Jesse Williams Continues to Petition Court to Have Child Support Payments Reduced

“Money” actor Jesse Williams refused to give up on reducing his child support payments and recently motioned for an appeal in court.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star filed a notice of appeal on August 20 according to the Blast. The motion was set in place after a judge denied Williams’ request for a new trial over for “extraordinarily high” payments to his ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee.

Court officials shot Williams down last week after his plea for lower child support payments. In June, the judge ordered the star to pay $50,000 in spousal support plus another $50k for his children which totaled $100k a month. The actor’s reported salary is $521,000 per month.

Williams went back to court in July to dispute his expensive monthly payments and said there was “an error in law.” He also claimed Drake-Lee “exaggerates many of our expenses and the children’s needs, while also lumping her personal expenses for the children” according to legal documents.

The 37-year-old filed for divorce against his ex-wife in April 2017 after five years of marriage. The pair share two children their daughter Sadie and son Maceo.
