As far as celebrity breakups go, many aren’t too surprised at their frequency. It must be hard to keep a relationship together when dealing with the stress of different schedules, locations, and the public eye’s scrutiny. Even with all of those potential factors looming, the recent announcement of separation between Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have thrown many for a loop.
The couple was coming up on 9 years of marriage and have been together since 2006. They met on the set of the film Step Up, which put both of them on the map as dancers and actors.
Since then, Tatum has gained massive success and notoriety, while Dewan has also enjoyed numerous projects and opportunities in the limelight.
The two share a daughter named Everly who is 4.
While many are still trying to get over the shock of their split announcement, there were signs that the two may have been having trouble.
In recent interviews, both Tatum and Dewan have stressed how hard marriage is. Even to the point that they admitted sometimes asking the other person “On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love me right now?”
Dewan was also recently interviewed about their relationship and she said that when people assume they have such a perfect life, she wants to scream.
Rumors have swirled regarding the reason for the breakup but many have been shut down. Their rep even provided a statement saying salacious stories and rumors are being made in an attempt to make headlines and are not at all accurate.
Dewan was seen out shopping in Los Angeles this weekend without her wedding ring for the first time since the split announcement.
Dewan attended an event just last month where she wore the noticeable sparkler. The day the announcement was made, she was seen leaving Soul Cycle wearing the ring.
Tatum was seen with their daughter Everly at a Target a couple of days after the split announcement and was still wearing his ring.
While the two have made it clear this is a separation and haven’t used the word divorce, that could potentially be imminent.
