The "Grey's Anatomy" star has not been pleased with the way his divorce has been portrayed as he references the emotional toll of it all.
Jesse Williams’s split with wife Aryn Drake-Lee is off to a contentious start. The Grey’s Anatomy star is gearing up for a legal war over custody of their two children, Sadie, 3, and Maceo, 2. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Williams is seeking to get more time with their kids, as Aryn allegedly won’t let him see them for more than three hours a day.
Shailene Woodley, Mark Ruffalo, and Solange Knowles are among those praising the latest decision. On Sunday, the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers announced that it was not approving an easement needed to permit the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, and it didn’t take long for social media to sparkle with joyful postings in honor of the news. Shailene Woodley was one of the earliest and most devout celebrity critics of the pipeline (which protesters argued would have compromised both sacred sites and drinking water by crossing Lake Oahe — the main water source for the Standing Rock Sioux reservation), so it was no surprise that she was elated to hear the news.
Queen Latifah stopped Friday’s Today to promote her new movie, Ice Age: Collision Course, but the conversation quickly turned to the recent shootings involving police officers in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Dallas.
Actor Jesse Williams was honored with the 2016 BET Humanitarian Award at the BET Awards Sunday and delivered a powerful speech on racism in the U.S.
The 2016 BET Awards were Sunday and because this is an election year it was no surprise that things got political, with several stars making poignant statements.
Sunday night’s BET Awards ceremony was heavier on sociopolitical commentary than most lightweight, gimmicky music awards shows – from Beyoncé’s suprirse opening number “Freedom,” to co-host Tracee Ellis Ross’s Hillary Clinton endorsement, to Usher’s “Don’t Trump America” shirt, to multiple presenters passionately advocating for gun control and voter registration. When the Grey’s Anatomy actor, tireless activist, and star/executive producer of the documentary Stay Woke: The Black Lives Matter Movement accepted his 2016 BET Humanitarian Award, his emotional speech practically broke the Internet – or at least made the Internet really stop, listen, and think.
