Report: Jesse Williams Files for Divorce

The actor is allegedly splitting from his wife of five years.

After five years of marriage, Jesse Williams has reportedly ended his marriage to his wife, real estate broker Aryn Drakelee-Williams.

Though the news of their pending divorce is fresh, they have reportedly been separated for quite some time.

According to TMZ, the Grey's Anatomy star has filed for divorce from his wife, serving her with the papers earlier this month. The reason for the filing is stated as "irreconcilable differences."

"They're trying to keep their split top secret and away from the public," a source revealed about the split. "They've actually been separated for a while now."

Jesse and Aryn have been married for five years, but dated for five prior to walking down the aisle. They have two children together: a son named Maceo and a daughter named Sadie.

Back in 2009, the actor and activist spoke on the early stages of their relationship, revealing that they first met when he was a teacher.

"I was a teacher when I met her, so she's been with me through all the different facets of my career," he said. "She's stuck with me through thick and thick and thick and thin."
