Jesse Williams & Estranged Wife Aryn Drake-Lee Finally Reached A Custody Agreement

Jesse Williams and estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee finally made some headway in their messy custody battle. The former couple are banned from talking smack about each other and bringing their 'romantic partners' around the kids for six months in their joint custody agreement.

A judge signed the order on Aug. 30, after the pair attended a hearing on child custody, child visitation and co-parenting matters regarding their children.

Williams and Drake-Lee have agreed on sharing joint-custody of their two children. The pair share son Maceo, nearly two, and daughter Sadie, three. 

The custody agreement states that "neither parent can make derogatory remarks about the other in front of the children."

The agreement also forbids the kids from meeting either parents' love interests "until the relationship has endured at least 6 months." 

It is believed that the custody clause may have been put in place due to Jesse's rumored relationship with actress Minka Kelly. Although Drake-Lee suggested there were other women parading around their children.


The documents also states that "neither parent shall use the children as messengers between them for any purpose" or "use the children’s child care provider(s) as a messenger(s) between them for any purpose. Neither parent shall interrogate a child care provider."

Williams' estranged wife had filed for sole legal custody in June, citing the actor's violent temper, his parading other women around their children, and his hectic work schedule preventing him from seeing the children.

Jesse fired back by claiming Aryn was "severely restricting" his time with the kids over the past five months and routinely leaving him out of decisions regarding them.

The custody agreement states that "each parent shall be designated as a person that the children’s school or activity will contact in the event of an emergency" and "the parents shall have equal access to the children’s school, medical, dental and activities records."

Williams had also claimed Drake-Lee has stopped him from spending time with the kids and rarely answers the phone when he tries to FaceTime the kids.

#ArynDrakeLee, Jesse’s partner of 13 years/ wife of 5 years, filed for sole custody on Friday, August 11th. Aryn cites his work schedule, temper 😡 and dating habits as reasons why she does not want him to be around the kids. 🙅🏽 Weigh in! #DishNation #celebritybreakups #celebritydivorce

The court order should remedy that situation because it stipulates the non-custodial parent can contact the children while they are in the other parent’s custody once per day. It states the "custodial parent will make best efforts to ensure that the children participate in the call … and return any missed calls."
