According to a new report, Jesse Williams’ divorce from wife Aryn Drake-Lee is because he now “wants to be the hot single guy in Hollywood.”

Sources told us Drake-Lee — who has worked in real estate and the art world — was his rock and the main breadwinner until Williams scored his big role on “Grey’s Anatomy” in 2009. They’ve been together for 13 years, married in 2012, and have two children.
Williams’ rise in Hollywood is to blame for the actor’s change of heart about his marriage, friends believe. “She poured money into this relationship and sacrificed her life for him, and now he wants to go out and be the hot single Hollywood guy. Jesse wants to .?.?. do whatever he thinks will make him a bigger star. He’s drinking his own Kool-Aid and it’s ‘the Jesse show.’ He’s dead f?-?-?king wrong. He did not respect those vows. He wants to be single,” the source said.
Williams has been linked to Derek Jeter’s ex Minka Kelly, who he was photographed with in France, and friends tell us he is “currently seeing Minka.” But another source close to Williams insists, “They’re working on a video game with quite a few other people.”
The source added that when Williams and Drake-Lee moved to LA for “Grey’s Anatomy,” he became the breadwinner. “It all evened out. He was taking care of her.”
Drake-Lee was often dogged in the media for not looking like a Hollywood starlet when she was photographed with him. “When you hear people saying, ‘Why aren’t you with someone hotter or with this actress?’ I’m sure that placed a strain on their relationship,” the first source said, adding that Williams will try to portray the divorce as amicable. “It’s bulls?-?-?t .?.?. They’re going to paint a picture like he’s been separated for a very long time, but the truth is that he left her.”
Williams was silent when recently asked about Minka. He instead turned his back to the cameras to reveal a jacket that read: “Don’t Believe the Hype.” A rep for Williams would not comment. Drake-Lee could not be reached.
From what we’ve seen, Jesse is a great guy. We’d hate for this to actually be true. Do you believe it?
