*Actor Jesse Williams is currently embattled in legal drama with his ex-wife over child support but that’s not putting a damper in his romantic life.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star is reportedly boo’d up with actress Taylour Paige. The sexy duo made their debut at Beyonce and Jay Z’s Oscars party on Sunday night. They were photographed looking quite cozy while walking hand-in-hand.

Paige, 28, is best known for her role on VH1’s series “Hit The Floor.”

Williams and his ex-wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, divorced in September 2017, and according to recent reports, she’s currently gunning for an increase in child support.

According to The Blast, Drake-Lee is seeking $637,605 in retroactive child support for their two kids, as well of $251,602 in retroactive spousal support. As part of their divorce settlement,  Williams was previously ordered to pay $50,000 a month (until at least 2020) for the kids in addition to another $50,700 a month in spousal support.

Aryn also accuses her ex of frequently cancelling scheduled pick ups with the kids, only to later demand make-up time, reports the outlet. She now wants the judge to order Jesse to hand over a copy of his filming schedule.

According to The Blast, the breakdown of her support request is as follows (via The Black Loop):

In regard to child support, she wants the $50,000 a month [per child] to stay the same, saying Jesse Williams is still making bank on the hit show. She will be seeking $737,605 in retroactive child support, minus $100k already paid, for a total of $637,605. She does suggest cutting her $50k monthly spousal support down to $29,918, which would be paid until at least 2020. Drake-Lee also wants retroactive spousal support to the tune of $251,602.

She also wants “to keep the Los Angeles mansion they shared during their marriage along with a Brooklyn home she bought and Oakland home she has interest in. Drake-Lee wants Williams’ residuals to continue to be split and wants her cut of the $796,800 profit participation check Disney paid him in 2017.”

In addition, Drake-Lee requests both parties be banned from introducing their young children to any new partners until at least six months into the relationship, per Yahoo.com
