In latest celebrity news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced their separation. They released this news on Instagram stating, “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.” They added, “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.” Yet, rumors are still arising as to why the pair is splitting. Some say this celebrity break-up was caused by flirting and drinking. A source tells that these rumors are not true. “We understand that everyone is super interested in speculating on their private life and that there are people who think they have an idea of the inner life of this relationship, but it’s simply not the case,” the source says. “The media is fabricating stories and none of these accusations are remotely true. Channing and Jenna released an honest and loving statement which is the only truth.” The former celebrity couple plans to continue their lives as best friends caring for their 4-year-old daughter, Everly.

There simply isn’t truth to many of the rumors about Channing and Jenna’s recent celebrity break-up. What are some ways to communicate your break-up to family and friends?
