Melissa Benoist who is popular for her appearance in “Supergirl” has filed divorce papers against her husband Blake Jenner on 23rd November, Friday for an unexpected reason. The couple is ending their four-year marriage citing 'irreconcilable differences' between them.
According to TMZ, the twenty-eight-year-old beauty has asked the court to drop her surname Jenner from her legal name Melissa Benoist. They have no kids, so there is no issue but Melissa has asked to block the court’s ability to prevent spousal support to either of them.
Until the day after Christmas, there was no any hint about their divorce as twenty-four-year-old actor Jenner posted a video on Twitter where he was seen playing with his nephew.

Earlier this March, Melissa disclosed PEOPLE that she loved working with her husband in "Supergirl." She said-
“We only have fun working together.”
“He’s my person to act with. He’s my favorite scene partner, always.”

Isn’t it strange to know that Melissa is ending her relationship with her husband stating 'irreconcilable differences' who once said that she loved working with her husband and is always her favorite scene partner?
Melissa and Blake first met each other in 2012 when they were both starring on the final seasons of Fox’s musical comedy “Glee.” They exchanged vows in front of their family in a subtle and private wedding in March 2015. They were later spotted flying to Europe for their honeymoon. The couple got engaged in July of 2013.
