Channing and Jenna’s Marriage Had Been “Over For Awhile"
We know that when a popular celebrity couple breaks up we all get up in arms saying that love is dead and no break up could be worse than this one etc. etc.
But seriously in this case it is real because Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum were literal couple goals with their insane dance moves, adorable parenting moments, perfect couples costumes and of course the fact that they're both so damn photogenic.
And so when the couple publicly announced that they were heading for splits-ville yesterday after eight years of marriage together, fans everywhere were completely shocked and slightly crushed.
But apparently the break up was actually “a long time coming” with a source close to the couple stating that Channing had actually moved out of their family home earlier this year.
“They have been separated and have had a few months to get used to this privately. They are both doing ok with it because it was a long time coming,” said the insider.
“They had been trying for a long time to see if they could make it work. It became clear over the last year that they wanted different things and were no longer on the same path.”
However, the statement released to both of their Instagram accounts made clear that there was no hate between the couple and that they will remain to be a loving family. They also claimed that there were no “secrets nor salacious events” behind the decision.
Channing and Jenna met on the set on Step Up before marrying in July of 2009. They share a 4-year-old daughter together named.
BRB while we go and cry while watching Step Up…I guess on the plus side Channing is single now ladies! Maybe we’ll go watch Magic Mike instead to cheer us up…
