Channing Tatum, from Jenna to Jessie

Where It All Started

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan met on the set of Step Up when they were cast as lead roles. Channing was a teenager doing community service at A school of performing arts and Jenna who played a teenage ballet student at the school.

Back in 2013 Channing during an interview with Elle, he admitted that he wasn’t going to ask Jenna out, saying “I had just gotten out of a pretty long relationship, so I was in no way ready for another. I was trying to run from what I knew Jenna was — not someone I was just going to date.”

Although his mind was changed when a friend talked him into it. That night he admitted to showing up to her room, wearing a sombrero and “the rest was history.”

In December 2016, Jenna admitted during an interview with Cosmopolitan that the start was very weird.

She admitted, “It was two nights of being weird. We hadn’t even kissed. And then he went out partying with a bunch of dancers. His room was right above mine, and he came down drunk with a sombrero on, banging on my door. He was like, ‘I couldn’t stop thinking about you. Let’s do this. I just want to be with you.’ From that point forward, we were together.”

Hey world! So…We have something we would like to share. First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into “alternative facts” 😉 So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction. We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. 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. 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, Chan&Jenna. [sic]”
