Grey's Anatomy actor Jesse Williams is fighting for joint custody of his two kids, 3-year-old daughter Sadie and 2-year-old son Maceo. His ex-wife and the mother of his children, Aryn Drake-Lee, was asking the court for sole legal and physical custody of the kids after their recent divorce was filed.


ET obtained court documents recently filed by Drake-Lee in which she apparently claimed that Williams has "missed numerous events in their children's lives, including their daughter's preschool graduation, because of his work" and has "shared his time with the children with intimate partner(s)." She also maintains that he has difficulty controlling his temper.

Williams has finally commented on the situation by having a representative state to ET, "Jesse has been working tirelessly to maintain his bond with their children and it is important to note that the dramatizations made in Aryn's declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind."

The couple, who married back in 2012, ended up filing for divorce this past April for "irreconcilable differences."
