Say it ain’t so!
Our favorite Grey’s Anatomy doctor Jesse Williams is allegedly dating Minka Kelly after splitting from his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee.
TMZ reports that Jesse — who plays Dr. Jackson Avery on the hit show — has been separated from Aryn for over a year. The actor recently filed for divorce after being linked to the Friday Night Lights star.
The new couple was even spotted on a romantic date. “He was wearing a hoodie and she was wearing a cap, but I recognized them immediately,” the source explained. “He looked a little tense and was trying hard not to be noticed. She looked very happy and content. They were holding hands and being very romantic. They were definitely acting like a couple!”
Not only does Jesse play a handsome doctor on the medical drama, but he has also made headlines for his activism. Due to his celebrity status, he has gained a substantial fan base. Many of his fans took to social media to express their feelings about the actor’s divorce.
“Yes, Jesse Williams is incredibly fine, but it’s really insensitive for y’all to be celebrating him getting a divorce from his wife,” one user tweeted in response to the news. Another added, “I’m definitely not happy about Jesse Williams and his wife getting divorced. Breakups make me sad.”
Jesse and Aryn tied the knot in 2012, but have been together for 13 years. The exes share two children.
