‘Friday Night Lights’ Star Minka Kelly Linked To Jesse Williams Following His Divorce

Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams is filing for divorce from wife Aryn Drake-Lee.

The couple have been married for almost five years and also have two kids together – three-year old daughter, Sadie, and 18-month old son, Maceo.

In the midst of their split, rumours are quickly spreading that Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly has something to do with it.

An unknown source has revealed to blind-item site Blind Gossip that the 35-year old actor is dating Kelly.

But fans are furious as it seems like he began seeing Minka before splitting from his now ex-wife.

Jesse and Minka were allegedly spotted on a romantic date in Paris over a month ago.

The source claims,

We walked along with them for almost three blocks in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. They were trying to be incognito.

He was wearing a hoodie and she was wearing a cap… He looked a little tense and was trying hard not to be noticed. She looked very happy and content.

They were holding hands and being very romantic. They were definitely acting like a couple!

Twitter has been quick to spot the rumours, and Williams’ fans are praying that the news isn’t true.

One fan wrote,

While others are simply refusing to listen to the scandalous rumours,


Yet if there is truth to the gossip, Williams could be faced with a lot of backlash.


At last year’s BET awards, Jesse’s acceptance speech got everyone talking.

His passion for the Black Lives Matter movement shone through as well as his support for black women, and of course his wife.


Another tweeter predicts a huge rage against the actor if the rumours turns out to be true,

While the speculation has not been confirmed, the internet certainly think there is more to Williams and Drake-Lee’s split than initially thought.

The former husband and wife first met when Williams was still working as a schoolteacher over ten years ago.

In a previous interview with USA Today in 2012, the on-screen star was full of praise for his wife, saying,

She’s been with me through all different facets of my career. [She sticks] with me through thick and thick and thick and thin. We know each other in and out.

Minka Kelly or Jesse Williams are yet to comment on the rumours.
