Jesse Williams doesn’t have to pay a huge amount in child support now that he doesn’t bring in much money Grey’s Anatomy.

Williams, who spent 12 seasons as Dr. Jackson Avery starred in the famous medical drama, got a big salary hit after leaving the show, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. The star originally paid his ex-wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, $40,000 a month in support, but now those payments will be “temporarily changed to $6,413,” according to the publication.

In March, the actor claimed his income had declined after making the switch to Broadway, arguing that his weekly income had fallen to $1,668 while performing in the Broadway play “Take Me Out.”

if MADAMENOIR previously reported, in March, Williams and his ex-wife reached a settlement in their controversial custody battle. The former couple has joint custody of their 8-year-old daughter Sadie and 6-year-old son Maceo. The judge rejected Drake-Lee’s original request to have the actor pay the full amount for the children’s nanny after she failed to provide financial documents. The courts also rejected her request for less time with the children. Once Williams finishes his show in the summer, the two will head back to court to handle other legal matters related to the case.

Williams and Drake-Lee jumped the broom in September 2012 and were together for more than five years. The actor filed for divorce in April 2017, leading to their ongoing tumultuous custody case. Initially, Williams was ordered to pay an outstanding $50,000 a month in child support, in addition to $50,695 a month in spousal support in 2018, according to PEOPLE. He later appealed to challenge the order.
