She captioned the post, "shining, shiny, shinin, shining yeah." She showed off a defiant pout in the selfie hours after her ex posted a meme of James Harden scoffing at a question — which seemed to be in response to his ex's recent moves in court.

The snap is the first time Aryn has been seen since she filed explosive documents as part of their divorce last month.

In the docs, Aryn said Jesse kept canceling time with their 2 kids or canceling and then un-canceling. In docs, she claims Jesse started acting differently after he left the hit ABC drama last year.

She said he fired their longtime nanny without consulting her and accused him of threatening her when they argued over custody.

She accuses him of resorting to "erratic behavior to try to force me to acquiesce to his demands; he calls me names, uses threatening language and intimidation tactics such as threatening to send the police to my home, causing me to fear for my and our children’s safety."

Jesse explained his work schedule is always changing and that's normal in the entertainment industry. In the emails, he is seen pleading with his ex to work with him and not constantly be fighting in court.

His pleas fell on deaf ears as she then rushed to court demanding primary custody. Jesse has yet to officially respond in court.
