Jesse Williams has been silent about his pending divorce and custody drama, even though the ordeal is playing out on every blog.
But leave it to Jay-Z to get someone to open up about their innermost feelings. In the visual Tidal piece, Footnotes for 4:44, Williams subtly addressed cheating rumors, saying, “I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years, 13 years and all of a sudden mother f***ers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship — like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life, like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart — that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.”
You may recall that Jesse and Aryn Drake-Lee are in the middle of a nasty custody battle over their two children, Maceo and Sadie. The actor filed for divorce from his longtime partner back in April. Jesse told a judge that Aryn refused his request for more time with the children. He asked for joint physical custody.
