind him. She keeps trying to get her story out but she’s doing it badly. She is absolutely right not to accommodate him when it will negatively affect the kids. He left town. She didn’t.

Unknown said...

He left town to support Aryn and their children; that counts for something. Aryn is using the children as emotional folly. If anyone is trying to manipulate the situation, it's Aryn. She was better off remaining quiet. Didn't her attorney quit? Or, did she fire them? There's something off about her .

** He left town**
You all sound really stupid! He’s an actor not a supervisor in a supermarket.

The children are based in Cali. He could have continued to work in Cali but he chose to move to NYC. The kids shouldn’t have to suffer to accommodate his choice.

Jessie is working on Broadway in New York. It is a temporary move. The play is set to run for 14 weeks. They agreed to weekend visits per the courts. One phone call a day. That isn’t that hard. Seriously. This woman is making a mountain hole of a temporary situation . It’s work. The children are obviously running the household because the mother sure isn’t.

Unknown said...

@4:58
Lol exactly! Talking about the kids shouldn't be inconvenienced...who's the parent here? Jesse is creating opportunities so that he won't have to work and travel as extensively, and so that his kids will be provided for. An adult understand compromises and sacrifices for something bigger than immediate gratification; a child doesn't. That's why we have courts that determine child custody arrangements instead of the children of the parents. If I were Jesse, I'd cut the middle man (Aryn) and just take full custody. It's obvious no parenting is happening in that household.

These publicist and paid shit stirrers are grasping for straws. This ninja and all like him should be held accountable for their diabolical and disrespectful actions against their families.

Susie said...

Look at 'his' name though.

Anonymous said...

It's diabolical to get a divorce? Half of all marriages end that way. They are divorced. Irresconsible differences covers all disagreements. She can no longer control his career choices as he doesn't control hers. The courts decide on where that little money goes for child support. If she wants more money, get a job.Stop revisiting your past and focus on your future.

Crap happens. Move on. Nothing in life is guaranteed. But get along for the sake of your kids. This seems like unnecessary drama.

Anonymous said...

Seriously, no one here has ever tried to get a 6 and an 8 year old to talk on the phone when they don’t want to. One call a day is a lot, even if it sounds like it’s not. Kids don’t want to talk on the phone at that age.

It’s hard but it’s life. Set them on a schedule. If he misses it. Oh well. Try again another day. That’s part of parenting. People like you are a joke. Sounding like white people who commit suicide because their credit cards are maxed out. Dumb parents. Aryn is dumb for running to social media like people can’t see it’s not about the kids.
