Blake Jenner, 28, is coming forward about allegations made by his ex-wife Melissa Benoist, 32. \u201cI take full responsibility and accountability for the hurt that I inflicted during my relationship with my past partner\u2014emotionally, mentally and yes, physically,\u201d the Glee\u00a0alum posted in a lengthy statement posted to his Instagram account on Thursday, October 8, referencing Melissa who he \u201cfell in love with\u201d at just 20 years old. \u201cAs great as the love that was shared between us, the shared brokenness that stemmed from our childhoods proved to be greater,\u201d he explained. The actor then accused Melissa of abusing him, as well. \u201cIt is important to understand that there was mental, emotional and physical abuse inflicted from both ends,\u201d he alleged, detailing an incident in which he \u201cthrew\u201d a phone at the\u00a0Supergirl\u00a0star that left him in \u201ca state of shock. He went on to explain that they sought professional help. \u201cAs a result, my former partner and I began to see a therapist together, but despite numerous attempts to work our issues out, we would find ourselves stuck in this toxic cycle that our relationship became,\u201d he added. \u201cThe mental and emotional abuse began at the start of our relationship,\u201d he wrote, going on to detail how Melissa allegedly abused him. \u201cI was scratched. I was slapped\u2026I was punched in the face, which caused a trip to the hospital to treat my broken nose. I, too, have had to conceal and make up lies about many visible injuries I had incurred throughout the relationship,\u201d he claimed, explaining that his behavior towards Melissa came from a \u201cfalse sense of masculinity that I felt the need to uphold.\u201d Melissa and Blake \u2014 who met on Glee \u2014 were married from 2015 \u2013 2017. Last year, she came forward as a victim of abuse. \u201cHe was a magnanimous person, who didn\u2019t really give you a choice not to be drawn to him\u2026He could be charming, funny, manipulative, devious\u2026\u201d she explained, not naming him. \u201cHe loved me. I thought I loved him, and I was going to make it work\u2026None of that registered as abuse, because I was worried about how he felt at that point, to even comprehend how it even affected me,\u201d she also said in the lengthy Nov. 2019 video. \u201cIn retrospect, I see that each red flag followed a very clear path on things becoming violent\u2026the stark truth is I learned what it felt like to be pinned down and slapped repeatedly, punched so hard the wind was knocked out of me, dragged by my hair across pavement, head butted, pinched until my skin broke, shoved into a wall so hard the drywall broke, choked,\u201d she detailed. \u201cI learned to lock myself in rooms but quickly stopped because the door was inevitably broken down. I learned to not value any of my property \u2014 replaceable and irreplaceable. I learned not to value myself.\u201d Melissa since tied the knot with her Supergirl co-star Chris Wood, 31, back in Sept. 2019.
