Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan ‘fell out of love’, it’s been claimed.
The actor and actress, who share four-year-old daughter Everly together, released a joint statement on Monday confirming their split following eight years of marriage.
US reports suggest the pair’s relationship began to break down as a result of the Magic Mike star’s soaring success – including a foray into producing and directing as well as a string of big film roles.
“She is troubled by his success. He was turning down jobs because of her, and they were fighting a lot,” a source told Page Six.
Jenna last appeared on the big screen in 2012 rom com Slightly Single In LA. She is currently serving as a host and mentor on NBC talent show World of Dance.
The source added that the split had been on the horizon for some time.
“Jenna always said they had to put work into their marriage to keep it alive, and while Channing is a great dad to their daughter, [Jenna] felt like he stopped wanting to work as hard on them as a married couple.
“This has been a long time coming. They fell out of love.”
The website reports that Channing and Jenna had been separated for some time, and while Jenna has stayed in their Beverly Hills home, Channing is living at their ranch in Ojai, California.
They were last pictured on a red carpet together back in September at the premiere of Channing’s film Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
Notably, Jenna attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party in March without her husband.
Earlier this year, she told Health magazine: “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…
“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.”
In a statement shared on social media on Monday afternoon, the ex-couple said there were “no secrets or salacious events at the root of our decision”.
They said: “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.”
Signed “Chan & Jenna”, the statement said the split was “just two best friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible”.
Their decision to go public was to avoid the truth behind their separation being “distorted into ‘alternative facts’,” they said.
The pair, who are both 37, stressed they are “still a family” and would always be “loving dedicated parents” to their daughter.
