Jesse Williams has been separated from the wife he is now divorcing for more than a year, and he's been hanging out recently with Minka Kelly. Jesse filed to end his 5-year marriage to Aryn Drake-Lee ... A lot of Jesse's fans are upset he's moving on, but a source connected with the couple tells TMZ ... As for Minka, they're shooting a video game/movie in Paris and have been seen both on and off set for the last few months, but no one's saying if it's anything more than a friendship.

Jesse is really private with everything especially his relationships but feels open with Minka and she has been supportive and that's what he needs now.""I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years and all of a sudden mother f---kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship.

Like the most painful experience I've had in my life, like with a person I've loved with all of my heart -- that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute."Yikes.

Jesse Williams just gave a not so subtle response to rumors that he’s leaving his wife for an actress.

As previously reported fans were distraught to learn that Jesse’s divorcing his wife Aryn Drakelee Williams after 5 years of marriage and two kids.

Around the same time the divorce news came out, there were rumors that Williams was dating actress Minka Kelly, with whom he was working on a video game.

But it's only now, in July, that "sources" are confirming to People and E!

According to online reports, Jesse’s reason for divorce officially is “irreconcilable differences.” But there’s more.

According to the website Jesse is dating actress MINKA KELLY, and the two have been dating for at least the last couple of months. This Instagram post proves that the two were in Paris together.

The fact is, although Jesse leaving his black wife for a white woman might be surprising given his seeming embrace of black feminism, it still fits the trend of “when (a black man) get on, he leave (a black woman’s) ass for a white girl,” which is compounded by the larger trend of “attractive person benefits from the love and labor and resources of their less attractive partner only to discard them when they don’t need those things anymore.” that black women are viewed as being the least desirable across racial categories.

Even within the black community, what is defined as desirable mirrors white supremacists standards.
