It was revealed earlier today that Grey’s Anatomy actor and political activist Jesse Williams has filed for divorce from Aryn Drakelee-Williams, his wife of five years.
Apparently, he filed and served Aryn this month, citing “irreconcilable differences.” A source close to the now-former couple says they were trying to keep their split “top secret” and have actually been separated for quite some time.
What makes things even sadder is that Jesse and Aryn have two children – a son and a daughter.
When the news broke, a ton of people were in tears over a now-split up family.
