Jesse Williams’ Ex-Wife Demands Primary Custody Of Kids

Jesse Williams' ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee has demanded primary custody of the children she shares with the actor.

According to legal documents obtained by Radar Online, Aryn says that Jesse has failed to comply with the court-ordered co-parenting schedule.

She says that his work schedule is very disruptive and that he even fired a nanny without consulting her. Aryn says his decisions "have resulted in increased inconsistency, longer absences, regular last-minute cancelations and other issues which are incredibly disruptive to our children's lives."

"I am requesting modification of the custody schedule and other provisions of the judgment to better reflect the new reality of our lives, and most importantly, properly and positively address the needs of our children," she wrote.

Aryn continued, "I have tried to communicate with Jesse to resolve these issues to no avail. In May 2020, I sent a detailed communication with my concerns about their health and exhaustion, which Jesse read and ignored. Since then, I have sent multiple messages about the recurring issues, but he has continued this trend of not participating in meaningful conversations or strategies about their health."
