Melissa Benoist seeks divorce from Blake Jenner
“Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist is reportedly seeking a divorce from her husband and “The Edge of Seventeen” actor Blake Jenner, filing December 31.
According to the court documents, the 28-year-old actress filed for a divorce from her 24-year-old husband, citing irreconcilable differences. Aside from the petition to block spousal support for both parties, Benoist also requested to drop Jenner off her legal name and change it back to Melissa Benoist. The couple has no children together.
Benoist and Jenner previously worked together as a love team on the musical TV series Glee last 2012 and on CW’s Supergirl where Jenner guest starred with Benoist. They dated for a year before getting engaged last July 2013 and tied the knot in the spring of 2015. They were last seen together at the Toronto International Film Festival last September 2016.
