Maybe it was the sentimental state I was in but I paused after this quote and felt a pang of guilt.I thought about how we might not know what really happened to cause the end of Jesse William’s relationship.It inspired me to write about the implications that come with a black man of Jesse’s stature, and with his resume of activism, allegedly leaving his black wife for a white woman.Here’s what Jesse said in Jay’s powerful "I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years and all of a sudden mother f--kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship—like thee most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart—that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute." I revealed in my previous piece that this video made me emotional.
Those rumours inspired a lot of conversation and speculation about the end of his marriage.The pair wed in September 2012 after more than five years of dating.Williams and Drake-Lee are currently in court regarding the custody agreement over their two young children: daughter Sadie, 3, and son Maceo, who was born in 2015.We'll have to wait for Season 14 to premiere this fall to see where that goes, but ... The confirmation comes following rumours after Minka, 37, posted an Instagram snap of her and Jesse, 35, in Paris in January but the couple were not dating at the time. confirms that the star couple are dating and are seemingly happy together.I’m not referring to Williams as “this motherf—ker” solely because he’s dating a white woman.
