Jenna Dewan was married to famous actor, Channing Tatum for almost a decade. They had initially met when they worked together on the set of Step Up. They had a daughter together during their marriage named Evelyn but they couldn’t keep their love going any longer. They announced that they were ending their marriage on April of 2018.
In a prepared joint statement published by The Vulture, both Tatum and Dewan had nice words to explain their decision, “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.”
Despite their positive comments on their separation, they have still become a fixture in the tabloids since the announcement due to what's financially at stake for both parties. With Channing Tatum's net worth standing between $60 to $80 million, the actor has more to lose, depending on whether he and Dewan signed a prenuptial agreement. Since they announcement was positive, it has been speculated that a fair agreement was worked out behind the scenes.
