Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have been separated for months, and “fell out of love” after Dewan struggled to accept the demands on her husband’s time that his success entailed, Page Six reports today.
The couple, who have a 4-year-old daughter, Everly, issued a statement on Monday saying that they had “lovingly chosen to separate,” adding that although they “had a magical journey together” they were “on different paths for now.”
The statement sought to head off speculation about infidelity, saying, “There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision.”
However Page Six reports that “deep divisions” had opened up between the couple, who are both 37 and have been married nearly nine years, “about the time they were spending apart” owing to the stellar progress of Channing’s career.
A source told Page Six: “She is troubled by his success. He was turning down jobs because of her, and they were fighting a lot. He has been filming the Lego Movie sequel and has at least four other acting projects in development, and that isn’t even his focus. He’s moving toward producing and directing.
“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.”
According to Page Six, Tatum has more than 20 projects in development as a producer.
Tatum moved out of the family home in Beverly Hills some months ago, and is now living at their ranch in Ojai, California.
Page Six reports, saying that they “first heard rumblings of a split around the Oscars in March, when Jenna attended the Vanity Fair party without Channing saying it was a ‘girls’ night.” She has also been spotted partying in Hollywood with stylist Brad Goreski.”
