Like the late, great blues singer Johnny Taylor said back in the day, “It’s cheaper to keep her.”
Actor Jesse Williams found that out again when he was ordered to pay ore spousal support to estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee.
Yes, we said “again” because he was already paying her $33,000 per month. Now it’s been increased to $50k.
Here’s what TMZ is reporting …
Aryn Drake-Lee had gone to court to ask for the increase based on his ability to pay. She and Jesse hammered out the agreement, and the judge approved it earlier this month.
The divorce has been incredibly acrimonious … particularly after he was linked to Minka Kelly.
The exact amount of the new spousal support obligation is $50,695 per month.
Under the new order, Aryn is responsible for paying all mortgage obligations and various other expenses related to the family home.
She’s also getting half of Jesse’s residuals from Sept., 2012, to April, 2017 for “Grey’s Anatomy” and other projects.
And Jesse is required to give her a $50k advance for lawyer’s fees related to their divorce.
OK, once again, and say it with us: “It’s cheaper to keep her!”
