Why Did Channing And Jenna Split?
In April 2018, the couple made a joint announcement about their separation on their respective social media accounts:
“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.”
Later on, though, Page Six reported that the real reason behind their separation was Channing’s work schedule, and even said that they eventually fell out of love due to his success and him wanting to work on his career.
Whatever the ultimate cause, Jenna told Women’s Health in July 2018 that the breakup was a ‘positive’ thing and that the relationship with Channing had “[changed] into a new form that [was] actually better for both people involved,” as she told the publication.
After his divorce, Channing Tatum began dating singer Jessie J. The two first met publicly at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, during which Jessie and Mark Wahlberg presented him with the Best Comedic Performance award for 22 Jump Street.
Rumours of their dating life began in early October 2018, with People Magazine reporting that the two were seen playing minigolf together. By November, they were pretty much Instagram official.
Jenna, on the other hand, began dating singer and Tony Award-winning stage actor Steve Kazee in October 2018. The two initially kept their relationship fairly low-key, with only a few public appearances here and there over the next few months.
Just recently, though, Jenna and Steve made it Instagram official, with a loving couple shot of the two shared on social media on June 6, simply captioned, “Speaking of peace....❤️”
