Jesse Williams Wants To Divorce Wife So He Can Be On The Prowl
According to Page Six, Williams “wants to be the hot single guy in Hollywood,” friends say.
Drake-Lee worked in real estate and the art world and supported Williams when his acting career was in struggle mode. The couple have been together for 13 years, they married back in 2012 and have two young kids together.
Page Six sources say Drake-Lee was his rock all these years until he finally won a role on “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2009.
“She poured money into this relationship and sacrificed her life for him, and now he wants to go out and be the hot single Hollywood guy. Jesse wants to . . . do whatever he thinks will make him a bigger star. He’s drinking his own Kool-Aid and it’s ‘the Jesse show.’ He’s dead f - - king wrong. He did not respect those vows. He wants to be single,” the source said.
Williams has been linked to Derek Jeter’s ex Minka Kelly, who he was photographed with in France, and friends tell us he is “currently seeing Minka.” But another source close to Williams insists, “They’re working on a video game with quite a few other people.”
The source added that when Williams and Drake-Lee moved to LA for “Grey’s Anatomy,” he became the breadwinner. “It all evened out. He was taking care of her.”
Drake-Lee was often dogged in the media for not looking like a Hollywood starlet when she was photographed with him. “When you hear people saying, ‘Why aren’t you with someone hotter or with this actress?’ I’m sure that placed a strain on their relationship,” the first source said, adding that Williams will try to portray the divorce as amicable. “It’s bulls - - t . . . They’re going to paint a picture like he’s been separated for a very long time, but the truth is that he left her.”
Yikes! So not only is Wiliams likely smashing Minka Kelly’s cakes to smithereens — he’s not even satisfied with that and wants to go be a dirty dog out here in these streets? Aw hell nah. Come on now Jesse.
