Melissa Benoist is putting an end to her marriage.

E! News can confirm the Supergirl star has filed for divorce from husband Blake Jenner after nearly four years of marriage.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, Melissa cited "irreconcilable differences" for the split and doesn't want either party to give spousal support. Their marriage date is listed as June 19, 2013. They have no children together.

During their relationship, the couple appeared on two episodes of Supergirl together. At the time, Melissa gushed about working alongside her husband.

"We only have fun working together," she told People. "He's my person to act with. He's my favorite scene partner, always."

The couple was also able to share the small screen together on several episodes of the Fox series Glee where they first met.

 "We clicked on his first day, during a ‘Born to Hand Jive' dance rehearsal," Melissa confessed to Teen Vogue. "I love talking about it. Blake is amazing! The chemistry you see with Marley and Ryder is not acting."

Back in September, the couple was all smiles as they traveled to the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival to support Blake's latest project The Edge of Seventeen.

And while the couple tried their best to keep their relationship private, both parties occasionally posted photos of each other on social media. 

"Here wit da coolest @MelissaBenoist at @austinfilm 2016 awards-Can't wait 4 @EWSMovie premiere," Blake shared on Twitter earlier this year. "#EverybodyWantsSome" 

TMZ was first to report the divorce.
