Williams and the Friday Night Lights alum shot a video game in Paris together that same month, but have kept their relationship relatively quiet. That is, until they stepped out to catch a movie in West Hollywood on Monday, July 10.

During the date night, Williams wore a black hoodie in baseball cap. Kelly, also wearing a hat, kept cozy in a jacket and a gray top.

As previously reported, Williams is currently going through a public custody battle with his estranged wife, Aryn Drake-Lee. The exes, who are parents of daughter, Sadie, 3, and son Maceo, 21 months, filed for divorce in April after nearly five years of marriage.

Without mentioning Drake-Lee’s name, Williams addressed his divorce and cheating rumors in Jay-Z’s “Footnotes” video for his track “4:44,” which was released on Monday. “I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years, 13 years,” he says in the video, “and all of a sudden motherf–kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship — like the 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.”

Before Williams, Kelly dated Derek Jeter, Wilmer Valderrama and Josh Radnor. Us exclusively confirmed in March that she and the How I Met Your Mother actor called it quits after a brief romance.
