Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum wowed the world with their relationship and as the duo decided to separate, they rocked the Internet with the news.
The duo who decided to call it quits after nine years of marriage, uploaded a letter on their Instagram timelines to announce their decision.
While the emotional statement took fans by surprise, it did set a tone of how two partners could amicably separate without hurting each other.
This is what they wrote:
'We have something we would like to share.
'First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it's a consequence of the lives we've chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for.
'We're living in an incredible moment in time, but it's also a time where truth can be easily distorted into "alternative facts" :)
'So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn't read it here then it's most certainly fiction.
'We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple.
'We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together.
'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.
'There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision -- just two best-friends realising 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.
'We won't be commenting beyond this, and we thank you all in advance for respecting our family's privacy.
'Sending lots of love to everyone. Chan & Jenna.'
