Blake Jenner: Actor, Singer, and Model

Blake Jenner was a youth with quiet ambition and good talent. This showed early in his career in TV as a cast of the famous teenage show and series Glee. However, it wasn’t an easy path to success. In order to become a cast member at Glee, he had to slug it out in the second season of The Glee Project; this was against 15 others who were vying to be cast. He eventually won and got the role of Ryder Lynn in the fourth season. From there, more castings soon followed, the most notable of which was in the films Billy Boy, The Edge of Seventeen and Everybody Wants Some, and the TV shows Supergirl and What/If. It is worth noting as well that Blake Jenner won a Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Breakout Star Award for his performance in Glee.

Is Blake Jenner married or single?

Blake Jenner is currently single. He was once married to co-actor Melissa Benoist. They met on the set of Glee, and got engaged in 2013. Although they claimed that they got married 2 years later in 2015, in an interview Jenner said that they “had been married for longer than anyone knows”. This led to the belief that they got married in secret in 2013. Unfortunately, their love did not last, and the pair got divorced in 2017.

Why did Blake Jenner get divorced?

At the time, the pair kept quiet about the reasons behind their divorce, Benoist simply cited irreconcilable differences when she filed for divorce in 2016. However, although not naming Jenner at the time, she has since come out to discuss the domestic violence that she suffered in a relationship which was marked by continued abusive episodes. On one occasion, she had a phone thrown at her, which caused severe damage to her eye, tearing her iris, nearly rupturing her eyeball, lacerating her skin and breaking her nose. Melissa says that she and her partner came up with the excuse that she tripped and fell on a pot plant when asked about the injury.  She says that throughout the relationship, she suffered from extreme control and manipulation, as well as severe physical abuse where she was hit, dragged by her hair, and choked.

Although she never named Jenner as the perpetrator, he has since admitted throwing his phone at her during an argument.


Why do people hate Blake Jenner?

Jenner was loved by many due to his work on the big screen, playing heartthrobs on programs such as Glee and Supergirl. After the accusations of domestic violence were brought out by his ex Wife Melissa which he has subsequently admitted to, many have now turned on him.
