JESSE WILLIAMS ADDRESSES CHEATING RUMORS IN JAY-Z’s NEW VIDEOJuly 11, 2017
The Grey’s Anatomy star joined the rap mogul and other stars to talk about relationships in the new clip released on Tidal.
Although Williams never named his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee, the actor got candid about their split.
“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years, 13 years,” Williams says in the video. “And all of a sudden motherf***ers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship — like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life, like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart — that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.”
Williams filed for divorce in April after marrying Drake-Lee in September 2012. The couple had been dating for over five years before tying the knot. They have two children: three-year-old daughter Sadie and son Maceo, born in 2015.
The former couple are in the midst of a nasty custody battle with Williams claiming Drake-Lee has denied him access to the children.
After their breakup, Williams was reportedly linked to Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly. Rumors swirled that he and Kelly got together while he was still married.
While that was never confirmed, Williams and Kelly were spotted out together on Monday night.
