The Internets collective heart was broken earlier this week when Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced their split after nine years of marriage. The couple shared joint statements on their Instagram accounts on April 2 letting the world know that they, the best-looking couple ever, were calling it quits.
“We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the statement reads. “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,” they continued. “We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents to Everly.”
Jenna had been posting cryptic Instagram posts during the months leading up to the split, signs we all opted to ignore.
A source close to Jenna told Us Magazine that it was a long time coming due to the couples differing lifestyles that had developed over time. The source referred to Channing’s dedication to his career having played a part and that “It just became clear they wanted different things.The source continued to say that ”Jenna wanted him to go out and do the things he wanted to do and was always supportive. But it became clear that he enjoyed being away. She gave him all the space he wanted, but it wasn’t good for their marriage.”
Well, there goes my hope in true love!
