Inside the relationship of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan – from how they met to how they split

OK, let’s hold back the tears, well try too as  the much loved Hollywood couple is no more, lets take a look back at where this Hollywood relationship started:

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan started their romance after meeting on the set of popular dance film ”Step Up” back in 2006. The spark between the two was something that was undeniable, despite Tatum trying to diffuse the romance, their feelings for one another continued to grow as the pair became a couple whilst filming.

After two years of dating People magazine reported that the hunk had proposed to the brunette beauty in an intimate reception, surrounded by their close friends.

Their bond continued to grow, and feelings became very intense for their two as by July 2009, the well known couple said ‘I do’ in what was said to be ‘a private estate’ which overlooked the ocean in Malibu.

The sexiest man alive as declared by People magazine became a Father to daughter Everly, May 31st 2013 which showed a different side to the actor as he told Chelsea Handler he was in ”crying fits” whilst watching his wife give birth to their new baby.

The Dewan’s owed their relationship to the film where they first met. So, on the 10 year anniversary of the release of Step Up in 2016, the two recreated the famous lift of which they shot on screen. 10 years after filming, the two’s love and compassion for each other continued to grow, the pair became inseparable and were considered one of Hollywood’s most loved and well known couples.

To fans despair, the two decided to separate earlier this year despite of their 8 year romance. Both stars announced this on their Instagram page in a joint statement reading ‘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 a different path for now.’ No further comment was made after the release of this statement, as they refused to comment.

The Magic Mike star, has since been linked to pop star Jessie J to fans surprise. The news circulated on Twitter as the unlikely couple were spotted playing mini golf together, as well as the star reportedly supporting the singer backstage on tour.

The ending of Dewan and Tatum has become a lot more surreal as Dewan earlier this week finally filed for divorce against the hunk citing ‘irreconcilable differences.’ Tatum responded to the request, and the once in love couple have agreed on joing legal custody of their give year old daughter,  but the actress wishes to have her name restored to ‘Jenna Dewan.’
