Apart from being a husband and wife, the pair was also ‘Supergirl’ co-stars but Jenner only appeared as a recurring actor. In an interview, Benoist said that she loved working with Jenner. Things started getting sour between the pair when Benoist moved to Vancouver, BC to offset costs along with the ‘Supergirl’ team. 

Benoist filed for divorce in later 2016 giving "irreconcilable differences” as the reason. A source close to the pair claimed that things stopped working between the pair because of their distance.
