Everything We Know About Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan's Split
THEY HAVE 'LOVINGLY CHOSEN TO SEPARATE'
"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," read a part of the couple's joint statement to PEOPLE, announcing their breakup in April 2018. "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."
THEY WEREN'T SPENDING TIME TOGETHER BEFORE ANNOUNCING THEIR SPLIT
While they may have appeared as happy as ever at red carpet events, a source tells PEOPLE increased time apart eventually took a toll on their relationship.
“When Everly was younger, Channing and Jenna used to spend a lot of family time together,” says a source. “For the past year, they seem to have spent less time together.”
CHANNING HAS MOVED OUT OF THE FAMILY HOUSE
The Magic Mike star has moved out of the L.A. family home he shared with his wife of almost nine years and their 4-year-old daughter Everly.
“This has been a long time coming,” one insider tells PEOPLE. “Like any marriage, they’ve had their ups and downs over the years but they really started to grow apart within the last year.”
THEY STILL CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER
There are no hard feelings between the former couple. “They honestly do still love each other and that’s not just for show,” a source tells PEOPLE.
Over time, the source says the pair started to lose their romantic spark. "That love turned more into a friendship rather than the passion they felt when they first met and fell in love.”
THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY BIG ISSUES
There was not a big fight or occasion that led to the pair's decision to separate, rather Tatum and Dewan simply drifted apart over time. "That almost made it harder for them to decide to separate because there weren’t any huge issues, and there’s not one person to point a finger at as the one who screwed up," a source tells PEOPLE.
THEY'VE FOUND SUPPORT IN THEIR FRIENDS
In the wake of their split, both Tatum and Dewan have been turning to friends for support.
“Channing has been spending more time with his friends over the last couple months and Jenna, of course, has her close group of girlfriends that she’s been leaning on,” says the source, adding, “They’ll always be connected.”
THEY FELL OUT OF LOVE
“They really wanted to make their marriage work,” a source tells PEOPLE. “But neither of them are people who will stay in something that isn’t fully right.”
“They fell out of love, and it was a tough realization to come to,” adds the source. “They are both just incredibly sad.”
CHANNING TURNED DOWN MOVIE ROLES TO SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY
Tatum was making family time a priority before his split from Dewan, a source tells PEOPLE. The actor slowed down his busy career to spend more time with Dewan and their 4-year-old daughter Everly.
“He was actually turning down jobs to spend more time with family,” says the source, adding that Tatum hasn’t been on location for a film since making Logan Lucky in October 2016.
CHANNING IS HAVING A 'HARD' TIME ADJUSTING TO THE SPLIT
The breakup has “been hard for Channing,” a source close to the couple told PEOPLE. “He always had Jenna and their family to go home to, so having their separation be ‘official’ now has been a big adjustment for him.”
As for Dewan, a second source said, “Jenna has a super-packed schedule and a ton of girlfriends to lean on and spend time with. Her life isn’t really changing … if anything, she’s just busier.”
