Jenna Dewan ‘gut­ted’ af­ter Ta­tum split

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

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.”
