Channing Tatum breaks his silence following news of split with wife Jenna Dewan
We’re still crying!
After almost nine years of marriage, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan broke our hearts and told us they had split up.
It didn’t take long for rumours to begin swirling about what could have caused the breakup, some including Channing’s drinking problem and the fact he likes to go out a lot and flirts with other women.
"Happy to clarify that absolutely none of these rumors are true. The reason our statement was so positive [was] because that’s the reality of the situation."
Now, a rep for Channing has spoken to E! News addressing rumours head on:
“The media is fabricating stories and none of these accusations are remotely true ... Channing and Jenna released an honest and loving statement which is the only truth.”
A source also spoke to the publication and said:
“These are not issues, this is fiction. We understand that everyone is super interested in speculating on their private life and that there are people who think they have an idea of the inner life of this relationship, but it's simply not the case ... They are lovingly deciding to continue their lives together as friends and parents of Everly because that's how their relationship has grown.”
It’s being reported that Tatum moved out of the couple’s home a few months ago with a source telling People magazine:
“This has been a long time coming. Like any marriage, they’ve had their ups and downs over the years but they really started to grow apart within the last year.”
In February, Jenna gave an interview with Health magazine, making it clear that she and Channing aren’t perfect:
“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. Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa.”
It’s OK, guys. We’ll get through this together, it’ll be hard at first and we’ll never be able to watch Step Up the same way again. But we will get through it. I hope.
