Jesse William’s estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee is finally opening up about their divorce. But is her timing purely a coincidence?
Just a week after Williams went public with new girlfriend actress Taylour Paige, Drake-Lee breaks her silence about their painful split and how she’s coping.
Williams filed for divorce two years ago after nearly 5 years of marriage. The two are currently caught in a messy divorce and custody battle over their two young children, Sadie, 5 and Maceo, 3.
“I think a lot of women are still in the place where we’re pretending like we can do everything,” Drake-Lee said. “And it’s not realistic, and it’s not holistic, and it’s not sustainable. I want to empower women to find their voice, to take the mask off so that they can really find the connection and the community that they’re seeking.”
The mother of two also revealed she lost a lot of friends after the split but says it was a “blessing in disguise.”
“It was a blessing in disguise because it was a real slap in the face to see who was around us and why, and at that point it became very clear. And it cleared a pathway for me to make a shift and get back onto a path that was more in alignment with how I wanted to live my life.”
Meanwhile the Grey’s Anatomy star looks to be happy and in love. After months of rumors that he and the Hit The Floor star were dating they made their red carpet debut.
On May 5, Williams and Paige attended the Ozwald Boateng Harlem runway show at the Apollo Theater in New York City. The two were all smiles and holding hands as they stopped and posed for photos together. Both have also posted photos of each on their Instagram accounts (so you know it’s real).

The pair were first spotted in January at the Sundance Film Festival, but it appears that they have been dating since last year. Paige celebrated her 28th birthday back in October with the 37- year-old actor and the duo also spent New Years Eve together in Ghana.
Williams previously dated SportsNet New York anchor Taylor Rooks and also dated Minka Kelly for several months before calling it off in January 2018.
