The Supergirl star Melissa Benoist’s four-year-old marriage with Blake Jenner is now ending in divorce.
As reported by TMZ, the couple quoted irreconcilable differences as the cause for the divorce, but, they apparently agreed amicably about the division of property. Their agreement wasn’t filed in the court, and it has clearly delineated as to who gets what after the divorce.
It took the divorce one year to finalize after the initial announcement about it.
Considering the behind-the-scenes chaos at Arrowverse, Benoist is reportedly pleased to get rid of this situation.
Only last month, The Flash showrunner Andrew Kreisberg faced sexual harassment accusations by 19 different people, which led to his getting suspended from all DC projects.
Benoist has been strongly vocal among the fans, and she took to Instagram to share her opinion about the matter.
“I am a woman who leads a show that supports equality and feminism, empowerment, and fighting for what is right,” Benoist wrote. “I have always tried to conduct myself this way personally, as well.
“Sadly, the show and my career are a part of an industry that doesn’t always mirror these sentiments. This is heartbreaking, and at times makes me feel helpless. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.
“But I’m an optimist. I believe lasting change is possible, and when people are mistreated, they should have a safe forum to speak their truth and always be heard. And when people commit crimes or harass others they should always be held accountable — no matter what industry they work in or how much power they wield.
“I’ve spoken up about it in the past — publicly and not so publicly — and I’ll continue to do so. All of us should, without fear or shame. We all need to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
“So this week, I’ll head back to work on Supergirl even more committed to being a part of changing the norm by listening when people speak up, and refusing to accept an environment that is anything less than a save respectful and collaborative space.”
The mid-season finale of Supergirl aired earlier in December, and the series will be back on The CW next year.
