Grey's Anatomy Star Jesse Williams Appeals $50K per Month Child Support Ruling
Jesse Williams‘ messy divorce proceedings continue.
According to court papers obtained by The Blast, the Grey’s Anatomy actor, 37, filed a notice of appeal on Monday in an attempt to change the child support he pays to ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee. He filed the appeal in the Superior Court of California of the County of Los Angeles.
Williams shares daughter Sadie and son Maceo with Drake-Lee. In June, Williams was ordered to pay more than $50,000 per month in child support in addition to the $50,695 per month in spousal support that he has paid Drake-Lee since January 2018.
A forensic accountant found that Williams earns more than $521,000 per month. In April 2017, Drake-Lee petitioned the court for $27,000 more in child support and an additional $200,000 for her attorney’s fees.
