Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist has bravely revealed she was in an abusive relationship. The actress opened up about the abuse she suffered in an emotional video.

She uploaded a fourteen minute IGTV video called ‘Life Isn’t Always What It Seems’.

The actress shared, “I am a survivor of domestic violence or IPV (intimate partner violence), which is something I never thought I would say let alone be broadcasting into the ether.”

In the harrowing video, she details the violence she was subjected to throughout her relationship with an unnamed partner.

“The stark truth is I learned what it felt like to be pinned down and slapped repeatedly, punched so hard I felt the wind go out of me, dragged by my hair across pavement, head-butted, pinched until my skin broke, shoved against the wall so hard the drywall broke, choked.”

Melissa revealed that her partner threw his iPhone at her face resulting in permanent damage to her eye and a broken nose.

She was married to her Glee co-star Blake Jenner during this time.

After that alarming attack, the actress knew she had to escape.

“Something inside of me broke, this was too far.”

The Glee star added, “Leaving was not a walk in the park. It is not an event, it’s a process. I felt complicated feelings of guilt for leaving and for hurting someone I had protected for so long, and yes, mournful feeling of leaving something familiar.”

“Luckily, the people I let in, the more I was bolstered, I never lost the sense of clarity that kept telling me, ‘You do not deserve this.’”

The actress is now married to her Supergirl co-star Chris Wood.


The devil works hard, but Ryan Murphy works harder. The creator of the show is gearing up to launch another season of our favourite macabre show, and we can't contain our delight.

The excitement is brewing for American Horror Story season 9, following the brilliant crossover season which saw Murder House characters meet Coven characters.

Series nine of AHS 1984 will premiere in the UK on September 19, 2019 on Fox. What else do you need to know? Well, Ryan is a busy man and is developing another show with Netflix and US network FX.


A post shared by American Horror Story (@ahsfx) on

Season 10 has been announced for September 2020, so there's that to look forward to. The title of series nine is 1984, as released via the show's Instagram.

The slo-mo trailer shows a woman being chased through the woods by a blade-wielding aggressor, set to Billie Eilish's creepy song Six Feet Under. We're reaching for our night lights already.

Variety reported that AHS veteran and legendary actress Sarah Paulson won't be returning for the ninth run of the show, which broke our hearts.


A post shared by American Horror Story Fans (@thehorrorstory) on

Deadline now claims that Paulson will appear in a guest role, similarly to her role as medium Billie Dean Howard in the Murder House season. Thank the Lord for that/

The actress scored a lead role in Ryan Murphy's Netflix series Ratched, so we're assuming she's far too busy for another headline slot. Fellow original star Evan Peters is sitting season nine out.

However, the actor subtlely implied that he will return for season 10 when he was interviewed by Digital Spy .


A post shared by(@evanpetersnation) on

The main cast list for the season has been confirmed via teaser footage on Instagram, and the 1980s vibes are oh so real.

Emma Roberts is back with a bang, having appeared in Coven, Freak Show, Cult, Apocalypse and Ryan Murphy's other series Scream Queens.

Winter Olympian Gus Kenworthy is making his acting debut as Emma Roberts' boyfriend, and Matthew Morrison (of Glee fame) has a big role in the new season.

Cody Fern is back for a new role, after his stint in Murphy's Versace season of American Crime Story. The Anti-Christ from the Apocalypse is sure to bring his talent.

Leslie Grossman will also appear in season nine, having shown up  in the Murphy series Popular. How prolific is Ryan Murphy, does he ever take days off?

Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, star of Booksmart, will also return after her roles in Cult and Apocolypse


A post shared by  (@praisethelourd) on

John Carroll Lunch, who played Twisty the Clown in Freak Show and Cult and serial killer John Wayne Gacey in Hotel, has a haunting new role in S9.

Zach Villa is also appearing in the ninth series, and DeRon Horton (Dear White People) has also joined the AHS cast for the first time.

Star of Murphy's series Pose Angelica Ross will bring the 1980s slasher vibes, but Cult and Apocalypse star Billy Eichner (The Lion King) also won't be returning.


A post shared by @ahs1984_world on

The only actors who have been in every season of  American Horror Story are Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, but Lily Rabe and Frances Conroy have only missed one season.

The icon that is Jessica Lange could also make a guest appearance, and the latest season added Hollywood legend Joan Collins to the cast. What long-term stars could show up next?

1984 is set in a summer camp, with the Coven crew appearing in a future season of the show but not series 9. Bring on September 19, we can't wait much longer.

Huge congratulations are in order for Glee alum Harry Shum Jr. and his wife Shelby Rabara who have shared the most joyous pregnancy news.

The lovebirds confirmed they are expecting their first child together in the sweetest way.

Harry took to social media to make the announcement by sharing a snap of him and his partner of 12 years.


A post shared by Harry Shum Jr (@harryshumjr) on

The Crazy Rich Asians star stood behind his wife in the snap and placed his hands on her bump. Shelby placed her hands on her cheeks and made a surprised face in the goofy snap.

We could not be happier for the parents-to-be. Fans were certainly overjoyed by the news and quickly congratulated the pair.

“Oh my god, my heart. This is so beautiful,” one wrote.

Another added: “Luckiest child ever. Congratulations!”


A post shared by Harry Shum Jr (@harryshumjr) on

“Congratulations you two!! A new and exciting journey awaits!” said one fan.

Award-winning director Ryan Murphy has penned a moving Instagram post, opening up about his personal life.

The brilliant screenwriter, director, and producer is best known for creating hit TV shows American Horror Story and Glee.

He also shares two sons, Ford (4) and Logan (5) with his husband David Miller. Tragically, Ryan revealed that his four-year-old son has been battling with cancer.

“I’d like you to meet Ford Theodore Miller Murphy. Today is a big day in his and our family’s lives,” he said.

“Two years ago, this sweet little innocent boy with a deep belly laugh and an obsession with Monster Trucks was diagnosed with neuroblastoma…an often fatal pediatric cancer.


A post shared by Ryan Murphy (@mrrpmurphy) on

“Ford’s cancer — an abdominal tumor the size of a tennis ball — was found during a normal check up by his brilliant pediatrician Dr. Lauren Crosby. From there, Ford has undergone a huge surgery and several difficult procedures.”

Ryan praised his partner for remaining a symbol of strength for him and their son, reassuring and supporting the family each step of the way.

“My better half, David Miller, was a rock through this — strong and patient and loving (I was always a trembling wreck).

“Ford was strong as well, and today he is thriving. He just celebrated his fourth birthday, a milestone we are all so thrilled about. Ford is doing so well because of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.”


A post shared by Sarah Paulson (@mssarahcatharinepaulson74) on

The father went on to announce that they are donating a wing in tribute to their son as well as donating $10 million dollars for families who cannot afford health care.

They want “other children [to] experience the love and care of this exceptional facility.”

“We are so honored and lucky to contribute, and encourage everybody who can to do the same. We love you, Ford”.

Both Ryan and David are overjoyed that their son is able to celebrate this birthday milestone and continue to cherish each and every moment they get with young Ford.

Hopefully, the money they donate can help families going through a similar experience and have the potential to save another child’s life.


Glee alum Lea Michele has announced her engagement to boyfriend Zandy Reich. The actress shared the joyous news on her Instagram account.

She shared a photo of her huge 4-carat engagement ring and simply wrote, “Yes”, alongside a diamond ring emoji.

Jenna Dewan wrote, “Umm, Oh my god Lea! Congrats.”

“I LOVE everything about this,” said Ashley Tisdale.

January Jones, Katherine McPhee, and Sarah Hyland also congratulated the 31-year-old.



A post shared by Lea Michele (@leamichele) on

Fans have also been expressing their delight online, with many mentioning how far Lea has come since losing her boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Monteith in 2013.  

It is understood that Lea has been dating clothing company president Zandy Reich for a year. The pair had been friends for years but became romantically involved last summer.

Lea previously opened up to People about her life with 32-year-old Zandy, “I’m very happy and I think that you can tell. I don’t really talk a lot about my personal life, but I’m also the kind of person where I always say, ‘You will see how happy I am just by looking at my face.’ I can’t hide it.”

The actress joked about Ryan Murphy, who she has worked closely with since her days on Glee, saying he has given Zandy his approval.

“When my boyfriend got the seal of approval from Ryan Murphy, that was it. Yeah my parents, yeah friends, whatever. But Ryan Murphy, it’s a done deal — it sealed the deal,” she shared.

Huge congratulations to Lea and Zandy.


After six seasons on Fox, Glee drew to a close in 2015.

But if you think you'll be waiting decades for any form of reunion from the McKinley High School glee club, Lea Michele has news for you.

Speaking to Chelsea Handler this week, the 31-year-old actress, who played Rachel Berry in the hit musical show, admitted that she would welcome a reboot sooner rather than later.

While Lea acknowledged that a reboot may seem a little premature,  her devotion to the show means she would happily sign up tomorrow.

"It was just on the air, so everybody cool it," she joked before adding: "But, with that being said, I would do it tomorrow."

To the sound of applause from Chelsea's audience, Lea said: "I loved playing Rachel Berry. I loved that cast and it was so special."

"What we did with bringing music into people's homes and these characters that were so relatable. I loved it and I'd do it in a heartbeat."

Who wants to start a petition?


Former Glee actor, Mark Salling, pleaded guilty to the possession of child pornography in a Los Angeles court, yesterday afternoon.

The 35-year-old now faces between four and seven years in prison and has been ordered to pay $50,000 to each victim.

He must also register as a sex offender, and will be supervised for 20 years upon his release.

The actor was first arrested for the possession of child pornography in December 2015, after investigators found thousands of images on his laptop and hard drive during a search at his LA home.

It's understood Salling pleaded guilty to “one felony count of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor.”

In 2016, Mark's ex-girlfriend and Glee co-star, Naya Rivera, admitted the charges against him didn't come as a huge surprise.

"He was always just a very dark soul to me," she told Entertainment Tonight.

"I always felt like there was something that he was wrestling with."

The actor played bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the successful Fox musical series Glee, from 2009 to 2015.


According to emerging reports, Glee stars Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner have decided to call time on their relationship after just one year of marriage.

The former couple, who began dating in 2013, are understood to have cited 'irreconcilable differences' on their petition and Melissa has applied to drop Jenner from her surname.

In addition to this is is understood that neither party are planning to seek spousal support.

While the couple, who tied the knot in 2015, have yet to make an official statement, fans have used Blake's Instagram page to plead with the television stars to reconsider their decision.

Posting beneath a photo of the couple during happier times, one fan wrote: "Please think the divorce over." while another added: "Please don't be true!"

Melissa and Blake, who played love interests Marley Rose and Ryder Lynn in the popular musical show, do not share any children together.



Former Glee star Mark Salling has reportedly been accused of raping a 22-year-old woman.

The woman alleged that she and the 34-year-old actor entered a room to have sex, but when she changed her mind, she claimed that he refused to stop and forced himself on her.

At the time she had been dating Mark for a couple of months.

According to TMZ, the alleged victim filed a police report in April this year, nearly four years after the alleged rape is said to have occurred.

The L.A. County District Attorney is currently in the process of deciding whether or not to file charges against the actor.

In May this year, the singer-songwriter was indicted for possessing child pornography.

There is more great celebrity news today as former Glee star, Dianna Agron has tied the knot with Mumford & Sons' banjoist Winston Marshall.

The pair are said to have wed in Morocco over the weekend after getting engaged back in December 2015.

Dianna, 30, and Winston, 27, were first spotted together back in July, 2015 and it's been a whirlwind romance ever since.

Dianna remains very private with her 1.1 million Instagram followers yet to get a glimpse at her new husband.

Huge congratulations to the newly married couple and hopefully they'll decide to share some memories from the big day.
