Oh no, Melissa Benoist has reportedly filed for divorce from Blake Jenner :(
According to American media outlet TMZ, the “Supergirl” actress cited “irreconcilable differences” for the split and is not asking for either party to give spousal support. She also requested to change her legal name back to Melissa Benoist.
The pair met on the set of Ryan Murphy’s popular musical TV show, “Glee”, back in 2012. In the series, 28-year-old Benoist played Marley Rose while 24-year-old Jenner portrayed Ryder Lynn. The actor even appeared on 2 episodes of “Supergirl” earlier this year.
“We clicked on his first day, during a ‘Born to Hand Jive’ dance rehearsal. I love talking about it. Blake is amazing! The chemistry you see with Marley and Ryder is not acting,” confessed Benoist in an 2012 interview with Teen Vogue.
They announced their engagement in July 2013 and were married in March 2015 in a small ceremony. Benoist and Jenner, who have no children together, were last spotted together at the Toronto International Film Festival a few months ago.

Though both stars have yet to comment on the divorce, word on the street is that the couple drifted apart due to work as the production for the 2nd season of “Supergirl” was moved to Vancouver.
