“Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams has already disappointed a legion of female fans when he sought a divorce from his wife and mother of his two kids, Aryn Drake-Lee. But when he appeared to be stepping out on his wife before he sought the divorce, it compounded the negative feelings toward the Hollywood heartthrob.
Now it appears Williams’ wife wants sole custody of their two kids because, she says, he is exposing them to a revolving door of women.
In new divorce documents procured by TMZ, Williams’ ex-wife claims the kids have been emotionally compromised after he exposed them to at least one intimate partner and possibly more. She’s asking the judge to order him to keep girlfriends away from their children until he’s dated them for at least six months.
Drake-Lee also says Williams has a violent temper, citing a road rage incident last month with his next-door neighbor where Williams’ neighbor allegedly flipped him off following an argument. Drake-Lee claims that Williams then “aggressively pursued him in his car” with their children along for the ride. Drake-Lee even says Williams threatened to kill the man.
Williams’ estranged wife also isn’t big on her ex posting photos of their children on social media, claiming he’s doing it as “a buffer for the negative talk about him in the media.”
Is she reaching?

Do you think Drake-Lee has good reason to request sole custody based on this info? What kind of rules do you have in place for co-parenting?
Williams’ national fame and visibility skyrocketed in 2106 when he accepted the Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards and then proceeded to deliver an electric and blistering speech calling for an end to racial inequality and the police killings of Black people.
His words, which were met with a rousing ovation from the audience, inspired a Change.org petition calling for the Williams to be fired from “Grey’s Anatomy.” The creator of the petition ridiculously blamed Williams for making “a racist, hate speech against law enforcement and White people,” and called for Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator, to cut him loose, which did not succeed.
