Jesse Williams and Minka Kelly Are Dating
According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, Williams filed for divorce on April 11. The actor first met real estate broker Drake-Lee while working as a schoolteacher in New York. The pair got married in September 2012 after dating for more than five years. Williams and Drake-Lee are currently in court regarding a custody settlement over their two young children: daughter Sadie, 3, and son Maceo, who was born in 2015. Williams, 35, addressed the split — and rumors of infidelity — in J.A.’s short film Footnotes for 4:44, a visual accompaniment to the rapper’s new album, which was released Monday, according to E! news.
Without mentioning his former name, the father of two subtly mentioned the rumors and revealed how difficult the split was. “I was in a relationship of 13 years, 13 years, not 5 years, 7 years – 13 years,” he said. “Suddenly parents are writing thoughtfully that I had somehow thrown out a 13-year relationship.” “Like, I’ve had the most painful experience in my life with a man I’ve loved with all my heart — that I threw one person and my family in the trash because the girl I work with is cute.” is,” she continued. Recently, 37-year-old Kelly sparked romance rumors after she was spotted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with Wilmer Valderrama, whom she was briefly engaged to in 2012. However, Kelly never actually dated the two in the past. “He’s not my ex,” she told Power106 last September. “We’re good friends, and we always have been. It’s funny, this whole ‘Back with my ex’ thing. We’re not outcasts!” “It sucks when stories aren’t true, you know?” He added. “Look, if it’s true and it’s out there, it’s true and it’s out. When it’s not true and this is when it’s really depressing. You just have to find the comedy in it.” Ultimately, the actress admitted that media scrutiny of her personal life is par for the course. “I think it comes with the territory,” she said. “It’s a small price to pay for the extraordinary life I live.”
