Jenna Dewan ‘gutted’ after Tatum split
Jenna Dewan was “gutted” when she realized her marriage to channing tatum was over, because she couldn’t imagine life without the Magic Mike hunk. the star, who is now dating businessman Steve Kazee — and expecting his child, admits divorce hit her really hard and forced her to take another look at her life after she and channing drifted apart.
“i always say no one gets married to hopefully get divorced,” she told People magazine. “People grow and they change and sometimes they don’t grow and change together. So it wasn’t an overnight thing that happened. there was no one event. i think it was just a slow realization that we wanted different things.
“i was just gutted. it was so difficult for me. it was the loss of an idealistic future for myself and my life ... i met him (tatum) when i was 24, i didn’t know life without chan ... it was a hard journey of growth and change.”
dewan now insists she’s in a “joyful new place” in her life as she prepares to become a mum again, adding, “you would never expect your life to take a turn the way it does, but embracing it and starting fresh and figuring out what you want in life ... i’m happy about this new chapter.”
