Multiple reports have indicated that Jesse Williams is romantically involved with SportsNet New York anchor Taylor Rooks. The rumours began to circulate online after the pair were supposedly seen canoodling whilst attending a Kevin Hart stand-up show in Atlantic City, NJ.

Williams filed for divorce from his ex-wife Aryn Drake Lee back in April 2017 after having been married for five years and welcoming two children into the world. Shortly afterwards, the Grey's Anatomy star began dating Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly, before parting ways with one another earlier this year. 

Williams and Rooks seem to be keeping their burgeoning relationship on the down-low, evading the paparazzi's leering gaze by foregoing any overtly public displays. 

Monday night's NBA Awards saw the actor and the sports caster arrive separately on the red carpet during the event, as they choose to pass on a photo opportunity with one another and confirm the widespread tabloid fodder.
