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 hitched or flying solo?
Ladies, get your hopes up because Blake Jenner is currently single. He was once married to his co-star Melissa Benoist, whom he met on the set of Glee. The two lovebirds got engaged in 2013 and claimed to have tied the knot in 2015. However, in an interview, Jenner spilled the tea and 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 story didn’t have a happy ending, 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.
