Melissa Benoist’s ex-husband, actor Blake Jenner, has confirmed he was responsible for physical abuse Benoist opened up about in an Instagram video from nearly a year ago. “I am a survivor of domestic violence, or IPV, intimate partner violence,” Benoist said in the video, without naming her abuser. Jenner confirmed Thursday on Instagram that Benoist was referring to him.Two weeks ago, the “Supergirl” actress had a baby boy with her new husband and co-star Chris Wood.

  • What Melissa did was self defense, in response of what he did to her.... Blake on the other hand needs some serious anger management therapy perhaps and just therapy in general. Like he needs some serious help because that isn't cool. You strike at her and you don't think she would strike at you back in SELF DEFENSE.... I mean come on Blake. On the positive side of this I'm just happy to hear that she survived, got out of that marriage and is now happily married and has a new baby. Congratulations Melissa & Chris. I pray and wish you many many many more blessings and happy years to come! :)

  • I hope he gets treated. I hope history doesn't repeat itself if he's lucky enough to have another woman trust him. I hope he becomes a better person and gets his life back on track. I hope he changes. He's human, he's capable of that. I hope she's okay after what Blake posted. I hope she is well, Chris is well and their son is well. I hope they're healthy and happy. I hope these demons don't torment her anymore and finally live the life she deserves. I'm happy that relationship is over. It was clearly toxic on both ends and lasted way too longer than it should have. I hope they recover from their traumas and their injuries. I hope they live their best lives.

I mean I don’t really see this as something you can bring someone down for and we don’t know anything about their childhoods but all i know that their relationship was toxic and maybe Melissa was toxic or maybe she wasn’t but you can’t ignore the fact that he might have changed or Melissa might have forgave him....

  • Not many victims get validation from their abusers, though she likely doesn’t need it, I hope his admission provides her some measure of peace and closure. Sadly, that’s also a dick move on his part to throw out there that “it went both ways”. Though I am certain he was a victim in his own right, Melissa wasn’t the perpetrator of his victimhood... I hope he gets help and doesn’t perpetuate this pain and violence onto future partners.

Secondly he started the abuse and would get jealous easily. The reason why Marley and Jake didn’t last long was because of Blake cause he was that jealous of them.

  • woman fighting back against a man that is hitting her is self defense. She has no reason to excuse her own rage. I would not want to be Blake Jenner. (the Ted Bundy lookalike) That guy has ruined any career he may have had. Pretty lame of him to try to flip thing's around and imply Melissa physically attacked him. Yeah I'm sure she just hit him for no reason.

I care about Melissa and Thanks the God that she's with better people. I may not have a golden heart but it's still have feelings and emotions and sympathy. And with that heart I'll pray to God to heal them from their dark past and help him to be a better person than he was in past and this doesn't mean that I've forgiven him.

  • Admitting his wrong doing isnt enough, I hope he is seeing someone about his anger issues, so that this doesnt happen in future relationships. If he feels true regret he will take actions to correct this behaviour. There is something deeply wrong with a person who could do something like this to someone they supposedly care about, I condemn his actions fully, but also hope he gets some help, because saying I'm sorry does not fix the core underlying issues inside of him.

  • His “apology” is so full of gaslighting. The only occasion of violence against Melissa he describes he says was an accident - he threw his phone “aimlessly” yeah right. He then goes into detail of how she abused him but everything he describes was what she said he did to her. Watch the video Melissa made last year. The jealousy, controlling, shaming, isolating - all the things she said he was doing and he doesn’t say he did it to her. And he waited a year after she spoke out until she just gave birth.

    • Yeah and even though he claimed to take ”full responsibility”, he then went on to talk about ”the pain inflicted onto [him] by [his] former partner”. It’s ridiculous. I have no doubt that Melissa hit him back, but an apology is not the time or place to blame others. Also, one of the things from Melissa’s video that I reacted strongly to was that she said that Blake had made jokes to her mother about how much Melissa cried, even though the reason she cried was because he was abusing her. That sounds almost psychopathic to me. It sounds like he was so sure he wouldn’t get caught that he could just throw around jokes and clues like that to Melissa’s mom and family members without any worry that someone would figure it out. Disgusting. And very strange timing for Blake to wait almost a year before speaking out and then timing it right after Melissa’s birthday and right after she announced the birth of her first baby.

Shame on you Blake Jenner for what seems repeated domestic abuse. One time of even threatening to harm my ex-wife was enough for me to realize how insidious such behavior is. What the female does is always legitimized when the male knows he is physically dominant. Anything u did was unacceptable. I pray that you have learned your lesson.

    • @MusicLover_KB I can totally see your point of view. And I'm not trying to be disrespectful towards you. But his "apology" had so many red flags. He said that when he had thrown his phone it wasn't meant to hit her he just happened to throw it super close to her that it damaged her eye. She did admited in her video that she didn't liked the person she became. She started to fight Back as she should. But he basically put the blame on her. He didn't take full responsibility if he blames her. He's victimizing himself. I will always stand with the victim.

    • Not necessarily, I think that is something that can genuinely happen. U know, 2 people who have dealt with a lot of abuse in their past coming together and forming a relationship but end up doing toxic things to hurt EACH OTHER despite intending to show each other love? I think that is plausible, and I personally don't think pointing that out is the same as blaming your abusive nature on your childhood. It's not an unbelievable thought.
