Love Is Dead: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Have Split After 9 Years Of Marriage

Stop the presses. Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have released a joint statement announcing their split after 9 years of marriage.

The two stars both posted the same statement to Instagram and gave the exclusive to People, writing:

“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 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. 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 use of emojis and casual wordplay is really shaking us right now. We may be taking this harder than either of them.

Channing and Jenna first met on the set of Step Up in 2006 and were married in July of 2009. They have a four-year-old daughter, Everly.

Excuse us while we rewatch their episode of Lip Sync Battle on repeat and cry.
