Channing Tatum + Jenna Dewan Tatum Through the Years
Hollywood love fell out of rhythm Monday night (April 2) when longtime couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum — who famously met on the set of 2006's Step Up — announced their separation. They'd been married since 2009 and have a five-year-old son together — understandably, fans were devastated.
"We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple," the couple wrote in a shared statement. "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."
Followers tried to offer support.
"So sorry to hear about your loss. I can feel the love you had for your wife. Hope you can find love again one day maybe," one wrote, while another noted "We’re still lost for words right now. We all thought our two favorite amazing people was gonna make it till the end. And today, we were all wrong. All of us were wrong."
And while The Tatums' love story may have closed its current chapter, it's still a beautiful tale to revisit. Look back at a collection of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum photos through the years below.
