Actor and activist Jesse Williams filed to divorce his wife Aryn Drake Lee-Williams after five years of marriage and ten years into their relationship. The couple has two children together, a son named Maceo and daughter named Sadie.
According to online reports, Jesse's reason for divorce officially is "irreconcilable differences."
But there's more. According to the website Blindgossip.com Jesse is dating actress MINKA KELLY, and the two have been dating for at least the last couple of months. Here's what they are saying:
We walked along with them for almost three blocks in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. They were trying to be incognito. He was wearing a hoodie and she was wearing a cap but I recognized them immediately. He looked a little tense and was trying hard not to be noticed. She looked very happy and content. They were holding hands and being very romantic. They were definitely acting like a couple!
This Instagram post proves that the two were in Paris together. Officially the two were "working," but who knows:
Many of Jesse's fans are UPSET with his decision to divorce his wife - and start dating a White woman, especially after Jesse's FIERY "pro-Black" speech at last years BET awards. Jesse dedicated the speech to "the black women in particular who have spent their lifetimes dedicated to nurturing everyone before themselves." It's not clear whether his wife was one of those women he dedicated the speech to.
The reaction to Jesse's divorce has been swift and brutal. Many of his African-American followers are threatening to BOYCOTT all of his future projects. His twitter timeline and Instagram comments are currently in UTTER SHAMBLES.
We haven't seen a man go from so LOVED by African-American women to so DESPISED . . . in a long time.
