Popular Hollywood actor Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced their separation after almost 9 years of marriage. The star couple shared a joint statement on their Instagram handles respectively.
The couple started with, “Hey world! So…We have something we would like to share,” and added, “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.”
The couple has lovingly decided to part ways. They said, “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 realizing 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.”
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum met on the set of their dance film ‘Step Up’ for the first time and they started dating shortly after. They tied the knot in 2009 and are the proud parent of a young daughter Everly, who’ll turn 5 this may.
Last month Channing shared a picture on his Instagram with a caption that reads, “This is what it looks like when a little tyrant fairy artist holds you down and makes your face look “better””
On the work front, Jenna Dewan Tatum is currently hosting the NBC’s ‘World Of Dance’. On the other hand, Channing is giving his voice to Migo in the upcoming animated comedy film ‘Smallfoot’.
