Men On The Internet Are Big Mad About Jesse Williams’ Increased Child And Spousal Support Amounts — See Reactions

We hope Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake-Lee tuck away some cash for therapy sessions for their children, because they will probably need them

Yup. Their back-and-forth bickering is on a whole new level.

What now? A judge has increased the amount of money Jesse will pay his estranged wife, who had requested that the number be upped. 

Jesse previously claimed that Aryn was playing fast and loose with the book-keeping, saying she “exaggerates many of our expenses and the children's needs, while also lumping her personal expenses as expenses for the children."

"We agreed that our children should live a simple life without wasting money on extravaganza," Jesse then noted, pointing to Ikea furniture, home-cooked meals and low-cost family gatherings as proof of their lifestyle.


He also stated that he would pay for his children’s entire school tuition; he also believes that her attempts were fueled by a personal vendetta.

"A constant theme throughout our divorce proceedings has been Aryn marginalizing me as a father and frustrating my custodial timeshare with the children," Jesse said. "Aryn continues to engage in this type of behavior and punish me for having a career and working hard to provide for our family." 

Well, TMZ says that that he has now been ordered to pay $100k per month in both support for his two children, 4-year-old Sadie and 2-year-old Maceo, as well spousal support for Aryn, which was bumped from $33k to $50k.

Oof.

Court documents reveal that the actor brings in $521,000 a month, so the new settlement represents 1/5 of his income.


Evidently, this temporary until the couple reaches a final settlement or the court imposes a final order.


The Internet had some comments to throw in. Seems that many men are more upset about this than Jesse is?


Jesse and Aryn announced their split after more than a decade together, citing irreconcilable differences. A year or so later, the court finally awarded joint physical custody of their two kids to both parents, though they were also given specific guidelines for communication, as well as the custodial schedule.

Both reportedly had to be told 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."


So, do you think people’s outrage to 100K a month for child support is justified?
