Jesse Williams opened up about his divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee—and addressed cheating rumors—in Jay-Z’s “Footnotes for 4:44" video.


Williams and Drake-Lee married in 2012, and he filed for divorce this past April amid rumors that he was cheating with actress Minka Kelly.

“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years— 13 years,” Williams said in the video. “All of a sudden, motherfuckers are writing think pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship.


“Like, the most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart—that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.”

Interestingly enough, Williams was spotted out on a “date” with Kelly on Monday.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
