There’s no doubt about it, we love Jesse Williams. I mean, we’ve always loved him on Grey’s Anatomy — but ever since his political activism has come to the forefront, we’ve been obsessed.
In his speech accepting the BET Humanitarian Award last summer, Williams paid tribute to black women, which led us to wonder about the women in his life — including Aryn Drake-Lee, who he married in 2012. Naturally we did a little lite internet stalking and learned that Drake-Lee (who is the mother to Williams’ children, Sadie and Maceo) is certainly a force to be reckoned with — and we’re just a little bit devastated that the couple is reportedly divorcing because, gasp, Williams allegedly wants to hit the town as a single guy.
Here are 10 reasons Drake-Lee is every bit as badass as Williams is.
