Aryn Drake-Lee refuses to let their six-year-old daughter, Sadie, spend time with her father, actor Jesse Williams. Aryn and Jesse have been involved in a divorce battle since their split in 2017. The mother said that it was her turn to have Sadie since she missed out on some mother-daughter time due to a recent yoga work trip.
However, the trip to India was not business-related, and Williams got his daughter for the full weekend. Williams argued that the tour included “Tea Break,” “Dalai Lama,” and “Finding Your Purpose” as the classes she attended. He also said that he had already planned a full weekend of activities with their daughter, too, which included a Disney trip and a Nutcracker play.
Jesse filed for divorce from Aryn in April 2017 after five years of marriage. Earlier this year, Aryn spoke out about their divorce in an interview with PEOPLE, calling it a “blessing in disguise. “Because it was a real slap in the face to see who was around us and why, and at that point, it became apparent. And it cleared a pathway for me to make a shift and get back onto a path that was more in alignment with how I wanted to live my life.”
Jesse was a high school teacher in Philadelphia when he met Aryn. The couple dated for over five years before tying the knot in 2012.
