Jesse Williams Ordered To Pay 50K A Month In Child Support

(SW) – The Daily Mail Reports, Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has been ordered to pay $50,629 a month in child support to his ex-wife following a bitter custody battle.

In a court ruling filed on Tuesday and obtained by DailyMail.com, the 36-year-old will also have to pay a total of $270,000 in legal fees to ex Aryn Drake-Lee.

Williams and Drake-Lee have two children together from their five-year marriage, including three-year-old son Maceo and four-year-old daughter Sadie.

5994c29273a50The actor will have to pay $50,629 a month in support from July 1 based on his ‘extraordinarily high’ monthly salary of $521,000, according to the court ruling. A judge had signed off on a request back in January for Williams to pay the monthly support sum but his ex-wife filed additional court documents requesting $73,369 per month instead.

Williams had tried to argue in court documents that he should not have to pay any child support directly to Drake-Lee.

Instead, he argued that he should support his children by only making payments to third parties.  ‘The reasonable needs of the children can be met by (Williams) directly paying school tuition, uninsured medical and certain other expenses totaling $7,465 a month,’ the actor argued in the papers.

The ruling on Tuesday, however, stated that the point of child support was to maintain the children’s needs given their right to ‘share in a lifestyle and condition consistent with their parents’ current station in life’.

It added that the reasonable needs of the couple’s children would not be met if Williams did not pay support directly to his ex-wife given they spend most of their custodial time with her.

Alabama Musician’s Facebook Post Loses Him Gigs

(Birmingham, AL) – A Birmingham musician’s shows have been canceled as a result of an offensive political Facebook post. This week, Phillip McCain posted that he would volunteer to shoot immigrants and didn’t care about their kids or their lives.

The posts have been pulled but the screenshots are still available online. McCain told AL.com that he’s been kicked out of his band and lost solo gigs as a result of him voicing his opinion.

“I’ll tell ya what I’ll volunteer to shoot their a**es when they approach the border. Problem solved. No more illegal f***ks coming in here. Period,” the original Facebook post stated.

“I don’t give a s**t about them, their kids, their s****y life or asylum. I care about American kids and American families. You’ve got to be a complete idiot to not get it, but then again we are talking about the libtard agenda. Liberalism is a mental disorder and I’m d**n sure glad that I’m not dumb s**t.”

Federal Lawsuit Filed Against Milwaukee PD, City On Behalf Of Sterling Brown

(Milwaukee, WI) — The Milwaukee Police Department and the city are now facing a federal civil rights lawsuit from Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown over his arrest in January.

The lawsuit claims excessive force and wrongful arrest and accuses police of violating his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Attorney Mark Thomsen said it also reflects that for too long in Milwaukee, “African-American men have been arrested, abused, and as in the case of Dontre Hamilton, killed as a result of bad police work.”

Police used a Taser on Brown during his arrest for parking in two handicapped spaces at a Walgreen’s store back in January. The lawsuit also alleges officers tried to reframe what happened in the incident report to make it sound like Brown resisted and obstructed them. Body-camera videos appeared to show that Brown never threatened police.
