And all of the hearts all over the world collectively break. Actor/Activist Jessie Williams and Aryn Drake Lee will be heading to the divorce court.
According to TMZ, Sources close to the couple tell us the “Grey’s Anatomy” star and wife of almost 5 years filed for divorce last week. It’s unclear who filed, but we’re told the split is amicable. They have 2 young kids together — son, Maceo and daughter, Sadie. Jesse and Aryn got married on September 1, 2012.
According to E News:
Jesse and Aryn dated for more than five years before marrying, first meeting when the actor was working as a schoolteacher in New York.
He told USA Today in 2010, “I was a teacher when I met her, so she’s been with me through all different facets of my career. She’s stuck with me through thick and thick and thick and thin.”
“We know each other in and out, and she was very happy to move out here,” Jesse added, referencing their relocation to Los Angeles. “She loves California and was tired of the weather on the East Coast.”In 2016, Jesse and Aryn launched the “Ebroji” app together, a platform for curated GIFs .
They have yet to comment publicly on their reported divorce. E! News has reached out to Williams’ rep for comment.
“We walked along with them for almost three blocks in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. They were trying to be incognito,” the eyewitness said.
“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!”
We hope it’s all lies, as Jessie and Aryn have two small children to think about.
Wishing all involved the best of luck
