Channing Tatum and Wife Separate after 8 Years of Marriage

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum had made a public announcement of  their separation in a joint post on Instagram Monday. According to statement

“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,” the power couple wrote. “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.”

Finally posting that “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.”

Numerous fans have taken after the pair since the two began their romance after they met on movie set ‘Step Up’ in 2006. They got married 2009 and in May 2013,had a lovely girl, Everly.

A year ago, Jenna conversed with Ellen, host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, about how they met on the set.

“So three days go by, and he goes out with all the dancers from Step Up and had this crazy, wild tequila night. And he said he had the chance ‘to be free’ and he couldn’t stop thinking about me. So he comes down to my hotel room a 2 a.m., and he’s banging on the door, and I’m like, ‘What is going on?!’ And I go and I open the door, and he’s in a sombrero. He’s naked—no, I’m sorry. He’s in underwear, underwear, sombrero and Ugg boots, and he’s like, ‘Let’s do this,’” the 37-year-old actress said.

During interview meeting with BBC Radio One’s The Breakfast Show With Nick Grimshaw, Channing shared that he incidentally influenced Jenna to cry before he proposed to her.

“When I proposed to my wife I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me,” Channing said. “I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off.”

 

“I told her, ‘I don’t believe in the institution of marriage and I don’t think I ever want to get married,’” he confessed. “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 in the long run popped the question in September 2008 amid their vacation in Maui

Jenna conceded that their marriage isn’t “flawless” and comes with challenges. “At the point when individuals say, ‘You all have such a flawless life,’ I need to shout and let them know, ‘No one’s perfect,’” she revealed to Heath magazine.

“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. 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,” she explained. “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.”
