Although they made their statement as mature as possible, there was sadness in Channing’s Instagram post.

He posted:

“Hey world! 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.”

So what went wrong? A source told the E-News:

“Jenna wanted to be at home with her daughter, while Channing was focused on his career and wanted experiences outside of family life.”

However, there are other sources stating they were both balancing work and home life and there were no visible signs they were soon going to split.

Previous events

There were rumors of the couple splitting up before they officially released their statement. Dewan attended the annual Vanity Fair Oscars after party alone without husband Tatum. When asked she replied Tatum was on daddy duty and was happy to have a night off.

But the split wasn’t so obvious. The ex-couple were regularly tagging each other on social media with sweet messages, often with their daughter pics.

In February, the actress revealed to Health about the perception that they had a “perfect life”. She added they work hard to make their marriage work and no one is 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.”

She had continued:

“But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work. Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that. We’ve always had the same values. But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other.”

There are also rumors that the strong reason the couple parted ways is Tatum’s heavy drinking and extramarital flirting. But most fans and magazines do not support this claim. Dewan also denied this claim.
