Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan met on the set of Step Up and immediately fell in love which resulted in 9 years of marriage.
Unfortunately, it looks like the fairytale romance is over for Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum as they have recently announced that they are splitting up after nearly nine years of marriage. The gorgeous couple met on the set of the 2006 film Step Up and got married in July 2009. The pair’s on-screen chemistry has always been electric to watch, and their lip sync battle was definitely one of the best.
Here’s what the couple released in a joint statement regarding their relationship status:
“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 or 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.”
The couple further said that they wouldn’t be commenting further regarding the issue and they are asking their fans to respect their privacy at this time.
We wish both Channing and Jenna and their young daughter all the best at this difficult time. Here’s what Channing posted on his Instagram account.
