Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum Split After 9 Years of Marriage

Here’s what they had to say

Please grab all the tissues you currently have in your possession, because Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are splitting up after nearly nine years of marriage. The couple announced the news in a joint statement to People:

‘Hey world! So…We have something we would like to share. First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into ‘alternative facts’ 😉 So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction.

‘We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision—just two best-friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible. We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly. We won’t be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family’s privacy. Sending lots of love to everyone, Chan&Jenna.’

The former couple also both posted the statement to their social media accounts:

Channing and Jenna met on the set of the classic dance movie Step Up, and have a 4-year-old daughter named Everly. The news of their split comes completely out of the blue — in fact, just last month Jenna shared a sweet photo of herself and her husband covered in face paint courtesy of their daughter.

Meanwhile, just three months ago Channing posted this beautiful shoutout to Jenna for her birthday.

Please excuse us while we crawl under a table and cry.
