Despite their denials, Jesse Williams and Minka Kelly dated for over a year after the “Grey’s Anatomy” star filed for divorce. Sources revealed to Us Weekly that the photogenic actors were “legit,” after they were spotted out on movie dates. However, their relationship ended just as fast as when they got together, with People reporting they broke up in January 2018.
Though Williams and Kelly broke up, he had to deal with a contentious divorce brought on by his ex Aryn Drake-Lee. Lee accused Williams of being a reckless and irresponsible parent by posting pictures of their kids on social media, according to TMZ. Williams denied the claims, countering that Lee was the one keeping their children away from him. The exes eventually agreed to joint custody in their divorce in October 2020 and Williams was ordered to pay $40,000 in child support per month, according to People. However, it seems as though both parties are still at odds with each other over custody arrangements. TMZ reported that Williams and Lee were ordered by a judge to participate in an online program for “high conflict parents,” in April 2021.
Meanwhile, Kelly has been in a low profile relationship with comedian Trevor Noah — and it’s remarkably less dramatic than when she was with Williams.
