Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum announced at the beginning of the week that they were calling time on their nine-year marriage. And after the initial shock of it all we felt an overwhelming feeling of sadness. Mostly for them, but also a tiny bit for ourselves - because if they can't make it, surely none of us can?!

The couple released a joint statement on their Instagram pages explaining what was going on, but there weren't really any specific reasons for them splitting after 13 years together.

But according to reports, the real reason for their split is pretty sad.

"He left for weeks at a time for trips with friends," a source close to Jenna told Us Weekly. "Jenna wanted him to go out and do the things he wanted to do and was always supportive. But it became clear that he enjoyed being away. She gave him all the space he wanted, but it wasn’t good for their marriage. They tried to find a new happy and a new way of being that worked for both of them, but ultimately they couldn’t find that place."

Another source added: "Things had turned more into a friendship between Jenna and Channing," and that "They were constantly traveling for work and it turned out that they were better apart and not together romantically anymore."
