ICYMI–this week, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced their split after 9 years of marriage. The two, who seemed perfect for each other, met on the set of the movie “Step Up,” and from there, fell madly in love.
The dancers and actors were our last hope at having celebrity romances last, but, alas, their differences caught up with them and they’ve decided to call it quits. Tatum published a statement on his social media profile saying:
So…We have something we would like to share.
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. 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. 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.
Since the news went viral, fans and Internet users have been feeling some type of way about the divorce/break-up.

Me: People get too caught up in celebrities and their private lives.
Also, me: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are separating. Love is dead. I don’t know how to exist in this world.
