Five years after split, Channing Tatum is reflecting on his former relationship with Jenna Dewan.
According to the Magic Mike Star, “We fought for it for a really long time even though we both sorts of knew that we had sort of grown apart.”
The pair met on the set of the 2006 movie “Step Up”. They tied the knot in 2009 and welcomed daughter Everly in 2013. However, the pair decided to separate and filed for divorce later in 2018.
The actor described the early days after their separation as it was super scary and terrifying”. However, he suggested that everything worked out for the best. “It was probably exactly what I needed,” he added.
“I don’t think I would’ve ever done the work on myself in the way that I had to do the work on myself to really try to figure out what next.”
On the other hand, Channing Tatum describes the separation as “unbearable”, she continued, “The pain hit me like a tumbling avalanche. I was completely overcome with fear and sadness. It took many moments of sitting alone with my grief to force me into surrendering to my roller coaster of a situation.”
However, the two have found love again. Dewan is engaged to Steve Kazee and they share a son 2-year-old son Callum. As for Tatum, he and Jessie J dated for two years but split in 2020. Currently, he’s now in a relationship with Zoë Kravitz.
