Jesse Williams Seeks Primary Custody After Ex Wife's Instagram Rants

For the past few weeks actor Jesse Williams' ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee had been dragging him for blood and bone in an Instagram series she dubbed "'receipt season" that abruptly ended without reaching its grand finale [click here if you missed that]. 

Now we know why...

From Radar Online  

Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has rushed back to court demanding his ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee’s joint custody be reconsidered after she allegedly violated the court order, RadarOnline.com has learned.
He said Drake-Lee was the one who demanded the provision prohibiting either party from posting pictures of their kids as part of their original settlement. She argued it put the kids at “risk of imminent harm.”
Then, Williams said Drake-Lee violated the court order by posting images of their kids on her public Instagram account and “openly disparaging me claiming I am “abusing, harassing” and “gaslighting.”
Williams said Drake-Lee has been trashing him and encouraging further negative commentary. “Aryn knows full well how closely the press follows our case. I feel that she has made these posts with the express purpose of attempting to negatively impact my image via the press. Not only will our children eventually see these posts,” he wrote. “Aryn’s manic loop of empty allegations, false attacks and illnesses without a single shred of evidence in over 5 years is completely divorced from reality and totally unproductive,” he added.
The actor said he found out about the posts from other parents at their kids’ school. Williams said he has spent his life in service and building a reputation that directly impacts his career.
“I was an employee of Disney for over a decade, just released a studio film for kids and finished production on another film where the two main characters are 9 and 14 year old girls. Messy allegations labeling me with terms like “abuser”/“harasser” - any of these libelous comments, no matter how unfounded, can absolutely negatively impact careers, now more than ever,” he added.
The ruling is pending.

We tried to warn her! All she had to do was take the L, take the money, and STFU. But no, this heffa just had to keep poking the bear!! Black women everywhere begged her to enjoy her coins and move on with her life, before he pulled this exact move. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I hope he wins

She seems like she is on course to become a 'bunny boiler'. Get kids and run ...

Why is it so hard for either of them just to STFU and hash this out in court? Give the kids to the grandparents and restrict them with restraining orders. Teach them both a lesson! This is about the kids and not their dumb petty BS!

I think the fame changed Jesse. They would still be together if he never became famous.

I truly believe that

12:05 sure did. Now he’s about to take her babies and those checks. It’s like watching Siovaughn all over again. Smh.

He is in no position to be a full time parent. If he wins these kids will be raised by nannies.

I said it I said girl hush before you lose your kids but noooooo!! Ppl have to understand family law! You can not keep kids away from the other parent it’s called parental alienation and can cause you to lose custody! You can not speak negatively about the other parent to the kids or to any sources where it will get back to the kids you can lose custody. You can not continue to complain that child support is lot enough when you get way more in child support than most ppl working a full a time job they will say you can’t afford your kids and you will lose custody don’t believe me ask Luda baby momma, ask Dwade ex wife, ask usher ex wife! And this is just not happening with celebs it’s starting to happen in everyday court especially if the man or other parent pursue the claims.

At least the Nannie’s won’t be on social media constantly. Their focus will be on the children as should hers.

Still team Aryn. She can’t handle social media but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been gaslighted into appearing to be the bad parent. Jesse don’t give fks about anyone but himself. He felt free to move 3,000 miles away from his kids and cut his salary by 95% because that might help his career. It didn’t help his children and it sure didn’t help Aryn.

So true, but this woman is so blind to see it. He gave her enough rope to hang herself. Not saying he's innocent--I believe he is a straight douche for what he's done to her. We were all focused on him cheating with Minka but he actually cheated on her best friend, and still with her for all these years. It would make Aryn very bitter, but it's really clouding her judgment, that she doesn't see that getting the public on your side by posting pics and info about the children and him will get you on the wrong side of family court. It defeats the purpose, and she knows better as a former lawyer. She's so close to losing custody and it seems as though they have a judge that does not play about not abiding by the court order.

I just hope she doesn't do anything to the children in retaliation if she does lose custody. It seems it's the only thing of value that she does have. I feel sorry for the children involved in this mess.

3:09pm This woman was receiving alot of money every month he can't take a different job that could further his career? At this point he's the only one working. none of us know what happened in this relationship but at what point do you move on? This isn't about the kids it's her using them in another way to get back at him.

Of course he can take a career sidestep. But yall keep ignoring how much that upended Aryn’s life. Her income was reduced by 95%. The kids were forced to redeye cross country on a regular basis and miss school days. Yall act like she had no right to be pissed off. I just know my kids wouldn’t be missing no school and no sleep for anyone. Nigga hopped on a plane and left town, he can hop on a plane to visit his kids.

Her income? Her income was supplemented by her ex husband. If Jesse reduced child support payments, to further his career, then she needs to get a job to keep her children accustomed to whatever lifestyle she feels they've become accustomed to. Aryn sacrificed a lot for Jesse and their marriage; and now, after everything he's put her through, she doesn't feel like she should have to sacrifice anything further, but she's wrong. Their union produced children, children that both she and Jesse are responsible for. So, wherever Jesse is lacking (financially or professionally) she needs to hold up the other end where he's falling short. However, it's Aryn's bitterness that's keeping her from sacrificing for her family; she feels like since Jesse earned millions before, he's more capable of sacrificing and providing than she is, and that's not only untrue (as Jesse claims she was flipping million dollar homes in real estate) , but it's an unfair standard that she set because she's still hurting.

This has never been about the kids, their schedule, or the financial support; it's always been about the way their marriage ended and the betrayal that she feels everytime Jesse's name is mentioned. I pray for Aryn's mental and emotional well-being. Getting over a hurt like this can take a lifetime. But just like other posters mentioned, Aryn, was playing a dangerous game when she decided to blast her ex on social media. That deranged yt woman in the UK (Alice Evans) who had a psychotic break when her husband left her and moved on with someone else. Now the yt actor has all the amo he needs to take full custody while living his best life with the woman he left his wife for. Aryn needs to view Alice Evan's situation as a cautionary tale for what can go wrong when you air your anger out on social media smh.

She look like the type to hurt the kids cause she know it’ll hurt him. I hope someone other than her is with the kids at all times..

@3:09 & 6:10, this women is an ivy league educated former lawyer. Key word FORMER. Sis needs to get a job like every other able-bodied bodied mother who works to support her family. Depending on a man for sole financial support in this day and age is simply not smart, no matter who he is.

At this point she's being a Bitter Betty and should move on with her life in order focus on how she can best support herself and her kids. And I am not #TeamJessie, but sis truly needs to see this man for who he is now, and leave him alone outside of trying to responsibly co-parent before her actions causes her to lose custody of the children..

You all be writing scripts on someone else’s life. It’s all interpretation.

Because she doesn’t want her kids to commute across country and miss school she’s a bad mother? Why can’t he do like most separated parents and get them on holidays?

Anonymous said...

Because that's what the court ordered. She needs to abide by the judge's order. He is the only one that knows all the facts of the case from both sides, and can decide to take custody away if she cannot follow these instructions. As a former lawyer, she should know this. She needs to watch her step.

Anonymous said...

That was a temporary order which she is now challenging in court before it becomes permanent. If it were me I would challenge it too. He can have the kids on school vacations. He can have the kids if he comes to L.A. She’s not trying to keep the kids from him permanently.
Do any of you even understand her case? She has followed all the current custody rules. She hasn’t violated any order, but she has challenged it. Like she has a legal right to. But somehow challenging it makes her a dead eyed pitiful sister who might kill her children. Glad I don’t live in your world.

LOL. Jesse don't want the kids. Like who is going to care for them while he is rehearsing and performing? His GF? Right. LOL. And with what $ can he afford a nanny, chauffeur, security guard etc. Where will they live while with him performing on broadway etc. He would need a bigger apt. What school will they attend in NYC. He would need to rush and take them out of school and away from their friends. How will the kids react. Or he could keep them in Cali with Who? Alrighty tighty. Jesse stopped f ing around with the ex. She's the most stable one right now with the kids.

If you know how NYC actors live, Jesse’s in some 300 sq. ft. overpriced luxury studio apartment near Lincoln Center. He doesn’t even have room for the kids to sleep in the bathtub.

The kids can be home schooled. by Nannie’s. He can work on Broadway knowing the kids are safe.

10:57, Jesse isn't some random, struggling actor. I assure you, he's not living in a tint shack, especially if he can afford to fly his children back and forth regularly.

Anonymous said...

Not a shack but something that lets him walk to Broadeay. And it’s small because it’s NYC. Jesse is rich and he has millions stashed. He made $500,000 a week on Greys.

I wish him the best. Get his kids in a safe environment and prioritize his kids in his schedule. He will be fine. I’m all for him getting full custody. Aryn isn’t mentally stable to raise them. Get your children, Jessie!

Anonymous said...

Mark my words. This man will not seek custody because he does not want the kids. What’s so hard to figure out here. He just wants the fame and the success. He’s not like say Will Smith who actually nurtures and supports all (Despite all the other stuff).
