Jesse Williams is reportedly dipping his toe back into the dating pool following his divorce drama and subsequent split from Minka Kelly.

The 36-year-old Grey's Anatomy star has sparked a romance with SportsNet New York anchor Taylor Rooks, according to multiple   reports.

The pair were reportedly seen together as they attended Kevin Hart's stand-up comedy performance at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the Memorial Day weekend.

Along with her role on SportsNet New York, the 26-year-old sports anchor is also the host of her own podcast, TimeOut with Taylor Rooks.

Williams was previously dating Kelly for months amid his contentious divorce from ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee, but the pair called things off late last year.

Williams and Kelly denied allegations of infidelity that were sparked when they began dating just a few months after his split from Drake-Lee, with whom he shares two children -- 3-year-old daughter Sadie and 2-year-old son Maceo.

Williams -- who married Drake-Lee in September 2012 after dating for over five years -- filed for divorce in April 2017. The divorce proceedings quickly became contentious and led to a year-long battle over custody rights, which were eventually finalized in March.

ET has reached out to Williams' reps for comment on his reported new romance.
