Looking Back Through Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan’s Posts Will Break Your Heart 💔

There was not a dry eye around after Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum announced they were splitting after 8 years of marriage.

Even though the news is still fresh (it’s been less than 24 hours), most of us are sitting back shaking our heads wondering what went wrong with the picture perfect couple. Following reports that the two have been separated for months and Channing has already moved out of the family home, we needed to do a deep dive and try and piece together what went wrong.

The first stop is social media, and it appears there are few actual mentions of the two recently together. Other than the very recent photos they both posted when Everly painted their faces just two weeks ago … there are no recent references to spending time as a couple or family.

The absence of photographic evidence and public admiration for one another is suspect, especially considering many of Channing’s previous posts regarding Dewan were the cutest and sweetest things we’ve ever read. Here’s what we mean:

He called Dewan his Rainbow, a Superhero and a Queen.  Her cute nickname, Cake, was also regularly used.

He even boasted about her flourishing career:

C’mon, read these words!  How did this happen?!

I took this just days after jenna and I (mostly jenna) brought our little girl into the world. I've taken many like it over the past 3 years but this is one of my favorites. She was so tired. Haha. But she has such deep strength and other worldly grace. Watching her in those first days transform into a mother was life changing. She was every bit the beautiful, sexy, funny, flawed creature I fell in love with. But the prism turned and showed a whole new light that I had no idea existed, the light of a mothers love. Thank you for that baby. Saw this quote today –" The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Theodore Hesburgh" there are a lot of important things in being a father. Who knows what the most important thing is? All I know is that in my case this is pretty high on my list. Love you cake!

And the public praise and attraction seemingly went both ways, Dewan seemed obsessed with Chan

They LOL’d together

He even credited her for keeping him on the right path to success

So, while it may not yet be exactly clear why Channing and Jenna decided to breakup, we can cry ourselves to sleep, over and over again through these old posts … until he deletes them and they’re gone forever 💔😭💔
