Jesse Williams and wife reach custody agreement - report

The actor filed for divorce from Aryn Drake-Lee earlier this year (17).

Jesse Williams and his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee have reportedly reached an agreement in their custody battle.

The Grey's Anatomy star has been locked in a bitter custody battle with Aryn ever since he filed papers to end their nearly five-year marriage in April (17), but the estranged couple has now agreed to joint custody, according to TMZ.

Sources tell the outlet the former couple will make decisions about the health and welfare of its two children together. Jesse and his ex have also reportedly agreed not to introduce any new romantic partners to the children until they have been dating for at least six months. They have also agreed not to make disparaging remarks about one another in front of the kids.

The estranged couple has also barred each other from using the children to relay messages to one another.

Last month (Aug17), Aryn launched a bid for sole custody of the pair's daughter Sadie and son Maceo after complaining about Jesse's "wild" behaviour. The mother-of-two claimed the actor had flown into a violent rage and threatened his neighbour's life in an argument over a traffic incident, in front of the children.

She also alleged that Jesse, who has been romantically linked to actress Minka Kelly, had exposed their children to a "revolving door" of women.

Jesse blasted Aryn's allegations as one-sided, claiming she is the one with the temper. He also alleged the sole custody grab was an attempt to punish him for working to provide for their family.
