Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have separated after nine years of marriage, while his career continues to soar — causing deep divisions about the time they were spending apart.
Jenna has struggled with the pace of Channing’s career, according to a source, who said, “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.”
Channing — who has 4-year-old daughter Everly with Jenna — has more than 20 projects in development as a producer. Jenna — already a well-known dancer when she met Channing on 2006’s “Step Up” — just shot the movie “Berlin, I Love You” and is in the Fox musical “Mixtape.”
The pair have been separated for months, and he has moved out of the family home. Page Six first heard rumblings of a split around the Oscars in March, when Jenna, 37, attended the Vanity Fair party without Channing, also 37, saying it was a “girls’ night.” She has also been spotted partying in Hollywood with stylist Brad Goreski. Their reps did not respond to requests for comment.
The source further explained of their differences: “Channing is living at their ranch in Ojai, Calif., and Jenna is in Beverly Hills.”
While they still spend time together with Everly, Channing enjoys “living like a dude at their ranch,” while Jenna is a fitness-obsessed vegan, the friend added.
Channing told GQ in 2014, “I have an inner fat kid in me . . . I can completely lose myself into just absolutely satisfying things — a really amazing cheeseburger, a pizza, good fries, a beer . . . I probably drink too much . . . My wife, that’s what she bought into,” adding he’s cut back now that he’s a dad and quits alcohol before filming a movie.
