The unfortunate demise of Jesse Williams‘ marriage has taken another turn for the dramatic now that he has asked a judge to grant him formal custody of his children.
He claims his soon-to-be ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee only allows him to see the kids for three hours each day and has rejected his request to have them stay at the property he rented three miles away from her home for sleepovers.
The couple were divorced for four and a half years before Williams filed for divorce in April and, after separating amicably, now find themselves of opposite ends of a legal war Williams hopes to win.
Aryn had this to say about Williams’ request for joint-custody and the press it had garnered via her legal reps weeks ago:
Protecting the privacy and well-being of their children is of paramount importance to Aryn Drake-Lee Williams,’ Hersh told Us Weekly.
It is unfortunate that Mr. Williams has chosen to draw public attention to this difficult time and transition for their family. Aryn is solely interested in the best interests of their children, supporting a healthy relationship with both parents, and protecting the children’s privacy.
