There isn't a day that goes by in 2016 that doesn't bring some kind of heartbreak.
One of our favorite couples who actually met on set of the hit show Glee are getting divorced after less than 2 years of marriage. Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner are calling it quits! This is utterly shocking – no one saw it coming. Of course, these two are known for keeping their relationship on the down low, but there really weren't any signs of trouble in paradise.
Blake posted a photo of him and Melissa looking really happy together just about 3 months ago with the caption, "To my best friend and my partner in crime,
I love you and wish you the very best of birthdays of today. @Melissabenoist Thank you for being the best person I know. ???."
According to TMZ, court documents show that Melissa filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the separation. Not only that but she doesn't want either of them to be granted spousal support and she allegedly wants her maiden name back. Yikes!
There's so many memories of these two acting on screen together. From their days on Glee to the couple episodes Blake appeared in on Melissa's new show Supergirl. They were a match made in television heaven and they knew it.
Melissa previously said, "We only have fun working together. He's my person to act with. He's my favorite scene partner, always."
Not only that but she even spilled about what really happened when they first laid eyes on each other. "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."
Our hearts go out to them as this must be an incredibly difficult time. Hopefully, the split is peaceful and they can continue to be amicable if they ever cross paths again. Until then, we wish both of them well.
