… And the world wept!
Jesse Williams, 35, and wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, are headed for divorce after 5 years of marriage. Drake-Lee began a relationship with Williams before he became big in Hollywood as a bonafide TV star. The two met while she was a successful real estate broker and he was working as a high school and middle school teacher in New York.
The couple got hitched in September 2012, in a small private ceremony in front of close family and friends. According to theJasmineBRAND.COM:
“The Grey’s Anatomy actor and political activist pulled the plug on his marriage to the real estate broker, reportedly filing for divorce. He is said to have filed and served Aryn this month. The reason for the filing is, ‘irreconcilable differences.’”
The site also explained:
“They’re trying to keep their split top secret and away from the public. They’ve actually been separated for a while now.”
In a 2015 interview with Essence Magazine, Williams shared how beautiful and extraordinary his wife is:
“I don’t gain strength from the weakness of others. I need to be able to learn from my partner. That’s what keeps us alive. We have a mutual respect for each other and we can help each other where we need it.”
Later that year, the couple launched the first curated GIF keyboard, called the “Ebroji” App. The app includes all people and images that any race, background, religion or gender can relate to.
Sources say the spilt is “amicable.” Drake-Lee and Williams share two young children, 3-year-old daughter Sadie and 18-month-old son, Maceo. The two have yet to comment publicly in regards to their divorce.
We wish the two the best during this difficult time.
