Channing Tatum and Jena Dewan Tatum have announced their separation after nine years of marriage. The pair made the announcement on their instagram pages.
Jena and Channing have a four-year-old daughter Everly together.

Channing Tatum and Jena Dewan Tatum mentioned in their joint statement that they had lovingly chosen to separate. The two also insisted that there were neither secrets nor salacious events leading to their decision to separate.
The former showbiz power couple’s last public appearance together was at the Los Angeles premiere of War Dog: A Soldier’s Best Friend on 6 November.
They met on the set of their 2006 movie Step Up and married three years later in 2009.
