If you thought Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’ split from last year was a blindside, the latest news from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan takes the cake.
Just moments ago, the Hollywood IT couple took to their personal social media to post a heartbreaking joint statement about going separate ways. It looks like happily-ever-after rarely lasts in Hollywood, do they?
The lengthy statement reads:
“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 flames met while filming “Step Up” in 2006. Sparks fly and they started dating after that. “When I proposed to my wife I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me,” Tatum previously told Nick Grimshaw, on his BBC Radio One’s “The Breakfast Show”.
He added, “I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off. She basically broke down crying. I thought, ‘This is not going well at all,’ so I had to propose to her sooner rather than later.”
He popped the question in September 2008 and they walking down the aisle in an outdoor Malibu ceremony in July 2009. Fast forward four years later, they welcomed their first and only child – daughter, Everly.

When asked about the recipe to a successful marriage, the “Magic Mike” star once told E! News, “Just listen to each other—that’s it. There’s no magic recipe. Every two unique snowflakes that meet are going to have a different combination.”
We’re pretty much still in disbelief over this split 🙁
