‘Supergirl’ Star Melissa Benoist Files For Divorce From Blake Jenner


Supergirl star Melissa Benoist is ending her marriage to her former Glee co-star Blake Jenner.

The 28-year-old actress filed divorce papers on Friday, just two days before the Christmas holiday, citing “irreconcilable differences,” ET confirms.

Benoist and Jenner, 24, wed in March 2015 after getting engaged in the summer of 2013 following a year of dating.

They met in 2012 when they were co-stars on Fox’s musical comedy Glee, where Benoist and Jenner played high schoolers Marley and Ryder, respectively. Jenner also appeared in a two-episode guest stint on The CW’s Supergirl, the DC superhero drama Benoist currently leads.

According to TMZ, Benoist is seeking to change her legal name back to Melissa Benoist, dropping Jenner as a result. She is also asking the court to block spousal support for either party.

The day after Christmas, Jenner posted a video of him playing with his nephew, showing no indication of the impending divorce.
