It's shocking and saddening, but it's apparently true:
The actor and actress made this unexpected announced on Monday evening... and we're still waiting for them to say it was a belated April Fool's Day joke.
Sadly, however, we may be waiting a very long time for this confession to be made.
Because Tatum and Dewan may have written their separation statement in an amicable tone, but they also write it in a serious one.
This eight-year marriage really does appear to be over.
There's really no other way to interpret a statement that reads "we have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple" and which continues:
"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."
That all sounds very nice and sincere and everything, but... come on!
What the heck?!?
The stars are still in love and allegedly have amazing sex, yet are breaking up?
According to a Page Six insider, the attractive couple has split “due to spending more time apart because of the pressure of work," with the source delving into further detail as follows:
"Channing has been working non-stop, with four movies announced for 2018 alone. It is hard on a marriage to be apart so much, especially when you have a young child.
"Plus Jenna is in pre-production for the movie, Berlin I Love You."
This is a common reason given for many celebrity splits, a busy schedule for both parties involved.
And on one hand we get it: How do you sustain a romance when you barely see each other?
But on the other hand: if you're truly in love, as Channing and Jenna claim to be, can't you just work less? Or make the most of the time you do have together?
One would think the pair would try extra hard to do so because they share a four-year old child.
Adds this Page Six source:
"Both Channing and Jenna are devoted to their daughter and have worked hard to spend as much happy family time together, despite the problems in their relationship that the distance has seemed to magnify."
It doesn't sound as though infidelity played any kind of role in this split, not considering the tone of last night's confirmation.
This is how they concluded the stunning public statement...
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.
We are still a family and will always be loving dedicated parents to Everly.
We won't be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family's privacy.
Sending lots of love to everyone.
And we send that love right back.
May each star find the happiness that he or she deserves and may he or she possibly take a lot of clothes off in some sort of sexy pictorial in the process.
