We were all pretty surprised when Actor and activist, Jesse Williams 35, filed for divorce earlier this year from his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. We were especially surprised since the couple has been together for 13 years and share two small children. Around the time we heard about their impending divorce, we also spotted Jesse hanging out with Actress, Minka Kelly, but you can read more about that HERE
Jesse has stayed mum about the rumors of another women, and still hasn’t said much about the divorce at all. That is until now. In an 11 minute short video released on Tidal, Jay Z “Footnotes for 4:44“, Jesse joined a group of celebrity men talking about love, life, and relationship. In the video Jesse had this to say:
“Thirteen real years. Not five years, not seven years — 13 years. And all of a sudden motherf–kers are writing like think pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship — like, the most painful experience I’ve had in my life with a person I loved with all of my heart — that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I worked with was cute.”
This right is here is not a think piece but I will say my piece. I’m glad he was able to share his thoughts and how he felt. However, I just find it highly suspicious because he was just recently spotted with his lady friend Minka in West Hollywood out at the movies. No its not easy to end a 13 year relationship but its definitely easier when you have a side piece waiting on you. But who knows? Maybe is was Aryn who wanted to call it quits, so it makes sense he would seek some comfort elsewhere.
Either way, it seems as though Jay Z’s latest album is the gift that keeps on giving. It gave us answers to questions we’ve been asking since the release of Beyonce Lemonade, you can read more about that HERE. Then we got to hear Blu Ivy spit some bars on a track, listen HERE. Now we hear Jesse speak. I wonder what next? But real talk….what do you think about Jesse’s statement? Lets hear it!
