Following Jesse Williams getting joint physical custody of his children with Aryn Drake-Lee, TMZ reported she wants the “Grey’s Anatomy” actor to pay up in child support.

Drake-Lee says the more than $50,000 Williams currently pays monthly is too little to fund 4-year-old Sadie’s and 2-year-old Maceo’s activities. According to Williams’ spouse of 5 years, she pays more than $73,000 per month for the toddlers, including dance and swimming lessons, tuition, clothes and travel to visit family outside of Los Angeles.

As such, Drake-Lee wants her soon-to-be-ex to reimburse her for the kids’ expenses out of his $250,000 per episode “Grey’s” income. And she’s not content with the $60,000 in attorney’s fees Williams is also paying for. Drake-Lee wants the activist to fork up $200,000 to cover her legal fees, too.

Williams filed for divorce in August 2017, citing “irreconcilable differences.” They tried to keep the split hush-hush but details have steadily leaked about their and custody battle. One particularly nasty detail includes accusations of Drake-Lee limiting Williams’ time with the children.

In response to the estranged wife’s newest demands, many on Twitter have been slamming her.
