Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum are heading for divorce. The pair has been together since 2006 and tied the knot in 2009. For eight years, they were 'couple goals' for all of us, making our hearts melt with their adorable red carpet moments, sweet social media posts and soul-melting support for each other.

 But after being together for nearly 11 years (out of which they were married for 7), the couple released a joint statement saying that they had "lovingly chosen to separate as a couple".

The internet was shocked to hear this news. To people, they seemed like the perfect couple. So where did that fairytale start to unravel? Let's take a look at how our favorite celebrity couple came to their decision to 'consciously uncouple'.

When 2018 rolled in, Jenna started appearing for events mostly by herself. This caused a lot of Chan & Jenna fans to raise their eyebrows. The super pair always appeared on the red carpet together, but when Jenna stepped out for the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party alone, people took note. But this wasn't the only event she went solo for. Jenna also made a lonesome appearance on the iHeartRadio Music Awards carpet as well as the Kids' Choice Awards, though Channing was presenting at the award ceremony.

 The last event the couple attended together was the premiere of 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'.

Jenna spoke candidly to Health magazine about how it drove her mad when people said that she and Channing had the 'perfect' marriage. "I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work," she admitted to the interviewer, adding "But we’re not perfect! Are you kidding? We fight like other couples, we disagree about things, we have days where we don’t really like each other." 

The couple still put an effort for Everly, their daughter

Channing and Jenna were still pretty set on making things work for their little girl, Everly. Like they emphasized in their statements, they remained to be dedicated to Everly. Just a few weeks ago, the two proved that they are still parents first and foremost, with Channing sharing an image of himself and Jenna with facepaint courtesy little Everly. 

Taking cryptic digs at each other on Instagram

Jenna loves to post an occasional inspirational quote or two, but the dancer and actress recently shared a more soul-stirring message with her fans that said: "Entangle with lovers, call them reflections, call in soul mates, and call them awareness" which led fans to wonder if she was talking about Channing. 

But it wasn't just Jenna sharing cryptic content. Channing also took to Instagram to show off a brand-new dirt bike he lovingly dubbed 'his girl'. Channing is on a new path of self-discovery and it looks like he's beginning to dive into his passions with a new vigor.

It looks like the couple did do a lot to make their relationship work. Despite there being trouble with them, they refrained from making any harsh decisions before they came to the decision of getting a divorce. Their divorce certainly won't get in the way of being parents to little Everly, but it still makes one wonder: Is true love dead?
