The 35-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actor and his now ex-wife called it quits after nearly five years of marriage.
Jesse has reportedly been fighting for joint physical and legal custody of their children – Sadie, 4, and Maceo, 21 months.
“I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years,” Jesse said in Jay Z‘s “Footnotes for 4:44” video (via E! News).
“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,” he added.
