While the news of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s split may have taken us by surprise (yeah, we watched Step Up last night. Didn’t you??), apparently there were clues leading up to their very sad split.
In an interview with Health back in February, Jenna hinted that her apparently perfect life was far from what was portrayed on social media and gossip mags.
“I despise the word ‘perfect,’” she said, before being asked how she keeps her marriage solid.
“When people say you guys have such a perfect life, I want to scream and tell them no one’s perfect. I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we’ve really grown together.”
The “up until this point” sounded a little ominous but the sentiment makes sense – a healthy relationship is about growth. She continued:
“Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa. But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work. Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that. We’ve always had the same values.
“But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other.”
When asked whether she and Channing were planning on expanding their family, Jenna said she hadn’t made a decisions yet, saying she’d “[leave] it to the universe to show me the way.”
“It might be in the cards, but I’ll know when I know. A lot of women I know plan it, and that’s their decision, they want it within three years, but that was not a possibility for us. It felt too overwhelming. I’m so thrilled with one child.”
Since the split, a source has told Page Six that the separation occured after “spending more time apart because of the pressure of work.”
Meanwhile, everyone seems to be either devastated or over the moon over the news of their split, with some people declaring that love is dead and others celebrating Channing’s newfound single status.
