Jesse Williams Says It’s His Estranged Wife Who Has A Temper
Another day, another update about the drama surrounding actor Jesse Williams and his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee.
When we last checked in, Drake-Lee released a statement, through her lawyers, saying that Jesse Williams had a temper and was seen screaming and arguing with his neighbor. She also alleged that he was working so much he was unable to spend time with his children. And most salaciously, that he was bringing too many of his girlfriends around their children.
Last week, Williams responded saying this was a matter for the court and that his wife had dramatized the nature of his dating life.
In the pattern of their back and forth, it would be Drake-Lee’s turn to respond. But apparently, Williams has more to say.
According to TMZ, filed more documents responding to Drake-Lee’s most recent allegations.
He said, she has the “incredible privilege of being a stay-at-home mom with a full-time nanny” because he’s been working everyday.
He also said Drake-Lee is trying to punish him by manipulating the time he gets to spend with their children. Since their split, he says Drake-Lee micro manages the time they get to spend together. He says his FaceTime calls often go unanswered and when she does answer, she leaves the tv on, which serves as a distraction for their children.
Furthermore, in response to Drake-Lee’s claims that Williams has a temper, he said that she’s the one with anger issues. He says Aryn is constantly screaming and shouting at him in front of their children. And he says that one time she repeatedly slammed the front door on his leg during a fight.
Drake-Lee’s lawyer, Jill Hersh released a statement in response.
“It is a shame that Mr. Williams chose to place the children and his family’s transition in the public domain. Aryn has been working tirelessly to maintain Mr. Williams’ bond with their children and it is important to remember that his one-sided allegations are made with a specific goal in mind. The judge is fully informed on both sides and will be making the final decision.”
