“I’d come to realize the dynamic I was in wasn’t serving me nor was it serving my daughter. First and foremost, I had to accept the realization this isn’t working and had moved into hurting. The public saw Channing and I in this idealized romanticized light. This made things difficult for me because I like being as honest and real as I can,” Jenna reveals as the reason she and Channing Tatum split up.

“People are like, ‘How do you get through this?’ I didn’t run away from my feelings. I let myself cry. I let myself grieve,” Dewan told Cosmpolitan in an interview for the magazine’s January 2019 issue.

“This is one of those situations where I will see the light. The dawn is coming.”

“I’m obviously super aware that people know me, they know Channing, they know us together,” she added. “We’d been a beloved couple for a long time.”

“I do believe in love still, but I also believe it begins with really digging deep and learning how to love yourself,” said Dewan, who shares her daughter Everly with Tatum.

“And then I think you sort of transmute that out to attract the right partner. I think that people who are meant to be sort of find each other.”

In November 2015, Jenna Dewan Tatum looked gorgeous as she stopped by the set of “Extra” for an interview with Mario Lopez.
