According to reports, the actor and activist has to shell out $50,629 a month in child support for their three-year-old son Maceo and four-year-old daughter Sadie, according to court documents. Williams must also pay his estranged wife’s legal fees totaling $270,000.
Williams fought against the support payments and in court documents, he stated that his ex “exaggerates many of our expenses and the children’s needs, while also lumping her personal expenses as expenses for the children.”

Williams stated, “We agreed that our children should live a simple life without wasting money on extravaganza.”
But according to TMZ, a judge didn’t agree and increased the amount of spousal support. He’s now been ordered to pay $100k per month in both support for his two children and spousal support for Aryn Drake-Lee.
His spousal support was increased to $50k from $33k.
So $50k for the children and $50k for Drake-Lee.
According to court documents, Williams brings in $521,000 a month, so the new settlement represents 1/5 of his income.
When the bitter and female-hating males of Twitter got a hold of this news, their reactions were strong, with several expressing outrage.

That man Jesse Williams got on that mic and said “Black Women! WE don’t treat you right. WE need to do better,” then HE betrayed HIS black woman and HE took an L. Now HE is getting gutted like a fish by the courts.
You keep that same energy, Beloved! Thoughts and prayers! ✊?
