Hollywood actor, Channing Tatum and his ,wife Jenna Dewan have announced they are splitting up.
The couple say that “no secrets or salacious events” caused the split – they’ve instead “lovingly chosen to separate” after nearly nine years of marriage.
Channing and Jenna met on the set of Step Up in 2006 and married in 2009.
The pair, who have a four-year-old daughter, added they’re “still a family” and will always be “loving, dedicated parents”.
The actors said the public announcement was intended to avoid their separation being “distorted into ‘alternative facts'”.
“There are no secrets or salacious events at the root of our decision – just two best friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible.”
The couple got engaged in 2008 – but Channing told Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw last year that it didn’t quite go to plan.
“When I proposed to my wife I did something pretty cruel because I thought she was on to me.
“I basically told her I never wanted to get married to try to throw her off.”
