Another One of Your Favorite Glee Stars Just Broke Up with Longtime Bae
Seeing as 2016 was pretty much the worst year ever, it’s really not that shocking that a celebrity couple we all thought would last forever is now over. According to TMZ, Melissa Benoist filed for divorce from her husband and Glee co-star, Blake Jenner. The pair got engaged in 2013 and were secretly married in March 2015.
The 28-year-old actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for wanting the divorce and also requested to legally drop the ‘Jenner’ from her name.
While Melissa and Blake’s breakup may come to a shock to most people, making them think that something shady went down to provoke it, Us Weekly reports that that’s not the case at all.
“The distance was an issue, things weren’t working. It’s amicable and mutual,” a source told the magazine.
The news of the longtime couple’s separation comes just over a month after another Glee star, Naya Rivera, filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Ryan Dorsey.
All of these Glee co-stars gave love a try IRL:
Lea Michele & Cory Monteith
The year Glee first aired, Lea began dating Theo Stockman, a star of Broadway's American Idiot, and Cory was still dating model Julie Vardalos. But, after Cory & Julie called it quits in 2010, and Lea & Theo called it quits in 2011, the on-screen love interests gave off-screen romance a try.
The beautiful pair known as Monchele (or Finchel, on the show) stayed together until Cory, unexpectedly, passed away in July 2013.
