Jesse Williams Has A New Gorgeous, Melanated Bae After Messy Divorce & Custody Battle — Photos

Guess that romance with once-mistress Minka Kelly fizzled out, eh?

Okay, we’ll play nice and say “ALLEGED. “

Anyway, it looks like actor Jesse Williams has a new lady in his life after the ugly custody battle between him and ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee (More on that later). 

The Grey’s Anatomy star is reportedly seeing popular sports anchor Taylor Rooks, Page Six says.

The pair were spotted at Kevin Hart’s new comedy show at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ, over the past weekend. The outlet claims the duo spent 24 hours in America’s Playground and may have enjoyed a visit at the 1,400-room Ocean Resort Casino a month before its opening, as its only two guests).

“They are eager to keep their romance under wraps. He’s been going through a difficult divorce [from Aryn Drake-Lee], but he’s found solace with Taylor.”

Taylor currently works as a SportsNet New York anchor and has her own YouTube show and podcast, “TimeOut With Taylor Rooks”. The 26-year old has already interviewed stars like Meek Mill, Dion Waiters and Dwyane Wade.

The two have not yet confirmed or denied the rumors.

Jesse has been busy, huh?

He filed for divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee—a real estate broker whom he had met when he worked as a schoolteacher in New York—on April 11th, 2017, according to People. A year later, the court finally awarded joint physical custody of their two children, Sadie and Maceo, to both parents. But they also handed them very specific guidelines with regards to communication, as well as the custodial schedule. 

Good call.

Aryn previously may have given him quite a lashing in court documents for exposing their children to a “revolving door” of women. He later apparently shot back by saying that she had "incredible privilege of being a stay-at-home mom with a full-time nanny" because he works daily, accusing her of being the aggressive one.

His estranged wife also once declared, "Jesse, a story teller by profession, appears to be trying to create some sort of fairytale parenting scenario that does not tell the complete story, the real story of parenting."

“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years — 13 years,” he said. “All of a sudden [expletive] are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship.”

“Like, the most painful experience I’ve had in my life 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.”

So, what do we all think of this possible-coupling between Jesse Williams and Taylor Rooks? Cute?
