Tatums Split: What Happened?
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum announced Monday that they have “lovingly chosen to separate” after nearly nine years of marriage, according to Yahoo!. It’s a split that has taken fans by surprise and is considered to be on the more shocking end of the spectrum of celebrity breakups.
Or is it? People reported the couple has been separated for months and that their separation has been “a long time coming,” according to one insider. So where did it all go wrong? From the outside, it looked as if the fun-loving couple had it all: a beautiful family, successful careers and great chemistry.
The pair met on set of the 2006 film “Step Up” and tied the knot in July 2009 in Malibu, Calif. The Tatums continued to find success in Hollywood, with Jenna landing TV roles (“The Playboy Club,” “American Horror Story”), and Channing focusing on film. But in 2012, his career catapulted to the next level with box-office hits like “21 Jump Street” and “Magic Mike,” and he was on his way to becoming one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood. He was also crowned People’s 2012 Sexiest Man Alive.
What they were doing seemed to be working. But in 2017, Dewan revealed that communication was their biggest relationship challenge. Perhaps that was the first sign that the couple faced challenges behind closed doors. If many of the reports out there are to be believed, they started drifting apart around this time last year. Still, you wouldn’t have known it as the pair attended various red-carpet events throughout 2017 and had gushy social-media posts.
That’s why it was surprising when they announced their separation by posting joint statements on social-media accounts.
Swift stalker gets 10 years’ probation
A man who violated a restraining order and threatened to kill Taylor Swift was sentenced to 10 years’ probation Monday, according to news reports.
Frank Andrew Hoover, who pleaded guilty to defying the lifetime protective order, will be monitored by GPS surveillance for at least a year, and must keep at least a mile away from the singer and her family, TMZ reported. He also has to give up any firearms and undergo psychological and drug testing.
Hoover, under a lifetime restraining order issued in Kansas, was arrested in November 2016 while following Swift to the airport after a concert in Austin, Texas. Around the same time, he sent emails to her father, Scott Swift, according to E! News, which cited court documents.
In January, news sites reported that Hoover faced new charges because the emails contained death threats against the singer and her family. According to the indictment, Hoover wrote: “enjoy the brain aneurysms and death.”
“Decided that we are going to end all the Swifts on one day because I can’t stand that virus (expletive) your daughter spread,” Hoover wrote.
