Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan first met in 2006 when they were cast as on-screen lovers in the hit dance movie Step Up. They kept their relationship going when the cameras stopped rolling and tied the knot three years later.

But unfortunately, couple has split after eight years of marriage.

They released statement to their separate Instagram pages, saying: "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."

People magazine says rumours started circulating about their marriage troubles when Jenna turned up to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party without Channing. But she claims it was because it was his turn to look after their daughter Everly.

Ms Dewan Tatum also highlighted to Health magazine that they had issues just like every couple, saying: "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."

Channing's only role for 2018 is the 3D animated comedy Small Foot where he plays a yeti scientist alongside James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Danny DeVito and Gina Rodriguez.

Jenna is the executive producer for the Step Up TV series, which Channing is also a part of.
