MELISSA BENOIST FILES FOR DIVORCE FROM BLAKE JENNER
The Supergirl actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. The couple married on June 19, 2013. They met on the set of Glee where Jenner played Ryder Lynn and Benoist was Marley Rose. Later, Blake joined Benoist on her show Supergirl, where he played Adam Foster in two episodes.
In 2012 on Glee, Benoist gushed about working with her guy. “We clicked on his first day, during a “Born to Hand Jive” dance rehearsal,” she said of her husband, who earned his spot on the musical show through The Glee Project. “I love talking about it, Blake is amazing.”
“I thought she was the bomb the second I saw her, so it was just super cool to be working together,” Jenner told People in 2014. “Thankfully, we’ve had some scenes together. Because if we didn’t, I don’t think we would have had the time to get to know each other.”
The couple has no children together. Benoist, in her filing, blocked the court from requiring any spousal support from either party, and also decided to change her name back to her maiden name. The split should be quick and easy.
