Twitter is *inconsolable* over Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s separation — and honestly, so are we

Are you ready to get emotional? Better be, because YOU’RE GOING TO GET EMOTIONAL. After nearly nine years of marriage, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have decided to separate.

The couple, who famously fell in love on the set of Step Up, announced their split on Monday, April 2nd, via People in a joint statement:

“Hey world!

"So…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 easily get 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 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. 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."

Channing and Jenna, who are parents to four-year-old daughter Everly, also shared the statement on their social media accounts:

As often happens when celebrity couples call it quits, Twitter is absolutely inconsolable about the Channing Tatum-Jenna Dewan Tatum split.

Like, seriously, pass these Twitter users some tissues, because they are feeling SO MANY FEELINGS. (And honestly, so are we.) Hang in there, Twitter, it’ll be okay.
